According to Wikipedia, Louisville, KY was named after king Louis XVI of France and I think this should also be accepted (I think we can classify it as a major city)

I got slightly confused for the question, "What European Country's capital has the same name as a city in Georgia?" Instead of typing, Greece. I kept on trying to type in Athens. I don't know if this is just me reading the question wrong or if the question just wasn't worded that well.

"What European country is about the same size as Montana?" isn't a reasonable question. Who is going to have the area of Montana, and every country in Europe, memorized? You just type the name of every country in Europe until you get it right.

You have also one Albertville in France (Winterolympics 1992) and two other ones in USA. One oh these has more than 20.000 souls (It's about the size of Paris, Texas). Maybe you could accept it ?

And you have also many "Orleans" 's which could be accepted and for the fun.., a little "Lyon" and 3 tiny american "Toulon" 's

Remember, the clue says Texas, and I haven't been able to find an Albertville, Lyon, Orleans, or Toulon in Texas.
