Look at the dates on the comments and you'll see that dwo commented before Quizmaster fixed the error. Maybe you should look more closely before chastising.

Almost missed the French-speaking city. Was sure it'd be down in Hispaniola, or maybe Louisiana. Took me way too long to think about Canada.

Sure, since every single time Austria hosted the summer Olympics, it was in a city that started with the letter 'I'

ok, so it took me a while to get Innsbruck, and that with a shirt I have with 'no kangaroos in Austria', which most people need to read twice to get because they read Australia (as I did)...which I bought in Innsbruck....doh (because I spent time trying to think what Australian city starts with an I, and then trying to think of Austrian cities apart from Vienna)

Naples doesn't mean "new city". Neither does Napoli, although the original Greek name, Neapolis, does. I'm crap at geography anyway, but would easily have got Naples if the question had been put differently.

Given that Naples is just a shortened form of Neapolis I'd say the clue is still accurate

Really a city founded by the greek that means new city, even if you didnt know what new was in greek and you only knew polis, you would have got it. When it was founded the name it was given meant new city.

All names get butchered along the even if other languages do not get involved (just look at old maps, a lot of names only has a few the same letters, for instance Katwijk and Catwyck the (historically fishermen's) village I lived the first town years of my life. If you pronounce it it remains sort of the same, but really only three letters stayed put.. but that is what happens to places that have been around for centuries. (It was already around in the time of caligula, 40 ad, and it was the endpoint of some journey of his and he build a tower there. Not that anyone cares, but I find it interesting :) )
