"Lutetia" is horrible. And "Edo" sounds like a nickname we use for dudes called "Edmon".

Sydney was first titled New Albion, btw.

Fort Rouillé = Rusty Fort


Actually, the fort was named for a Frenchman named Rouillé.

Gastown makes me think of a small town somewhere in the Midwest where time stood still, with only a motel and gas station in sight.
