Place names in a Greater Tang China?

Hi all,

I'm considering commissioning a map in an ATL where China (however implausible it is thanks to logistics and a changing balance of power in the region) manages to hold on to the frontier territories it conquered in the 7th century, as here:

Some provincial and city names are rather obvious, but what about Tocharia and Antiochia? What might be more natural Chinese names for them? And what about the dividing Anbei and Annan into two (or more) provinces - two or three going east to west across Anbei and dividing Annan into a northern and southern province? Likewise for Andong, especially the parts that make up OTL Korea?

What do you, the readers at home, think?
