Not that I know of. My local airport FRA doesn’t really give names, just something similar like:
-“Startbahn Nord-West” meaning runway in the direction of Northwest.
-“Neue Landebahn” meaning new runway. This name was given to it after the airport extension.

And the RWY 25C is called “Centerbahn” ;)

Same thing at CDG, no " real " names. Just ’ Piste Nord ’ and ’ Piste Sud ’ (= North RWYs and South RWYs)

Piste Nord = North Runway = RWY09L/R & RWY27L/R.

Piste Sud = South Runways = RWY08L/R & RWY26L/R.



At LBA we have “the runway”. We only have one.

At haneda, they call the runways letters.

I named runways at LGA based on my spotting preferences. Not official of course but if they count…
