I automatically typed Nagpur as soon as I started, along with Negev, Nagoya, Nanjing, New Delhi and maybe a couple other major N answers for Asia.

Novosibirsk (Новосибирск) means New SiberiaN in Russian. Like New Siberian (City), but without the word City. New Siberia would be Novaya Sibir (Новая Сибирь). I did not find an example on the internet, but you can try it in Google Translate. Just paste there Сибирск (Sibirsk) and you will see that the translation of it is Siberian.

I just became doubtful myself and it seems Samar would be the correct answer. Why this remains unfixed, I do not know.
