Adding alternative business names to GMB

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Currently our GMB info has our business name as Thom & Tom Ltd, which is the correct format. If someone searches on maps using this format they can find our business.

 

However a lot of clients use the format Thom and Tom, which is not recognised as us in search or maps.

 

Is there are way of adding an alias, or 'also known as', to our company information on GMB in order that people will find us whichever format they use?

 

Many thanks

It is possible to edit the business in MapMaker and add a "Local" name, as this is how local people refer to you.

Is there any other way now that MapMaker has been discontinued?
