Alternate names for US highways, Geocoding REST service

In our application the ability to do geocodes on US and state highways is rather important. Some of these have alternate names, for example US 422 is also known as the Benjamin Franklin Highway.

 

Our users know it as US 422, ArcGIS knows it at Benjamin Franklin Highway. If I was using ArcGIS for desktop I could use an alternate name table, but there doesn't seem to be an equivalent feature for ArcGIS REST API. Of course I could take of this manually, but is there a way to get ArcGIS REST API to acknowledge alternate names?
