Psst… it’s spelled “Airplane”
An Elevator is a boxy device used to move people up and down between floors where stairs would be impractical or inconvenient (or, to be honest, where they would require actual effort). A Lift is a kind of shoe. A Pint is merely an undersized Pitcher.
But yeah, we’re not arrogant because we call the game Soccer. That’s not to say we’re not arrogant, but what we call Soccer has nothing to do with it.
Mostly we call the game Soccer so as not to confuse it with Football. On that note, everyone else calls our Football names like “American Football” or “Futbol Norteamericano” or “Rugy for Pansies” etc. We could call it “American Football” but that would be silly, at least from our POV. Hence, Soccer to tell it apart from the sport that mostly only gets played in our country. Similarly, I’ve never met ANYONE in Texas who called Texas Tea “Texas Tea”. We just call it tea.
As for why we call football football, from what I understand, we call it that because the game is descended from the same game Soccer is descended from, so both happened to come up with a common name despite the various changes to the game making the actual use of feet relatively limited in our version of the game.
