Island naming competition

#1
So the game features islands cities on a flooded planet earth

I think I'll make these island cities the locations of current mountains on the real planet earth.

The player is probably to start in Scotland (I'm not very imaginative), but eventually there might be multiple start locations.

To enter the competition give me:
1) the name and location of a mountain, and it's height in meters
2) The name of the Forgotten Stores island city named after the mountain (or the city could just have the mountain's name)
3) The raw materials you think would be found at that island, based on the resources of the real world, and why

so for example

"Cairn Toul" in Scotland 1291m tall. "The red city" because of the original Gaelic name of the Carngorms mountain range meaning the "red hills" sheep, coal mine, iron mine, oak forest, because these commodities are present in Scotland, and they'll be needed for the player when they first start the game to make their first boat and start exploring.

Alternatively "Nevis-port" based on Scotland's Ben nevis, could be the city in that region.

The reward will be that anyone with a city name suggestion in the game will will be contacted to provide some lore and concepts for the city, have their name in the acknowledgements of the game, and receive a a password to the very first live build of FS, when it is ready.

Is the Height from in game sea level or real Sea level?
Is it possible to have water above the water line?
I'd say lake Titikaka (3812m) island would be cool then. Cities would be La Pass to the south east and Chuliaka to the east (Real cities next to the lake).


Other Suggestion:

Island Praviršulis (Pravirshulis) a relatively swampy island being only 50 to 150m above ingame sea level. Containing Iron ore and Pine, Birch and Swamp Pine forests and since its a swamp-ish it also has Peat (If that doesn't exists as fuel then make it Coal).
The settlement should be called Sargeliai (I don't know how to write it phonetically in English)
There is always a weak-spot if you search Hard enough.

If you fire enough AP at that shield, at some point you're going to come through.

There is no "best" I wouldn't even say there is anything universally good, Good is subjective, I find everything bad even if it's in theory good against this or that.

Mountain name: Mount Royal, located in south-east Canada
Height: 233m

City name: Montreal
Resources: 
- fur, because historically the city was created for beaver fur trade
- arable land
- wood, the city is surrounded by forests
- fresh water
- fish, from fresh water
- electricity, there are numerous large rivers in the province so hydroelectricity production is very high

Großer Arber (1456m), located in south-east bavaria
City: Bodenmais (but could be anything, there isn't really a large city nearby)
Resources (don't know the valid resources, so here is a expanded list):
- Wood, lots of it
- freshwater from the two lakes
- silver mines
- vitriol mines
- glass (blowing)
- could also be a fortress location because the Luftwaffe has a large radar installation on the mountain aswell a large AA-Flak emplacement

If you take the distance from the mountain top to Bodenmais (about 7 km)and draw a circle, there are also:
- iron ore mines
- more glass
- some cows
- fresh water pearl mussels

If individual mountains are settlements, what about mountain ranges (e.g. the alpes) ? Are they existent and if so, settled or just obstacles and if so, why?
Some may know me as the most boring, consistent person on the planet, others as the most irritating erratic.
If you can't make sense of my sentence structuring, don't worry. Me neither. Language and I are at odds sometimes.
