In Russia there is Novgorod which essentially means "New City", gorod literally means city. As there is Belgorod which I'm guessing they wanted to say "White City". But there is also a shortened ending called "-grad", that was used for places like Leningrad, and Stalingrad, the latter was changed to Volgograd for obvious reasons

I already mentioned those on post #2, also There is Belgrade the capital of Serbia and it means the same thing as Belgorod. Then there is Kaliningrad, Russia, and Ukraine has some too (h=g) Pavlohrad, Novohrad-Volyns'ky, Uzhhorod

In French it can be "ville" but there are other words like "bourg" (which is roughly borough) and others.

Interestingly, in northern France it is more common to find something-ville while in southern France ville-something is more common. That shows the germanic influence in the north and the more latin influence in the south. In english adjectives come before nouns while in French it is more common to put them afterwards, although sometimes they can also be before the noun.

In my region of origin, which is halfway between north and south, both systems exist, so we have both "villefranche" and francheville" situated in the same area.
