How about "Nut Town" after the largest local college's team mascot ostensibly but were they to actually change their name it would work on soooooo many different levels.

If they want to change the name of the city, fine (I don't care and don't live there), but "Flavortown?"  What, does that reflect the number of restaurants with laminated menus with pictures of the food?

How about THE Ohio State Capital?

Pretty sure it would be honor Guy Fireri who is from Columbus. He does a lot of philanthropic work.

How about naming rights? THE Ohio State Capital Town sponsored by Nationwide

I'm in support of it, but only if the three respective branches of local government are renamed Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives.

Most stories of Columbus' evil range from wildly exaggerated to flagrantly fabricated. The oatmeal comic and Ted Talk that helped spawn the controversy are downright pathetic in their cherry picking and massaging of details and translations.

Applying 21st century zeitgeist to anything that happened in the past is a great way to never understand anything, and to have zero ability to input anything of value to discussion 

Columbus was a great man, so long as we understand the definition of great man does not have to include being supremely perfect in every way, and deified, the way so many people insist it should be now 

And relative to his peers,he was a better than average person morally. Like, if I were to pick a sabrespace poster at random, chances are that he'd be a bit worse of a person than Columbus if he had existed then, and certainly would not have accomplished as much

If there's any statue, just convert it to the Home Alone screaming pose.  Problem solved.  "We're named after this guy!"

I knew it was in honor of Fireri, but wasn't sure if he was originally from there, thought he was a Cali guy.
