Chengdu (成都市)

“Chengdu is the original city name which dates back to its founding over 2000 years ago, and it is the only major city in China to have remained in the same location with the same name after more than 2000 years. According to the Song dynasty, geographical work Tai Ping Huan Yu Ji, the 9th king of the state of Shu, Kaiming IX, was said to have named the city Chengdu. In this account, he was inspired by King Tai of Zhou’s statement that a settlement needed “one year to become a settlement; two years to become a town; three years to become a capital.” Following this, the king named the new city Cheng Du: literally, “become the capital”. There are, however, several versions of why the capital was moved to Chengdu, and more recent theories of the name’s origin point to it stemming from, or referring to, earlier non-Han inhabitants and/or their languages.”
