Call it "Liaoning"

An official state media source reports that China will name its first aircraft “Liaoning” after the province that contains Dalian Naval Shipyard, where it has been refitted.An authorized government portal site, China Internet Information Center ( is published under the auspices of the State Council Information Office and the China International Publishing Group (CIPG) in Beijing.


The reference is to a province in China where the ship was outfitted. Perhaps not coincidentally, one of the characters in the name  遼寧 can be read as "peace."
