Free Database of World City Names

United Nations Code for Trade and Transport Locations maintains a huge list of city names for every country in the world with lots of other meta data like geographic coordinates, names without diacritics, subdivision (province, state, etc). You can simply view the data using their search options, or even better download the data in CSV or MS Access format!  It’s not like you’ll need information like this every single day but potentially at some point in the future you’ll create an e-commerce site or just need to populate a database with more cities and information related to them than you’d ever be able to construct otherwise.
