After all this time, I thought they'd have chosen the names by now?

I certainly hope Goblin survives as one of the official names. But I
suspect that the DC Lines will get a new name.

My fear is that they'll want to name lines after some socialist hero of the
past who once lived along the route.

I quite like that, with a few exceptions (George Best, John Lennon) in the
UK we don't name airports after people. It makes a change from the rest of
the world where you often fly into Somewhere Dead Politician airport.

Yeah, but I'm not sure the [Ken] "Livingstone Line" or [Tony] "Benn Line"
will carry the same gravitas!

Agreed, and I hope those two examples revert back to sensible geographic
names in due course.

In the US, they typically name airports after former local mayors that
no-one outside the city has heard of, and few in the city remember. At
least we don't do that. But in 1966 the Irish renamed the two main Dublin
stations after executed revolutionary heroes of the 1916 Easter Rising
(Seán Heuston and James Connolly).

.... and renamed the third main Dublin station after Padraig Pearse.

And at the same time [1966: the 50th anniversary of the Easter Rising]
other major Irish railway stations were also suitably renamed after the
heroes of 1916. Cork - Thomas Kent, Limerick - Cornelius Colbert, Galway -
Eamonn Ceannt, etc.

Yes, it wasn't just a Dublin thing. All 16 of the executed leaders of the Uprising got a station renamed after them in
1966:

Pearse Station (after Padraig and William Pearse; formerly Westland Row)
Connolly Station (James Connolly, formerly Amiens Street)
Heuston Station (Seán Heuston, formerly Kingsbridge)
Cork Kent Station (Thomas Kent)
Limerick Colbert Station (Con Colbert)
Dun Laoghaire Mallin Station (Michael Mallin)
Waterford Plunkett Station (Joseph Plunkett)
Galway Ceannt Station (Eamonn Ceannt)
Dundalk Clarke Station (Thomas Clarke)
Drogheda MacBride Station (John MacBride)
Sligo MacDiarmada Station (Seán MacDiarmada)
Bray Daly Station (Edward Daly)
Wexford O’Hanrahan Station (Michael O’Hanrahan)
Kilkenny MacDonagh Station (Thomas MacDonagh)
Tralee Casement Station (Roger Casement)

My fear is that something similar might be suggested for the LO lines.

Far more likely these days is they're named after some ethnic minority "hero"

you just get the P22 service or whatever and you know it will.

Not really. Logan Airport in Boston is named after a WWI general who
was later active in state politics. O'Hare in Chicago is named after a
WW II figher ace. (We skip over the detail that his father was Al
Capone's lawyer.)

La Guardia in New York is indeed named after a former mayor, but one
who was nationally famous. JFK in New York I suspect you can figure
out.

In Washington DC, Dulles airport was named after our leading cold warrior
and everyone agrees that renaming National airport after Ronald Reagan
who ostentatiously disliked the city made no sense.

The Houston airport is named after US President George H.W. Bush.

The Atlanta airport was indeed named after obscure local official
William B. Hartsfield but they later added Maynard Jackson who was
both the mayor and a nationally prominent civil rights figure.

Personally, I think that the airport in Rio de Janeiro has an excellent name.

The other category of airport names would be famous aviators, in which I can
count Sydney (AU) and Istanbul SAW. Any more?

Billy Bishop in Toronto, WW I flying ace

Billy Mitchell in Milwaukee WI USA, US air force

Jorge Newbery in Buenos Aires, locally famous aviator

Benitez in Santiago, founder of the Chilean air force

There's lots more but the airports are pretty small.
