Name for New SCUCISD Elementary School Up for Vote in December

A three-member committee charged with overseeing the naming of the Schertz-Cibolo-Universal City Independent school District's $34 million new elementary school, which will open next year and be located at FM1103 and Green Valley Road, has a list of 16 choices to consider. 

Potential namesakes for the school include titling it after former Texas governor Ann Richards; former Schertz mayor Hal Baldwin; former district educators Marion Dolford, Mary Pevoto, Rhea Haxton, Ruth Tienor, and Mike Jinks, former Steele High School football coach.
Another option would be naming the school after its location, which would be in line with a new district policy. Those location-based name choices include Cibolo Valley and Comanche. 
Voting on the name will take place at the December 18, 2014 board meeting. Between now and then, the board invites public comment on the issue at their website, on the meeting agenda sections for the November 20 and December 18 agendas. 
What do you think the new name should be, and do you think the name of a school matters in the long run? We'd love to hear your opinion!
