I was scrambling naming Chicago suburbs until I hit the right one.

Even most Chicagoans think that the second largest city in our state is Springfield, or at least Rockford.

Yeah, I guessed Rockford first, then Joliet, then I finally got there.

I only guessed Aurora because I have relatives living close to Aurora. I visit them a lot.

I tried Rockford (even though I thought it was well west of that dot) and Joliet before Aurora. Might not have pulled Aurora out without the alphabetical help after getting all the others. I'm just a dumb Hoosier to the east, though.

I'm a dumb Hoosier as well, but i can invade Illinois and just make all the suburbs have the name Chicago. also my friends say i have a southern accent because i say it like 'Chicogo' but my friends say 'Chicago' with the very long and weird sounding a.

I almost always guess Aurora before Chicago on every quiz. Must be because of Wayne's World...

I wouldn't have gotten it except I had all the others and could then think only of suburbs before Baton Rouge alphabetically.

Wikipedia says the 2018 population estimate for Aurora put it under 200,000. Do you have something more current?

Not sure. Being 199,605 though, it's certainly close enough to 200k to be not excluded. That's 2018 too, in 2020 might be over 200k in actuality now. Overall just not worth resetting stats.

I'm not sure what your source is or what year the data is from, but, according to World Population Review, Huntsville is now bigger than Montgomery, making it the second biggest city in Alabama based on 2020 estimates. I'm not suggesting a correction so much as bragging about my home city of many years!

I believe for Alabama I used Cities in Alabama (Wikipedia). Though it's been 2 years since I made it. That article uses census data from 2010 though which is probably where it comes from.

Remarkable how close together Alabama's four largest cities are.

Its 4th largest city is 90% the size of its largest.

I typed Baton Rogue and got nothing, only to reveal it's probably capitalization or the space

Spaces and capitalisation don't matter on JetPunk! The issue is you spelled it Rogue not Rouge :)

"Baton Rogue" sounds like a pornographic French film.

Got all except Aurora. I have spent some time in Aurora on business, but I never would have guessed it is that big.

It's not that big either, it does not even have 200,000 people and considering the demographics in the area, it's very unlikely it will get over this milestone in the near future.

2019 estimates put Huntsville at 200,574. Is there a reason this isn't included?
