Let's change "Newark Liberty International Airport" back to "Newark International." Inserting "Liberty" to me has always seemed to be a facade of empty patriotism - sounds great, but what does it mean? Thank goodness, the folks at Port Authority at least had the decency to retain the "Newark" moniker, sparing the good people of this troubled but emerging city another black eye.
Just my two centavos.

Sky Harbor International is a great name and when they tried to change it to Barry Goldwater Intl., the whole town went ballistic. He got a terminal named after him instead. Keep Sky Harbor the same. It's unique.

CPH - Copenhagen Airport should be renamed to Ellehammer International Airport. After Jacob Ellehammer, the Danish aviation pioneer.
BTW he invented the radial engine and the first one ever made still works!

While it's not my home airport, I always have thought that LIT should be renamed William Clinton Int'l, after Slick Willy, of course.
As for my home airport, SYR. I find that Syracuse Hancock Int'l is very fitting, but I wouldn't mind it becoming Greater Syracuse Regional Airport, or something to that effect. It's not like we have international flights or anything .

I like O'Hare International Airport (ORD). It's obviously unique and to me it's a very fitting name for a large airport. I find it classy and it has come to represent Chicago Aviation in many ways.
To me ORD is like a second home; I have always felt comfortable and excited in the terminals and since young ages I have awed at the hustle-bustle of the airport, gawked at the modern UA terminal and have stooped in amazement as a 747-436 in the colors of British Airways has sprung to life and soared off a mile long runway into blue skies. I truly love O'Hare, from the aggravating security to the comfortable UA Red Carpet Club! It marks the start of an interest that I have had in airlines and airliners for as long as I can remember... So I say, keep the name!
