For example Orlando, Florida. The 'county name' ia actually Orange and the 'county seat' name is Orlando. My question is this, which is used mostly in the US for the purpose of peoples addresses, the actual 'county name' or the 'count seat' name.
Hope someone can enlighten me. TIA.
The county seat is the name of the city or township where the county offices are located. It's like the capitol of the county. In your example, the city of Orlando is where the county of Orange's administrative offices are located.
but that doesn't answer his question..

Not really. "By county" is a navigation and section & page naming issue, but for address listings themselves, it's absolutely the city (that the Post Office uses), NOT the county.
Los Angeles County:
Los Angeles (the city proper)
Burbank (incorporated city)
Santa Monica (incorporated city)
etc., many others that are within the city of LA itself, and *outside* of LA city that are incorporated cities in their own right.

The county is completely irrelevant to the address of any home/business or location and is NOT a valid address that's used by the Post Office.
