I like Cut Bank, MT
Starbuck, WA (not Starbucks)
Carrizozo, NM
Socorro, NM
Tum Tum, WA
Tumwater, WA
Coldwater, TN

But, I think the winner, given the poll's condition of being the "coolest" sounding name is Cool, CA.

I chose Minneapolis, but why wasn't Atlanta on the list! It is definitely a major city and it has the largest U.S metro are.
