* As the name would suggest, Neo Bowser City in ''VideoGame/MarioKart 7'' is one.
** Likewise the [[VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld Valley of Bowser]].
** Taken even further in ''VideoGame/SuperMario3DWorld'' [[spoiler:with the eighth world with huge Ferris wheels and other attractions with Bowser's face emblem plastered on them, a towering neon animatronic Bowser looming over the world and for the fact that the world number is also replaced with Bowser's emblem, earning it the name World Bowser]].

* Non-country example: Roman emperors Creator/GaiusJuliusCaesar and UsefulNotes/{{Augustus}} got their names added to the ''Julian'' Calendar as months (July and August), replacing the previous names (Quintilis and Sextilis respectively).[[note]]Contrary to popular belief, they did ''not'' add new months, thereby "explaining" why September, October, November, and December seem to say "seventh month, eighth month, ninth month, tenth month" when they are months 9, 10, 11, and 12; rather, the Romans changed their New Year from 1 March to 1 January sometime around the beginning of the second century BCE--about 100-150 years before Caesar. The beginning of the civil year--when the term of the consul began--was made 1 January in 153 BCE; this appears to reflect a previous change in the reckoning of New Year's festivities for social and religious purposes at least a generation earlier. Some records indicate that the Romans did at some point have a ten-month calendar, and that January and February were added to the ''end'' of the year to get it to line up better, but all of ''those'' records claim that was the work of the semi-legendary second King of Rome Numa Pompilius in the seventh century BCE.[[/note]] Subsequent Roman emperors tried to do the same, renaming other months after themselves (and sometimes after previous emperors as well), but no other changes lasted beyond their deaths.

As for why the consuls took office in January, there are two theories: (1) It was considered auspicious because the month was named after Janus, the god of transitions and beginnings, or (2) It gave the consuls, whose main job was leading armies in war, two or three months to get used to their new positions before campaign season began in the spring. Some records indicate that the Romans did at some point have a ten-month calendar, and that January and February were added to the ''end'' of the year to get it to line up better, but all of ''those'' records claim that was the work of the semi-legendary second King of Rome Numa Pompilius in the seventh century BCE.[[/note]] Subsequent Roman emperors tried to do the same, renaming other months after themselves (and sometimes after previous emperors as well), but no other changes lasted beyond their deaths.

* Not necessarily a city example, but politicians in the Philippines are disproportionately fond of affixing their names (or failing that, their initials) to public works projects. It is very common to see street flyers or posters announcing things like "Road Renovation c/o Mayor X" or "This bridge is a project of Congressman Y"—often including the grinning faces of the politicians in question. It gets bad enough that several members of Congress are considering filing a bill to rename EDSA, Manila's main highway, after ex-president Cory Aquino, late mother of the current president, Benigno "P-Noy" Aquino III.

** The Senate later had him assassinated and renamed everything back, interestingly there are very few contemporary records of Commodus reign, which suggests not so much conspiracy as [[LetUsNeverSpeakOfThisAgain an urge to wash away bad memories]].

** The Senate later had him assassinated and renamed everything back, interestingly there are very few contemporary records of Commodus reign, which suggests not so much conspiracy as [[LetUsNeverSpeakOfThisAgain an urge to wash away bad memories]]. And no, the word "commode" to refer to a toilet is NOT one of Commodus's legacies.
