Street Names in America is mystery for me. Let me randomly put some street names I am familiar with:
- Hans St
- Serra St
- Alma St
- Quarry Rd
These are not English words. Does people invent a word and use it to call the place they live, or what?
I at least understand certain types of road names:
- Interstate, or state roads that are numbered, like US101, I-280, CA-85
- Named after another name, like Oregon Expr, Santa Cruz Ave
- Just some nice names that means something: Sand Hill Rd, Sweet Oliver Rd (inside Stanford), Garden Dr.
But the names I listed at the very beginning does not fit into any of them… Can anyone help to explain this?
