When airport names come to mind, they are typically associated with former American presidents, heads of state and sometimes notable local figures. That's to say, they're a little stiff.

Enter an airport named after the Prince of Darkness himself, Ozzy Osbourne.

“The message that would carry is instantly international, confident, powerful, unforgettable and says ‘Hey World, we are proud of our own," Jim Simpson of Big Bear Music told the paper. “Ozzy might not always have been a paragon of virtue, but he is a genuine flesh and blood Brummie.”

“It’s an interesting idea and I’ve got an open mind," city Councillor Philip Parkin said to the paper. “We need to be making the most of the talent we have got and did have in this city.”

The UK also made airport headlines back in September when a proposal for a floating airport in the Thames estuary was revealed.
