The names they are a-changin’

It’s become commonplace for place names to change, often for political reasons. There’s a new plethora of Freedom Squares wherever regimes are overthrown. But while some, like the famous Istanbul/Constantinople name change, have inspired songs, the potential name change of a small pond in a small town in New Hampshire – currently called “Jew Pond” – is going to be put to a public vote.

Perhaps there’s very little to do there?
