These exceptional qualities of the former U.S. president haven’t gone unnoticed and he’s constantly being rewarded with something very priceless; his name and legacy being immortalized.

Several landmarks, facilities and even animal species, just to mention a few have been named or renamed in his honor with several others also under consideration.
