    Also, not sure how you feel about place names, but if you like them the following towns/cities might work as names;

    Bradford
    Carlisle
    Chester
    Colwyn
    Cranford
    Curran
    Derby
    Derry
    Durham
    Feeny
    Fife
    Holt
    Lincoln
    Lothian
    Milford
    Preston
    Sterling
    Tynan
    Tywyn

    I would be inclined to research a bit about any of place names though, as not all of them are very glamorous!
