AUSTIN, Texas - A YU-U-U-GE name is the most popular suggested replacement name for a Texas elementary school named after the top hero of the Confederacy.

Donald J. Trump Elementary was the most popular suggestion with 45 submissions out of 240 received, according to Austin Independent School District officials.

The second-most popular suggestion was 34 submissions to keep the present name. Other popular namesakes included author Harper Lee and artists Russell Lee and Elizabet Ney. Among those also receiving votes were Willie Nelson, Spike Lee and Stevie Ray Vaughn.

The Texas capital's school board voted last month to replace the Confederate general as the school name. It could decide on a new name May 23.
