I think you're right that in the myths he is said to hold the heavens, but there is a famous statue depicting him holding the earth. so it doesn't seem like a stretch. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/8/8c/MAN_Atlante_fronte_1040572.JPG/220px-MAN_Atlante_fronte_1040572.JPG

Actually, in that specific statue, those are the heavens: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Farnese_Atlas. There are others (like this: http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/Mzc1WDUwMA==/z/0FUAAOxylpNTVh~z/$_3.JPG?set_id=2) where he is indeed carrying the Earth, but that doesn't make the answer right: Atlas was not "said to carry the Earth on his shoulders", he was said to carry the heavens (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atlas_(mythology)#Punishment) and has a few statues where he is misrepresented as carrying the Earth instead.

He was punished by Zeus for teaming up with Kronos in the God-Titan war, before there were four titans who held up the sky, but Zeus made it come in one point and made Atlas hold the sky forever.

Consider accepting -gorod for the Russian suffix, as in Nizhniy Novgorod. Gorod means city.

And burg really means castle/fortress, not city (which is Stadt), so the equivalence there doesn't work.
