Derry vs Londonderry being one. Its interesting how different publications have different style guide rules to handle it as best as possible. I can't remember which it was, but one had that it would always be called Londonderry first, the Derry for the rest of the article/piece.

I just noticed that BBC Weather plays safe and goes for "Derry-Londonderry" - I would imagine even that would anger people due to the ordering!
