(CNN) - Will passengers say they're flying to "Bill and Hill" or "Clinton National"?
The Little Rock Municipal Airport Commission announced a unanimous vote Tuesday to rename Little Rock National Airport after the state's (and country's) famous former first couple.

"Bill and Hillary Clinton not only devoted years of service to Arkansas, but have served the nation as a two-term President, and as First Lady, U.S. Senator, and Secretary of State – that's a legacy of which all Arkansans can be proud," Jim Dailey, the commission's chairman, said in a statement on the airport's website.
The commission also pointed to the Clinton Presidential Center, home to the William J. Clinton Presidential Library and Museum, as a reason for changing the name, describing it the state's main attraction for out-of-state visitors.
A number of other airports have been named after U.S. presidents, including John F. Kennedy, Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan and George Bush. But this marks a first that a first lady's name is included in the title, although Dulles International Airport outside of Washington, D.C. was named after former Secretary of State John Foster Dulles.
According to the statement, the airport will begin using the name in signage and branding in the coming months.
