That's not how Delhi's name is supposed to be pronounced though.

It is meant to be pronounced as such:

Dhillie (pronounciation: Dhill Lee)

Sort of like "Phillie" except instead of the P replace it with a D, obviously. You have to hold an "h" sound after the D and stretch it to say the city's name. If done right, it shouldn't be sounding like deli the sandwich shop at all.

Also while I am at it, this reminds me of another thing that people often do with this city's name is that they call the place "New Delhi". There is no such thing as a city of "New Delhi" because New Delhi is a district within the city of Delhi, not an actual city by itself, just a district or section of the city of Delhi, one of 11 such districts actually. It's simply just "Delhi". They are one in the same. That's all there is to it.

What about the town of Sandwich in Kent in England.

John Montagu the 4th Earl of Sandwich wasan eighteenth-century English aristocrat who ordered his valet to bring him meat tucked between two pieces of bread, and others began to order "the same as Sandwich!"

It is commonly said that Lord Sandwich was fond of this form of food because it allowed him to continue playing cards, particularly cribbage, while eating, without using a fork, and without getting his cards greasy from eating meat with his bare hands.

Sandwich is near to the village of Ham, meaning local sign posts read 'Ham Sandwich'.

I don't much like the sound of any of the choices in the poll. I do like the sound of Barcelona as it sounds like a really tasty form of Salami.

out of the cities on the list I choose Mexico city.
Its a very poetic name, because it is the City of Mexico, in the country of Mexico, named after the native american people who called themselves Mexica.

For historical cities I always though Constantinopolis/Byzantium were the coolest city name ever.
