A Rest Stop on the Jersey Turnpike

Passing by a rest stop on the New Jersey Turnpike - I think that it was the Woodrow Wilson stop, Rena wondered alound how they decide who to name the rest stops after. I wondered in response whether in fact it was an honor, and whether one could refuse. I imagine the following conversation.
"We'd like to name a rest stop after you."

Long pause.

"Gee...thanks. Can you think of something else?"
