Favourite street names?
#1
There are millions of streets around the world - many of which have their own names. Some of these names are very common, and found on thousands of different streets (for example, "High Street" and "Park Avenue"); however, others are more unique. Some have an interesting back-story; some are very unusual; and others are downright amusing :P . Here's a place to share your favourite ones.

I'll start out with Whip-Ma-Whop-Ma-Gate, which is one of the shortest streets in the city of York. 'Whip-ma-whop-ma' comes from "Neither whit nor what", which would have meant "Nothing at all" or "Neither one thing nor the other". Meanwhile, 'gate' is an archaic word meaning 'street' - so, the street name would essentially have translated as "Neither-Here-Nor-There Street" :P .

Do you have any that you'd like to suggest?
