      “Townsville” is not average and ordinary — it is mocking, like Calvin Trillin’s stereotyped Continental restaurant, the Maison de la Casa House. In your categories, I’d think “sarcastic” would be more appropriate.

    2. Another breakdown could be names from your list which actually exist in the real world; for example Metropolis, which is in far southern Illinois and I’ve read does try to get some tourist interest from the Superman connection. I haven’t visited there yet.
      Another city name, which is not on your list but which relates to the other comment, about “Townsville” – Hometown, Illinois, a near suburb of Chicago. Years ago there was a news story from there, and the reporter didn’t seem to believe this was the place’s correct name. I checked my map and assured the TV station that it was indeed correct. I don’t know why it has this name.
