I think its generally ccepted that the first person to free climb a route can give it a name. Often if its been an aid route of some significance, the person who's freed it sticks with the original name but not always (Pegasus/Sheffield steel is the firt one to spring to mind since I was outthere the other day, but its not great example since the start of pegasu has yet to be freed). There was a discussion about this on chockstone at some point.
