English meaning - Article name[edit]

What does Nykøbing Sjælland mean in English. Or rather, what does Nykøbing mean?. It is fairly clear that Sjælland means Zealand since the Zealand article starts - Zealand (Danish: Sjælland). If this is the case then the article name should be (translation of Nykøbing) Zealand, if the Wikitravel:Article naming conventions are to be followed -- Huttite 18:42, 18 Jun 2005 (EDT)

Nykøbing is the name of the city, It is called Nykobing Sjaelland because there is three Nykobings. Nykobing probably comes from ny=new and kobing=something about buying, but the name is from around year 1100 and there is no english translation in use. --elgaard 21:12, 18 Jun 2005 (EDT)
