Name the 50 largest US cities of minimum 5K population by how many syllables are in their name (usually official name unless much more common used). I tried to count syllables as if a native English speaker were pronouncing the names i.e. diphthongs are typically counted as multiple syllables. Judgment calls had to be made on certain names.

    The way “Bossier” is pronounced in Louisiana, it’s two syllables (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bossier_Parish,_Louisiana) instead of three, like French. So “Bossier City” is four syllables.
