I always thought Baltimore was cool. Lord Baltimore sounds like it should be in Harry potter

Dallas is probably the coolest. Also pretty cool are Los Angeles, Baltimore and Philadelphia. Most cities with the word FORT in them are pretty decent too. Although not a major city - you have to admit saying your from Kalamazoo seems pretty cool.

I like Savannah and Lexington - maybe not "major", but good city names.

I was really torn between Los Angeles and Milwaukee.

I imagined what hearing a radio station saying it, i.e., "your listening to KKKK, city-name", and Los Angeles just sounds cooler.

I chose Philadelphia, then San Francisco.

Least cool, probably Jacksonville.

I like city names you can say with their regional accents like N'Awlins and Mee-aami.
