What's In A Stadium Name?

Call me old-fashioned, but I like my baseball stadiums named after the team that plays there or, at the very least, the owner or former owner of the team. Today a stadium name isn't just a name; it's a cash cow that team owners regularly milk to enhance the bottom line. No longer can you tell from a stadium's name which team claims it as their home field. (I'm looking at you, Ottawa Senators.)
