Welcome to the TNMCorps Q&A community!

I came across a Post Office in Los Angeles with several different names, some which included the name of an individual. These names are: 'Ray Charles Post Office,' 'West Adams Post Office,' and 'Los Angeles Post Office.' Is there a specific name I should use, or are any of these names acceptable?

In this case, any of the above mentioned names would be acceptable. 'West Adams Post Office' is the name listed on the USPS website, 'Los Angeles Post Office - Ray Charles Station' is the name posted on the building, and 'Ray Charles Post Office' is the name designated through Public Law 109-25. Since all of these names are official, and have been verified through authoritative sources, any of them can be used.

Occasionally you might run into Post Offices with names that seem official, but may not necessarily match what's listed on the USPS website (especially if they include the name of an individual). To determine if a Post Office is named after someone in public law, do a Google search and include "federal register" as part of the search.

For example, the Google search "ray charles post office los angeles federal register" generated the following result:

H.R. 504 / Public Law 109-25 To designate the facility of the United States Postal Service located at 4960 West Washington Boulevard in Los Angeles, California, as the "Ray Charles Post Office Building". (July 12, 2005; 119 Stat. 368; 1 page)
