Funny Street Names

Updated on September 13, 2014

Funny Street Names, Weird Street Names, Odd Street Names

I grew up in a tiny town in the Midwest with no funny street names. In fact, it was so small, we didn't have street names at all until I was in junior high.

Along with the street names came street signs. Finally! I wouldn't get lost any longer.

Actually, the street names made things harder because people would say "you know, so and so, they live on Locust Street." I didn't know where Locust Street was, but I knew where Mrs. Jacoby lived.

At the same time we also got three stop signs! Whoa. We'd never had a single stop sign before. It was mind boggling.

But even though the town got street names, the street we lived on didn't get named. It was a county road, so it had some number designation. Boring. But we called it Plum Street because it went plum through town.

I recently spotted Gelding Drive in Phoenix. I have to give 'em credit; I did see horses nearby.

Funny Street Names Where I've Lived

I lived in Colorado Springs, Colorado for several years and learned about an entire subdivision with some pretty funny street names. The street names were laid back adjectives, for the most part. My favorite? Nevermind.

Yes, Nevermind was the name of one of the streets.

Along with that humdinger was Nonchalant, Whimsical, Splendid, Delighted Circle, and Blissful to name just a few.

And in another part of Colorado Springs, there's Smoochers Circle and Devil's Thumb.

From Blow Bladder Street to Quaggy Walk - The strange and interesting history of London street names: a miscellany

This Kindle ebook includes street names like Pickled Egg Way, French Ordinary Court, English Grounds, Ha Ha Road, Pissing Alley, and Stinking Lane. I think those last two are probably next to each other.

 

Misspelled Street Names

...Five, Six, Severn, Eight

Wait a Minute!

In Denver, Colorado, there is a street called Severn. Yes, it comes after Sixth and before Eighth.

What a typo.

In Tucson, Arizona, there is a several streets in a subdivision called Brittain, but some are Place or Court. You get the idea. On one of these street signs, it is spelled Brittian.

Oh, it hurts my brain. Spelling does matter!

      With deep regret, I have to acsuce the Greek minister of Citizens' Protection, Michalis Chrisochoidis, as a liar against Greek and worlwide Jews and the international community, as a sycophant against his political opponents, and as a traitor against his own country, Greece.Mr. Chrisochoidis is a liar against Greek and worlwide Jews and the international community, as he tries to appease concerning people, saying that "40 ultra-rights" have been arrested, whereas, not only the specific case had nothing to do with the horrible vandalism of the synagogue, but the truth is that the extreme leftist government of Mr. Chrisochoidis arrested political opponents of him, conservative democratic people demonstrating against the leftist government's intention to naturalize uncontrollably a whole million of illegal immigrants, great part of them extreme islamists for Pakistan, Irak and other third world anti-western countries.In fact, the only antisemitism historically in Greece is founded at the leftist anti-westernerns pro-communists and not in the conservative citizens. Just to mention that the preious prefect of Chania Yorgos Katsanevakis, a severe opponent of the Chania synagogue and the Jew people, was a communist supported by the PASOK political party, that is the today leftist government of Greece. Just to mention that Mr. Chrisochoidis is a minister of PASOK government, the same government which, with Andreas Papandreou as prime minister, the father of today prime minister George Papandreou, was a close ally of Yasser Arafat, Muammar Gaddafi, Wojciech Jaruzelski etc. extreme islamist and communist jew-hater dictators. Mr. Chrysochoidis, instead of spreading insidious accusatons against his political opponents of consrvative right, should search for antisemitism at his own political party. Especially now, when his government continues the anti-western pro-islamist anti-jew tradition of the Greek leftists, giving European passports uncontrollably to hundreds of thousands of extreme islamists from Asia and Africa, producing a great danger form both Christian and Jew native Greeks and all the citizens of Europe. And Mr. Chrisochoidis, a sycophant of his political opponents, acsuced as jew-haters in relation with the burning of the synagogue, innocent conservative patriot citizens opposing exactly his extreme-leftist government's pro-islamist actions!In contrary, with the pro-islamist leftist Mr. Chrisochoidis' government, the Greek conservatives and nationalists not only they have never taken antisemitic actions, but, the nationalist John Metaxas's government fought at the side of the democratic West against the nazi Axis, protected the Greek Jews, had already abolished the previous antisemitic actions of the liberals, and, characteristically, one of the most glorious Greek military war heroes was a Jew, colonel Mordechai Frizis.Furthermore, Mr. Chrisochoidis is a traitor of his own country, because, in order to acsuce his political opponents, he acsuces as gulty of the burning of the synagogue innocent Greek people, and hides the fact that the arrested criminals are two American, two British and one Greek citizen, all workers of the American military base! And instead of pointing the foreigner American-British criminals of the American military base, Mr. Chrisochoidis acsuces his innocent compatriots! [continues]

      Wow, I'm really glad I don't live on any of those streets! I'd hate to tell people my address was Psycho Path or Tapeworm Road. You'd have a lot of explaining to do!

      When I was growing up, we had a house on Kent Island on the Chesapeake Bay. We didn't have a street name either - mail came to "Burdoo house". You've got some great material here, as always.

      Difficult at the moment. Most of the names are linked with historical figures. May not sound that funny. But I like the lens.

      When I was 18 (sigh) I was into U2 and the song that went "where the streets have no name" was going through my head while walking around Algorrobo, Chile during a visit to a friend from there, just as I looked up and saw a street sign that read, Calle Sin Nombre. My grandparents lived on a road called, 'Hell's Kitchen Road' in Massachusetts.

      My mind is a blank, but if I think of some, I'll be back. I particularly liked the Severn Street for a funny street name. Maybe it was just a test to see if the citizens of the town would notice.
