Willis Tower? What a stupid name for a grand tower. Sounds like a wimp with small willies.

What you talkin' 'bout, Willis? —69.156.13.88 (talk) 08:16, 17 July 2009 (UTC)

Who cares? It's not like they're going to have NAME ENFORCEMENT POLICE roming about, making sure you call it the "Willis Tower". To me it always has been and always will be the Sears Tower, and I will continue to call it by that name. 71.120.114.83 (talk) 17:27, 17 July 2009 (UTC)

Here, here. Sears Tower is a better sounding name with a long history of ingrained use, and I'll continue to use it for my part. That said, I don't necessarily have anything against the property owner or the new tenants, and they're surely free to call their own building whatever they choose. The public, however, chooses its own parlance, and I've seen no indication that they even intend to attempt controlling that. 209.30.170.213 (talk) 20:51, 17 July 2009 (UTC)
