* In Colorado, US, the Denver metro is home to Commerce City, which isn't such a source of commerce these days, but is still a hub for transportation networks. Further south in Colorado Springs is a district colloquially called "Motor City," because of its high concentration of car dealerships. Even further south is Pueblo, nicknamed "Steel City" because of the enormous steel plant there.

* In Creator/LarryNiven's ''Known Space'' series, some cities have a bit of this. The main city on Jinx (in the Sirius system) appears to be Sirius City, and the name of the Kzinti homeworld in their language translates to "Kzinhome." There are also the worlds Plateau and Canyon, named after their most distinctive features (and only habitable locations; the one for Plateau is actually called Mount Lookitthat, but it ''is'' a plateau, or more properly a mesa). There's also Crashlanding City, capital of We Made It (natives of which planet are called crashlanders).

** Balmora and Sadrith Mora (in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'') are this in-universe, assuming you know Dunmeri (the native language of the region) or Aldmeri (Dunmeri's predecessor language and commonly known by scholars) -- Bal is stone and Mora is forest, so the city of Balmora is a 'stone forest', and Sadrith means mushroom, which may seem strange until you find out Sadrith Mora ('mushroom forest') is the major Vvardenfell city of the Telvanni.. who build their houses out of giant mushrooms they grow and shape. And then, of course, there's the home city of the Dunmer PhysicalGod Vivec, Vivec City.
