The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors is recommending the names for eight stations. There are no surprises, with the names showing the area they serve. They include: Tysons-McLean, Tysons Central, Reston Town Center and Herndon-Dulles East.

The names must eventually be approved by the Washington Metro Transit Authority board of directors. In all there will be a total of 11 stations, with three outside Fairfax County.
