- Samrong Tai town (เทศบาลเมืองสำโรงใต้), Phra Pradaeng district, Samut Prakan province renamed to Pu Chao Saming Phrai (เทศบาลเมืองปู่เจ้าสมิงพราย). Reason given is the fact that the subdistrict Samrong Tai is only one of five subdistricts covered by the municipality, so to create more unity within the municipality a new name fitting for the whole area was selected. Pu Chao Saming Phrai was the name of the first fort at the mouth of the Chao Phraya river. The name change was already approved by the board responsible for name changes in its meeting on August 10.
- Sattahip subdistrict municipality (เทศบาลตำบลสัตหีบ), Sattahip district, Chonburi province renamed to Khet Udom Sak (เทศบาลตำบลเขตรอุดมศักดิ์). It was the name originally planned when the TAO Sattahip was upgraded (except now a silent ร was added), but at that time it was found that the wasn't possible because they lacked permission by the grandson of Prince of Chumphon to use the name. Apparently it was now granted.
- TAO Song Hong (องค์การบริหารส่วนตำบลสองห้อง), Mueang Nong Khai district, Nong Khai to be renamed to Pho Sawang (องค์การบริหารส่วนตำบลโพนสว่าง) in accordance to the rename of the subdistrict earlier this year.
- TAO Suak (องค์การบริหารส่วนตำบลสวก), Mueang Nan district, Nan to be renamed to Bo Suak (องค์การบริหารส่วนตำบลบ่อสวก) in accordance to the rename of the subdistrict earlier this year.
