But what would it be called?

It couldn't be simply Edinburgh Airport or Glasgow Airport without starting WWIII. I suggest two adjacent terminal buildings. The eastern one would be called "Edinburgh Airport" and the western one "Glasgow Airport". The airlines would operationally treat the complex as one, but civic honour would be satisfied.

Given the likely site's proximity to Stirling, it will no doubt be named: "The William Wallace International Airport" and be opened by Mel Gibson.
