Ilioupoli originally opened without the Grigoris Lambrakis qualifier, but the Municipality of Ilioupoli had for years requested Attiko Metro (now Elliniko Metro) to name the station after the anti-war activist, who was also a member of the Greek resistance. Elliniko Metro agreed to change the station name to Ilioupoli-Grigoris Lambrakis, which came into effect on 22 May 2015.[4]
