The area of Bain Al Jessrain in Abu Dhabi - where you'll find the Fairmont Bab Al Bahr and Shangri-La Hotel Qaryat Al Beri - has a new name.
The part of Abu Dhabi stretches from the banks of Khor Al Maqta inland along the Al Maqta Channel to where the Ibis Abu Dhabi Gate stands.
It will now be valled Rabdan, named after an Arabian Horse, owned by HH Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE.
The type of horse is considered part of the UAE’s heritage and the late Sheikh Zayed bin Khalifa Al Nahyan owned the breed.
In another change, the island of Ras Ghurab, which lies further into the Arabian Gulf than Saadiyat Island, has been renamed Al Alya.
The name is given to someone who has high standing in society or is honourable, and also meas the highest point of a spear or sword.
