Louisville. How can you not like a city name that is pronounced 1,000 different ways haha.

I also like San Francisco too. Just a cool sounding name for a city.

chicago, dallas, and detroit are all very strong sounding names and charlotte is a very nice elegant name

but ATLANTA sounds so larger-than-life and epic like something out of greek mythology, and it looks even cooler than it sounds with it being so symmetrical with the three "A"s.

boston and houston are two names i've always disliked. they just sound so dull and plain and look even more boring

Baltimore is sweet. Named for an Irish Lord.

Philadelphia is also sweet--named for an old city in the Book of Revelations. Also amusingly inaccurate. Brotherly Love, my ass.

Cincinnati is porbably sweetest of all-- named for a Roman military leader.

I've always felt that Chicago's name suited it.

Kansas City, Missouri, aka...."KC". "KCMO".

You have to admit, it's quite unique and interesting .

Nah, too touristy... you gotta put that accent in it.

Nu' Wawlinz

I like how the people say a cities name one way, but the locals of the city say it another.

New Orleans -> N'Wawlins (never nawlins)/ N'waw-lee-ans
Miami -> me-amee/ my-amee
Baltimore -> Baltmore
Boston -> Bahsten
Houston -> Hewstin
