Roman hills

Can anyone tell me whether the Roman hills: Palatium, Capitolium, Aventinus, Caelius, Esquilae, Viminalis, Quirinalis..are adjectives or nouns and if nouns what gender..?

Orberg seems strangely indifferent to explaining the gender, word form or otherwise of names of places.... I don't know why since he is so assiduous in explaining every other word that occurs for the first time.

Nomina omnes, vel substantiva adjectiva Viminalis et Quirinalis. In dictionarium inquiras.

Neutrius generis Palatium et Capitolium
Masculini Aventinus Caeliusque
Et masculini Viminalis et Quirinalis [Collis] quae vocabula sunt adjectiva propria vel substantiva
Feminini Esquiliae
I'm writing in Latin hoping for correction, and not because I'm confident in how I express myself. Latinè scribo ut ab omnibus corrigar, non quod confidenter me exprimam.
