Cairo! Nice name. Manila, sounds like Ice Cream, All Sao Paulo is, translated into English is St. Paul, Tokyo is pretty cool, Like Beijing also, has a nice ring too it Shanghai and New York are ok, Seoul reminds me of it

Mumbai is a Hideous name, I like it's old name ( Bombay) much better. Jakarta is ugly, doesn't really roll off the tongue that well, Delhi remains me of a Subway Sandwich, or some lunch mwar6 you have

Seoul sounds boring in English but it is cool in French: say-ool.

But Paris sounds better in English than French IMO.

Remove Seoul and New York and replace them with Tegucigalpa and Antananarivo.
