Oh, please don't do that.  We'd end up losing out on little, and largely subconscious, language & cultural lessons & eventually some of us will end up writing Sao Paulo & think we're doing so correctly.  So many names --mine fortunately is not one of them-- have been corrupted & bastardized here in the United States simply because some of us, or our forbears, were unwilling to make the effort to preserve the correct spelling.
