Naming location history

“We shall build a new city here, and call it... Alexandria.”
“Again?”
“What?”
“Well, I mean you called the last three Alexandria.”
“So?”
“The royal mapmakers are asking if you could maybe differentiate a bit more.”
“Like what?”
“... West Alexandria maybe?”
“Are you implying I’ll never get further west than this?”
No! No, absolutely not!”
“So what do you suggest I do when we get to the coast then?”
“... Alexandria-On-Sea?”
“Get out.”

Dude. Seriously. Help a mapmaker out.
