If that's your reasoning then I think Pat Brown International would be more appropriate. He did a hell of a lot more for San Francisco and the State than Milk.

Milk was a figure of national and even international prominence, which is more than can be said for Norman Mineta.

If someone from his lineage wants to donate a $10 million + to SFO than go ahead a rename it, but there is no reason for tax payers to pay for it.
