Part of its multi-million pound refit, which is seeing a brand new check-in area, security hall, duty free shop, restaurant, coffee shop and private lounge, more than 2,500 took part in the competition. 

Now airport bosses have revealed the top four, where one will be crowned the ultimate winner...

Goosepool – with historical links to the airport, the site was referred to as RAF Goosepool by the locals.

Goosepool was the name of the wet farmland on the outskirts of Middleton St George, home to a gaggle of geese on which the aerodrome was built on.  

McMullen – was a heroic pilot in WW2 who stayed at the controls of his aircraft while his stricken plane was coming down over Darlington.

It is said that he steered the plane until all his crew bailed and he avoided ploughing into the town of Darlington, by crashing into a field. He lost his life in the crash landing.

The Maple Leaf – a nod to the airport’s rich heritage. The airport was the base for the Royal Canadian Airforce during WW2 who remained at the base until 1945, flying Vickers Wellingtons, Halifaxes and Avro Lancasters. The leaf signifies unity, tolerance and peace.

Final Call - bosses said: "No need for an explanation on this one! You'll be sat relaxing and enjoying a drink (or 2), when you hear that tannoy announcement to say your flight is ready to board. Before you know it, you're off on your jolly holidays or that important business trip."

You'll have until midnight on Sunday, February 28 to choose your winner, with the name being announced on March 8.
