City name that has an article?

Is there a way to know which city has an article in its name? Is there a list? Are Los Angeles and Las Vegas considered cities with an article?

This question relates to:
French lesson "Using 'à' (to/in) and 'de' (from/of) with cities (prepositions)"

No, they're not, because those aren't French articles (they're Spanish), so they're just considered part of the name. I looked, but couldn't find a definitive list.
