This list is pretty extensive. I think therevarebsome goodmideas and some bad ones in it (I will not name any), but I think that there's one bit we need to clarify. Are we looking for something thatbsound plausible to a point or are we going fo something completlynout of this world?
In other words are we looking for something that sound like Metropolis (a name that always sounded wrong to me) or we want something more in the vein of Keystone City.

In my writings, Whenever I have to think up a city name- Instead of relying on my imagination, I refer to available...but forgotten names.

Old Biblical cities...Or Roman or Babylonian cities

To make the city sound modern...add "New" or "Port" Here is a few examples

Byblos
Antioch
Ephesus
Ekron
Sidon
Volterra

Now if you really want to reach deep....Study the history of the city and how it was destroyed and now you've got yourself some hidden foreshadowing. My 2 cents

You came up with a great idea DKC. Combine two words you mentioned and you get New Port. It could have risen from the ashes of a nuclear war. A huge, modern, and cosmopolitan city. The center of trade and commerce. It can have a spaceport as well as a sea and airport. It's short, sweet and simple. And, it has a great beat and it's easy to dance to.

New Port

Not to be a party pooper, but New Port sound incredibly bland to me. It's not a bad name, by all means, just very generic and uninteresting. Except for a casual reference to some Mangas (Dominion Tank Police if I remember right), I just don't see the appeal of it.

I don't want to mention any names - but it would seem as though someone has pooped on my party. On the dance floor, no less

Well there's a SuperGirl; why not a SuperCity?


Plus, back in the 60's, there was an actual kid's playset called Super City. So, we would already have the merchandise department going for us. hehe

New Mania! I swear as hard as I'm trying to come up with a great name, I should win a free trip to Las Vegas. But, because I live there already, never mind.

I still think 'Cape Hope' is better than any of those. And since (if I'm reading it correctly), you said folks could still add one name to the list that had already been suggested previously in the thread, that's the one I want to add.

Uhm, d'oh, I had kind of a blank moment and voted even though I'm propably not going to write anything in the SWMU, so if the non-writers aren't supposed to vote, subtract one from Skyline. (I just had to...)

It's good to see that so many have voted already. Keep those votes coming...the race is still very close. We shall soon know the name of our city...a small, but rather important step.

Keep voting guys. Even if you don't want to write(and i strongly suggest everyone give it a try), where do you want your stories to take place.
