Canberrans could one day call the suburb of Gillard home with the former prime minister warming to the idea of leaving behind a slice of the capital in her name.
Speaking to ABC radio on Monday, the country's 27th prime minister laughed at suggestions an ACT suburb may one day be named after her.
"I must admit, I haven't given any thought to it. I guess my reaction to that would be why not? As long as it's a nice suburb," she joked.
Talk of the suburban legacy has gained traction since the death of the former prime minister Gough Whitlam as the capital begins to consider how best to honour a giant of Australian history.
The first female prime minister's distinct surname would not cause the ACT Government's Place Names Committee the kind of headaches associated with some of her predecessors.
Names of former prime ministers like John Gorton and Bob Hawke are confusingly similar to the existing suburbs of Gordon and Hawker.
Malcolm Fraser's potential suburb-naming is particularly prickly, with one suburb and an electoral division already named after the former MP Jim Fraser.
Ms Gillard's reaction is in stark contrast to Sir Robert Menzie's decision to decline having a suburb named after him. He reportedly told his daughter Heather Henderson that "all the good suburbs were already taken".
But the suburb of Gillard is, hopefully, still a long way off.
According to ACT regulations, a suburb cannot be named after a prime minister unless 12 months have passed since their death, which rules out the 53 year-old alongside Fraser, Hawke, Paul Keating, John Howard, Kevin Rudd and Tony Abbott.
Canberra suburbs already named after former prime ministers are Barton, Deakin, Watson, Reid, Fisher, Cook, Hughes, Bruce, Scullin, Lyons, Page, Curtin, Fadden, Forde, Chifley and Holt.
