I know I keep running out of ideas for Street names and thought it would be fun to have a list to help.
I get tired of using the same Street name or ending them as Lane all the time to make it different.
So, if you need an idea, have an idea of names to share... just want to make fun of my list- Join the fun!

Perhaps a real life section of names that make you smile? Near me there's...
Ha-Ha Lane.Deeper into London there's:
Man In Moon Passage
Lamb's Conduit Street
And you wouldn't believe just how many very rude sounding ones there are in London that I just can't bring myself to type! Some funny as well. My favourites are in Gloucestershire:
Upper and Lower Piddle
dont recall seeing [on this thread] rise and hill as typical endings.
eg - Long Hill is a road in our area
In some place they use native/indigenous words for street and town names.
eg North America : eg Squamish, Niagra, ...etc
Australian : Joondalup, Kakadu, Burrendah
My favorite names for streets are:
Ramblings (that's the name of the world i am building)
Coffee (takes a sip lol)
Fallow Corners 8)
Out here in the wild west of Las Vegas, I live in a development called Copperhead. I guess they fashioned it after the old west as some of the streets have names like:
Smoking Gun Court
Bronco Billy Way
Wagon Wheel Cir
When we were picking out the house and where it was to be placed, I told my husband there was no way I was living on Bronco Billy Court.
I love this thread
It's great to see all the ideas!
I decided to do desert names for Rattlesnake Ridge.
And those are just the ones I found interesting. Here is an entire list of all the world's deserts...
You could also do fish species - I've seen that in some towns built up because of proximity to a lake - Bass Avenue, Waleye Way, Guppy Street.
If you have a tropical paradise, look up what birds and reptiles might be there. Sea Turtle Grange would be a cool one
Have something up in the mountains - mountain range names. There's tons of those. Something that is a city - then why not chose city names.
New York Strip
Las Vegas Parkway
San Diego Drive
Rocks would be an interesting thing to name streets after -
Gold Dust Circle
Granite Ridge Road
Those are what I can come up with right now
Castls Dome Landing
(those are just the first three letters in the book I'm reading.)
Theres about a 170 ghost towns listed in Arizona.
Here is two more to add to you list.
Moonlite Park Ave.
I bet there are a lot of names I'd never think of and if you can or want to add to the list, Please do!
