I was amused to discover that, according to Glover Moore, in or about 1821 Missouri considered naming its state capital "Missouriopolis." Out-of-state reviews were not good, with one restrictionist newspaper suggesting "Slave-opolis" or "Black-opolis" instead. I assume that the idea was dropped for other reasons.
