Naples gets its name from Neá polis, which is Greek for "New City", the default city name in Simcity 2000 if you don't bother to type a name

@fraggle Good old Νεάπολις! I find it hilarious that they were just like, "cool, how about New City? Good enough." Cf. also Cartagena, Spain, which the Romans called Nova Carthago ("new Carthage").
