No. The inverted commas are called apostrophes, by the way. It is simply a proper noun.


No. Each would be capitalized when used as a proper noun. "...Bowtown," said Mum. Mum here is the name of your mother. Dad would be the same. If you say my mum, or my dad, it would be lower case.


Yes. It's a proper noun, in this case.
