Why change name of airport, if it ain't broke, why fix it?

I am still scratching my head at the name change for the Honolulu international airport to Daniel K. Inouye International Airport.

If it ain't broke, why fix it? Mainlanders and foreigners will never be able to pronounce Inouye, plus it  will constantly be misspelled. It makes more sense to say I'm going to Honolulu international, than Daniel K. Inouye airport. Will luggage tags say Inouye or Honolulu?

How did this happen without a public ballot? At what cost is a name change,I am sure it is in the millions?

I have the perfect compromise, name the rail after him. Inouye was a staunch supporter and one of  the main reasons Honolulu rail was born. Rail was his baby, he worked his okole off to make it happen. It just makes more sense to name rail after the late great legend, Daniel K. Inouye.
