    We plan to build many new cities, and new cities need new names. I'm struggling to come up with new ones.

    Please make some suggestions - anything you like! Otherwise I shall pick names from the books I'm currently reading (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and Trowel and Error, by Alan Titchmarsh:D)

    I still like the welsh names I proposed ages ago...

    *Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochnant
    *Llangammarch Wells
    *Llanfairpwllgwyngyll
    +Beddgelert
    Blaenau Ffestiniog
    Morfa Nefyn
    Pontypool
    Deeside
    Colwyn Bay
    Connah's Quay
    Tal-y-bont
    Waunarlwydd

    * Apart from the L-ones (a bit too long) they sound really good to me.

    Fellow Welshies, let us impose those names on the non-Welshies!

    I see most people has had a city named after them, and wonder if I could have a city named after my hometown?
    That'd be: Trollhättan (allright to spell trollhattan)
    I have some other names for Scandinavia, if we're going to follow the theme with scandinavian names in Scandinavia:
    Visby (Trading center on the island Gotland)
    Miklagård (Viking name for Konstantinopel or Istanbul)
    Reric
    Hedeby
    Ribe
    Skiringsal

    Unfortunately, I'm a terrible at naming things. I always use the defaults when it comes to playing Civ...

    How about 'New Regia Civitas'?

    Dell19, how nice to hear from you!

    Funxus gets his choice: Trollhattan for ...
    May we name Janus to Nautilus ?
    I'm happy with Vikingsnomore, also Addict.Town.

    Forest Isle: let's rename this to something more unique. It will help when searching for plans (New Regia Civitas would drive me crazy!). How about, Lone Woods for example? Or Lone Fir? Lone Maple? Lone Oak?

    Sorry, I'm not much help when it comes to city names.

    You can see why: ;)

    Our Duke is trying to show us that he has more Engineers than he has cities. Similar situation to NUF in 1660AD, Engineers, but not farmland, just starting on the swamps.

    Actually, it is very clear to me. I lose track of my cities when I try to have them named otherwise. I start with A01, A02, etc, then when the geography makes a clean break (narrows or new land mass) B01, B02, etc...

    Don't try to read too much into it Garynemo. ;) But, yes, at that point (1620AD) I had 174 engineers and about 140 cities. But, not the point I was trying to make. :)

    1620AD with 140 cities??? I hope you weren't playing deity, otherwise we're doing really bad! :lol:

    I have some suggestions for naming cities on islands, I'm quite obsessed with little islands in the middle of the ocean (in real life not in civ ;) ) So I have a few suggestions:
    Bouvet
    Norfolk
    Pitcairn
    Tonga
    Puka-Puka
    Suwarrow
    If you need more I can give you more. :)

    Yep. Deity. I don't play anything else (except for GOTM games). It's my slowly progressing HOF game.
