The other name changes have been to the "Executive Committee of the National Assembly for Wales / Welsh Assembly Government / Welsh Government", rather than to the Assembly / Parliament itself.
I know there are several who still think of the MkIII service to Cardiff as the "WAG Express"
I note that the elected members firstly had AM (Assembly Member) after their name(s) and that it has now been changed to MS (Member of Senedd).
I thought that the “WAG Express” was for the wives & girlfriends of footballers! Of course it was also named ‘Y Gerallt Gymro’ meaning ‘Gerald of Wales’ - hence why some people call it Gerald. Trouble is that most people have never heard of Gerald let alone would know him by his Welsh name of Gerallt. (He was born in Manorbier Castle in the 1100’s and travelled extensively).
