  2. The name of this city itself
    南京 Nanjing = "Southern 南" + "Capital 京"

    while
    北京 Beijing = "Northern 北" + "Capital 京".

    It is funny that the ideograms of the capital of Japan
    東京 Tokyo (read Dongjing by the Chinese) = "Eastern 東" + "Capital 京"

    Still there is not a "Western+Capital" hehehe!

  4. Amsterdam it is already 阿姆斯特丹
    Literally
    阿 = A
    姆 = Farm
    斯 = Sri Lanka
    特 = Special
    丹 = Red

    Instead, in Japanese
    Amsterdam is アムステルダム
    ア = A
    ム = Mu
    ス = Su
    テ = Te
    ル = Ru
    ダ = Da
    ム = Mu
