Should everything named in honor of people who were slave owners be renamed?

Very few people today would insist that slavery should be permitted and no one could seriously suggest that the issue should be revisited. However, we now see some movement to remove monuments which honor the memory of men who are well known historical figures and who, aside from their historical renown, were slave owners. High schools named in honor of Confederate generals have been renamed and monuments have been removed by vandals as well as by government institutions.

Should this trend be abolished? If it is justified, should all schools, monuments, counties, towns, etc. named in honor of people who owned slaves be renamed?
