Also, for Lion City, I thought you were going for Shi Cheng city (China's 'Atlantis' underneath Qiandao Lake).
The Big Smoke (no longer smokey) is the city called London but probably only older people would use that name. As it says in the list of 'Nicknames' quizzes, giving cities nicknames seems peculiar to the USA and Brits don't do it, except in a humorous (and usually insulting) way. I think English people would generally choose Sheffield as the steel-producing city answer but I've never heard anyone here refer to it as 'Steel City'. I considered a couple of German cities too.
British cities are completely different from American ones - their classification is all to do with tradition, cultural relevance and importance rather than size, as you'll see if you look at a list.
Anyway, thanks for an interesting quiz.
