So I'm rewatching the anime and in episode 2 I notice Lady mentioning the name of the city they are in and it doesn't sound like Capulet. Since it sounded a bit weird to my ears, I opened the subbed version and it turns out she was doing business in town of Enamel.

I know Capulet, where Dante lives, is taken from Romeo and Juliet to continue on the Italian theme, so I googled enamel out of curiosity. Basic meaning for enamel is a special type of coating, whether naturally occurring on tooth, or artificial in art and elsewhere, but two things stood out to me - high-temp enamel paint in used on engines, brakes and exhaust, and magnet wire is sometimes referred to as enamel wire and among other things used in motors. Episode 2 is about motorcycle racing.

So... any other names of cities you caught? Any other interesting connections you made? How close do you think Enamel is to Capulet given how it doesn't take long to go from one to the other? If we go by the theme, with Capulet being like New York only with a distinct touch of Italy in some parts, is Enamel perhaps an industrial city? Can you tell I'm bored? XD

Nope. Not even the one for the city they are in.
Fans usually take the name of Dante's city to be Capulet, since he did business for mayor of Capulet and both fit the italian theme. But now that I look at how often he travels to other cities, I have this nagging feeling that it might be just one of many jobs and his own city is still unnamed or we missed it.

In the episode with the gambling demon... "Death Poker" was it?... Morrison mentions that the casino ship is in ownership of Vellolinton.
Considering it sounds similar and knowing how japanese language treats names of foreign cities, not to mention google suggested that one when I searched, I think Vellolinton came from Wellington, which turned out to be a coastal city in New Zealand, among other things famous for being the base of operations for Peter Jackson. It's also very good at making money in tourism, offering a lot to tourists, which is in theme with this Vellolinton, since casino ship is a tourist attraction where ordinary folks can live out their dreams for a night.

The point of your post is?
I said that to make the connection between enamel and the episode it all happens in. Yeah, it's about defeating the demon like always, but this time the demon and everything was connected to racing on motorcycles.
