What do Beverly Cleary, Lisa Simpson, Mark Rothko and former Governor Barbara Roberts have in common? They all have ties to Portland and they’ve all been suggested as names for the new bridge over the Willamette River. TriMet is seeking public input to name the bridge and they say they’ve received over 5,000 suggestions. This is just the first step in a lengthy process to narrow down the list to just a few names that will go to TriMet for the final say.

Have you suggested a name for the new bridge? What is most important to you about the name?
