Big Ben is now called Elizabeth Tower

The Brits are really doing this. I heard about the plans but thought it was a joke. Now it is official. London's Big Ben will be renamed to Elizabeth Tower to celebrate Queen Elizabeth's 60 years on the throne.

I was just last weekend in London. It is on of my favorite cities. I have seen Big Ben as well of course. You cannot miss it when exploring the city. Soon though you will have to call Big Ben Elizabeth tower.

London already celebrated the Queen's Diamond Jubilee earlier this month with a four day celebration. Wasn't that enough? I always liked the somewhat quirky name Big Ben for the clock tower. I actually do not think Elizabeth Tower will stick.
