We've noticed some weird spellings of our new street name. It's not a super common word, but it's hardly difficult. But we've gotten all sorts of strange looks and repeats, which we've found amusing. Today in the car we were looking at all the other street names and trying to decide which would be easy for people and which would be hard. (The best one we came across was Possum Holler Rd.) And my husband cracked me up when he said, "I suppose it could always be worse: 'What's your address?' '1532 Ecclesiastical Benevolence.'"

Street names are fun.

You know, like streets named "Hell on Wheels." That was where The Boy lived while we were engaged. Even though it's a neat name, with a lot of history, people definitely had problems with it.

My Mom is buying a new house and is very concerned over street names. I told her it doesn't matter how simple it is, you will always have to spell it for someone.....

We always pay attention to street names. Ones I've enjoyed over the years: Tennis Ct.; East St.

Then, there's the themed streets with a mistake thrown in... Rumba Rd., Macarena St., Waltz Dr., Cha Cha Ct., Salsa St., and Picante Way. PICANTE? lol

Hey! We have a "Hell on Wheels" too! And I think it's the coolest. Our street doesn't seem that difficult either, Sarah, but I always have to spell it out for people.
