It's an amazingly difficult question (34% now) and it even is a real name and in the top5 (if not top3) of them charts.

And with "real" I mean it's been around for a while and not something that was reinvented as a name in recent years.

In fact, that is the problem with that question (19% now... and the second least-guessed is at 45%). It seems to ask for a capital that has become a first name, which is not the case of Sofia.

Is the D in Djibouti really silent? I allways pronounced at as an affricate, with a strong D! at the begining, not as a plain J. But I'm no native speaker...

It's not nitpicking ...

One could say it's silent in English, but not in French ...

I agree. The 'j' in English sounds like it start with a d, in Dutch we would write dj because we pronounce the 'j' like a 'y' in English. So if the pronounciation starts with a d-like sound, is it really silent? Or is the 'j' in Djibouti pronounced like a 'y'? It's dubious...

Still, 90% got Tallinn but only 66% got Helsinki (or so are the figures atm).

Also, that's three clues for Helsinki. Giving several cities helps... I would say Kauniainen would be sufficient, as it clearly looks Finnish.

Maybe you should add a part of the clue saying it is in eastern Europe so there is no confusion, as that would limit the answer down to one. Someone would be taking it a little too far to accept Athens for Athena.
