It's so funny that Superman's city is called Metropolis. Real set of naming geniuses came up with that one.

I wonder if Metropolis was named that from the beginning or if it went through a number of name changes as it grew big

Like, back when it first started I bet it was called 'village' and then 'town'

It probably had a name of its own that nobody liked very much, and eventually residents were so fond of instead referring to the area and themselves as "Metropolitan" (as many real cities choose to name their various services) that they decided to lean into it.

@fluffy a bit like Shaun the sheep, where the city is named big city.
