Here's another chaotic city:

The capital of Ukraine is represented at TE as:
kiev
Kiew
Kieyv
Kiiv
Kijev
Kijiv
Kijow
Kiyiv
Kyev
Kyiv
Kyjiv
Kyyiv
Kyyv
Kyyivska

The city was generally known as Kiev, which is the Russian spelling, during the time of the Soviet Union. Since independence Kyiv, which is Ukrainian, has been the most relevant spelling. So I suggest that Kyiv should be used throughout.
