Why doesn't anyone rename their city to a name like...

...Metropolis, Gotham City, Central City, or Coast City?

I think it'll be cool to live in Metropolis! :)

metropolis

1. A major city, especially the chief city of a country or region: Chicago, the metropolis of the Midwest.
2. A city or an urban area regarded as the center of a specific activity: a great cultural metropolis.

so wouldn't that be like calling a city, City?

"welcome to the metropolis known as...Metropolis!"

ok, the word has lost *all* meaning to me...

Where I used to live, they changed the name of the city from East Detroit to Eastpointe. (which is actually WEST of Grosse Pointe)
