Interestingly, PANYNJ or its predecessor took care to change the airport code to align with the new name both for Kennedy and LaGuardia. Of course they have not done so for Newark, so it remains EWR and ATC folks can still call it "Sewer" privatelyLa Guardia started out as North Beach Airport, then when commercial flights started at that expanded location it became New York Municipal Airport.
Before being renamed Kennedy International, it was officially New York International Airport at Idlewild, IIRC….
