Instead of Navy Yard, how about Nationals Park?
Should U Street/African-American Civil War Memorial/Cardozo just be U Street?
And wouldn't we all be better off if Metro renamed Smithsonian as "Stand Right Walk Left"?
We want to hear your ideas – serious or not – on how Metro stations should be renamed. Give us your thoughts on how the names can be more useful, more accurate, less of a mouthful, or just funnier for locals.
We ask because JDLand reported last week that there will be slashes added to the Navy Yard name. Back in May, Matt Johnson from Greater Greater Washington argued that we should be moving in the other direction, that stations should return to their original 15-character limit.
So leave us a comment with your ideas, or tweet with the #metronames hashtag. We'll be gathering the best suggestions so we can have a new map ready for you next week.
