As a side-note, when we looked into this for Wikipedia, it became apparent
that the Act of the Northern Ireland Parliament was worded very carefully to
prohibit Londonderry District Council from being able to change the name of
the City of Londonderry; yet allowing boroughs an automatic name-change of
the chartered borough name!
This doesn't generalise to the rest of the UK, where there are no city
charters in effect issued before 1974 (aside from the City of London).
