OTOH, what I like to do is to rename cities I conquer to my countries'
names, so -for example- when I conquer London, it becomes Laredo, Zagreb
becomes Reus, Kaapstad becomes Valdecantazo del Pedregal, etcetera.

I'd love to see an option in Freeciv that, when set, automatically
renames a conquered city to a name of your country list. This implies an
additional feature: Freeciv should save the older name(s) of the city,
so, should it be reconquered, it would get its older name back.

Anistos anésti (hope I got the spelling right)
