The Metro Board has approved several name changes to more than half a dozen stations. So is Navy Yard still Navy Yard?

Check out Metro's list below to see the changes, which are approved for the June 2012 map.

Navy Yard becomes Navy Yard-Ballpark.

King Street becomes King St-Old Town.

Waterfront-SEU will drop SEU, because the university no longer exists.

Forest Glen will be shown on the map with the universal "H" symbol to indicate the location of Holy Cross Hospital. Foggy Bottom and Medical

Center will also be shown with "H" symbols reflecting proximity of hospitals.

New York Ave-Florida Ave-Gallaudet U will be renamed "NoMa-Gallaudet U."

"New York Ave" will be shown as a secondary name for one-year to assist customers during the transition.

The new map will include primary and secondary names for stations with longer names, including:

Addison Road
