Under "Cities, Towns & Places" on citypopulation.de and using the 2020 census figures, we also have Anaheim (347,015), Arlington VA (239,643), Arlington TX (394,218), and Aurora CO (386,241).

Generally I use the population figures for urban agglomerations and metropolitan areas, where they still have a significant population density. All of the cities you mention are cities which are a part of larger urban agglomerations; Anaheim is a part of Los Angeles, Arlington(TX) is a part of Dallas, Arlington(VA) is a part of Washington D.C., and Aurora is a part of Denver. That is why I haven't used them here. I'll change the caveats so this is more clear.
