Anyone Have An Opinion On The Meridian Hill Vs. Malcolm X Park Name Debate?

DSCN6123

So from time to time when I write about Meridian Hill Park people get a bit upset because they believe the true name is Malcolm X park. But I just noticed walking by the other day that it has Meridian Hill etched into the stone on the border of the park. So is that a recent addition? When did the name change occur? Anyone believe one name is more appropriate than another?
