As Phil answered, where is it located? Spain, Formosa, Ghana, the US? Look at the map. Your city's name has to fit in.
Cities are named after
People - Washington, Jonestown, Kingsville, New York
Physical features- Trois Rivieres (Three Rivers) Niagara Falls, Iron Mountain
Places back home: London, Paris
Desire for a fresh start - Philadelphia (brotherly love), Salem (peace)
I hope this helps you think through what you want the name to say.

Honestly this is one of the stupidest questions I've seen in days. ALL city names are 'made up' by someone. Why can't you do the same for your own city? - which by the way you have told us NOTHING AT ALL about.

It's YOUR story so you need to invent it yourself.
