At the ComicCon interview, producers said they will address the fact within the season's storyline that they can't/won't have a third storyline about Starling City getting blown up. I imagine the city name change ties in to that. In a "let's move past our tragedies and start with a new beginning and new name".
Humm ... I'm reasonably sure these last two aren't so much "changes" as they are "corrections" to reflect the native language pronunciation ... as opposed to colonial English.
True, but I used those two as examples because they're big, famously-named cities that have changed names. I'm sure there's still a lot of 'murica that thinks there's both a Mumbai and a Bombay without realizing they're the same place, for instance.
