I just want to compile all the old names of cities. Only those with the old names after the birth of civil aviation will be listed here. Therefore Istanbul (Constantinople), Tokyo (Edo) will not be included.

Listing will be like this:

New name - Old name - IATA code - (old or new referring to where the code
was taken from). Here is the list and I need more data if you can think some more:
