    Please post all your suggested city names here.

    Feel free to post them in english, but I would like them translated to chinese.

    My suggestions -
    Wisdom Harbour
    Bay of Victory

    Those were out of the top of my head, I'm sure you can find better ones.

    And who had a link to a chinese dictionary?

    I've heard that the Firaxians have renamed their capitol in honor of Sid Meier. Perhaps we should consider the same (or similar) and name our city Thunder Falls.

    We could even adopt a slew of names for the various CivFanatic Moderators and members.

    Thunder Falls
    Chieftess Creek
    Athenae
    etc...
    and, in honor of our founding President, Doughnutopia ;)

    We'll use GBM's suggestion for the moment - We can rename later.

    Wisdom Harbour it is..

    I dont think we should name cities after mods who do not participate in this game. ThunderFalls sounds nice!

    Id like to see a chinese version of wisdom harbor if possible.

    Edit: @GBM- I had the dictionary: http://zhongwen.com/

    "Wisdom Harbor" would be "Zhi Gang" or "Zhi Gangkou"

    We could have a city in the hills called mountain of god or god's mountain (I don't know Chinese grammar!)

    I like Zhi Gang. It has fewer syllables, and sounds funny.

    Gold Streams = jin chuän

    lets get something off Tolkien:

    Misty mountains = Méngméng Shän
    White mountains = Bái Shan

    I'm only up to the start of The Two Towers, so I dont know many other good names.

    The phoenetics are all stuffed up, but I doubt you are worried.

    Thats good.

    Victory Bay = Shénglì Waan (waan is actually 'w', 'a' with a "-" on top, then 'n', but I cant find 'a' with - in the character map.

    Plains of Enlightenment = Qishì Píngyuáng (Inspiration Plain)
    Civilization Insomniac = Wènmíng Shimiánbìng (civilization insomnia)

    Forgive me, but what does insomnia / insomniac mean?

    I think one city should be named for or by each president.

    A civilization insomniac is a person who skips sleeping to play civ3.
