World Cities that have changed names.



maxxseoulMaxxseoul on 06/19/2009

WorldCitiesthathavechangednames Photo A number of cities in the world have changed names, or are in the process of doing so.
The capital of South Africa may have it's name changed so it will less reflect it's colonial white past.
The new name being considered is Tshwane after a black tribal leader who ruled long before white colonization.
In India a number of city name changes have taken place, and more will do so in the future.
This is largely in part with India distancing itself from it's former British colonial past.
I'll give you twelve cities worldwide, and I'll try to make it challenging, but not too difficult.
Good Luck.
