What’s in a Name?

Names are important. Sometimes names change. Let’s look at the names of some places that have changed. Let’s look at why the names have changed. 

Last year, Cleveland’s baseball team changed names. They were called the Indians. “Indians” is a name for Native Americans. Many Native Americans do not like it. So, the team changed it to something everyone would like. Now the team is named the Cleveland Guardians. Cleveland has statues called guardians that stand on a large bridge. These statues watch over traffic.
