i dont agree with the first two since saylac is not even part of awdal region now but of salal region while berbera is the main city and capital of the saaxil region

tbh, what other city, town or village in saaxil is as important as berbera?

Awdal waa gobol ee magaalo maaha.
Saaxil sidoo kale waa gobol.

I'm not talking about gobols iyo waaxaa sxb.Just alternative names for these cities
Another one though not strictly a Somali city is:

Harar aka Adari

I know Bender Qaasim was changed to Boosaaso by Siad Barre's to Somalianize it.
