Metro’s online survey about station names for the new Silver Line to Dulles and Reston will be ending on March 21. Have you filled it out?

This is your chance to push for station names that create a sense of place and tie in to the region’s history and geography, rather than a boring, long, hyphenated string of road names.

Here are my picks, versus the official recommendations from the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors:

My pickFairfax Board pick
Scotts RunTysons-McLean
Tysons CornerTysons I&II
WestparkTysons Central
Spring HillTysons-Spring Hill Road
WiehleReston-Wiehle Avenue
RestonReston Town Center
HerndonHerndon-Reston West
CoppermineHerndon-Dulles East
Dulles(Not specified)




These names are short, can be used in the names of developments or buildings in the area, and will create a memorable name for the area around the station.
