Obama Name Registry

Read these articles about locations throughout the country named after our 44th President.


Barack Obama Elementary School

Maple Heights, OH

This new school was among 3 open in 2012. The names of the schools were chosen by the board after an essay contest. The winner said the names would inspire students they could be anything they put their mind to.


Barack Obama Way

New Albany, IN

Just in time before President Barack Obama’s term came to a close in early 2017, Reas Lane in New Albany, Indiana was officially renamed Barack Obama Way. When completed, the road is planned to ease traffic between two industrial areas of the southern Indiana community, across the Ohio River from Louisville, Kentucky.



We're busy compiling a list of all sites - schools, municipal centers, streets, etc - named after the 44th President of the United States.

Is this your site? We'd love to add more about it! Send us text and pictures to and we'll update your site for you.
