: Some South African city names:

: Cape Town: The Mother City
: Johannesburg: Joeys / Joburg
: Pretoria: The Jacaranda City
: Port Elizabeth: The Friendly City
: Plettenburg Bay: Plett
: Durban: Durbs

For Chicagoans we know it as:
1)The windy city
2)Chi-Town
3)Chi-gil
4)Da Town
4)Chicagoland

I believe the name is native-american in origin and it means onions.
