Why would anyone want to call it (in p-celt, thus native) "the dead

I think so too:
Recently I read a suggestion why migrating Cimmerians might be
interested in settling in Himmerland: the Limfjord was, then as now,
(in the late Middle Ages it was blocked by an isthmus of sand at the
western end, but the sea broke through again 200 years ago) a passage
between North Sea and Baltic, and the passage north of Jutland
(Skagen) was dangerous to ships until the advent of steam ships (no
natural harbors and three undersea sandbars all the way). Whoever
lived in Himmerland controlled the trafic between those two seas.

I wonder what kind kind of people call their home "Dreadful City"? I
like my suggestion for Madum better.
