The AD admin can create the AFS account with any name they want,
but the ServicePrincipalName assigned to must be, as Jeff said,
afs@<REALM>, or more commonly afs/<cellname>@<REALM>
Since the <cellname> is usually based on a DNS name,
it should be globally unique, so your AD admins should not
have a problem with using the SPN of afs/cellname@REALM

The account name (ktpass -mapuser) could be city_afs
and the SPN=3Dafs/europe.ad.<domain>@<DOMAIN>
