:Hi. "Sanctiacobi" has no source and will eventually be moved. It was probably somebody's guess.
:The grammar of the names is that one either uses the nominative case ("Sanctus Iacobus, Sancta Crux") or one uses the genitive with a word such as "Urbs" ("Urbs Sancti Francisci, Urbs Sanctae Mariae").
:But our primary rule is to look for sources. You don't have to do all the work, but you should do as much as you can, otherwise you are creating work for other people, which good Wikipedians don't want to do! Remember:
:Latin is a real language, currently used, and often used in the recent past. A country with a large Catholic population has a lot of dioceses, and every diocese has a Latin name. Start there. [http://www.catholic-hierarchy.org/country/dph.html This is a list of Philippine dioceses.] When you open each page, you see the Latin name of the diocese in italics. So, if your city is or was a cathedral city, it will be here, and you can copy and paste the italics when you cite this source in a footnote. This is how you cite it. The four-letter abbreviation is from the end of the URL; the Latin name is from those italics. I'm taking the first saint's name in that list as example:
:* <nowiki>{{CathHierDiocese|scrl|Dioecesis Sancti Caroli Borromeo}}</nowiki>
:gives you
:* {{CathHierDiocese|scrl|Dioecesis Sancti Caroli Borromeo}}}}
:The simplest way to make your pagename is to take off the "Dioecesis" and insert "Urbs". This gives you the name "Urbs Sancti Caroli Borromeo", which is good Latin and is not wrong. You would then try searching this name and variants in Google Books and see whether you find other examples in Latin texts. You might confirm it, and you also might find other variants of the name that are used more often.
:If it's not a cathedral city, you can still do the last part of this. Try searching variants of the name alongside "urbs" or "civitas" or "Philippinarum" in Google Books, and see where you get. [[Usor:Andrew Dalby|Andrew Dalby]] ([[Disputatio Usoris:Andrew Dalby|disputatio]])
