I dont think so, its hardcoded unlike say civilication.
You cant make new citys so your stuck with the ones you get.
Now in the future there might be a way to mod, but as the files are encrypted that might take some time.

I would totally change Gdansk to Danzig because Danzig ist Deutsch.

1.Unpack the patch_xx.pack (xx=languagecode) with PackFileManger
2.Open text/localisation.loc with Editor of your choice (Personally I prefer UltraEdit)
3.Search for gdansk (turn off exact match)
4.You'll find it 5 times. You need the two ones reading (English yours may be differnt. The Part after the rectangle is the one that counts)

west_prussia:gdansk389Gdańsk and
west_prussia:gdansk113Gdańsk

Change them to

west_prussia:gdansk389Danzig and
west_prussia:gdansk113Danzig
5.Done
(6.I recommend using UltraEdit because you have multiple viewing options for example Hex&ASCII together)

editf course you need to remove the patch_xx.pack file after unpacking (or you replace the localisation.loc inside of it using PackFileManager)
