deird1: Andrew - with James Bond style intro (Andrew james bond)

I have this hobby. Just inside my head - but a hobby, nonetheless.


There's a group of streets near my house that are all Camelot-themed. Street names like "Camelot", "King Arthur", "Chivalry", Excalibur", and so on.

So - when I'm bored, I pick a fandom, and then start naming streets.


I try to see how many street names I can come up with before it becomes blatantly obvious what I'm doing. The trick is to keep it subtle, while still getting as many character names in there as possible.


For instance:
Summers Drive, Harris Street, Willow Road, Rupert Avenue, Dawn Road, Finn Street, Calendar Close, Chase Avenue, Angel Street, William Drive, Master Court, Wilkins Crescent, Adam Avenue, Glory Road, First Street, Osbourne Drive, Jenkins Lane, Tara Road, Faith Court, Joyce Street, Wells Road...

Or:
Potter Street, Granger Drive, Ronald Road, Owl Court, Albus Grove, Minerva Avenue, Twin Crescent, Ginevra Street, Griffin Road, Serpent Grove, Badger Crescent, Raven's Claw Road, Riddle Court, Auror Avenue, Ruby Road, James Drive, Lily Street...


I think it's rather fun.

In a neighboring community there is a Sunnydale Drive which has a fire department on it, every time I go past I think of OMWF.

Hee! (Not to be creepy, but I totally know where you live now - I had a friend in Primary Street who lived in Golden Grove, and current family friends live in Singer Av.) My partner and I recently started the "street names that could be people's names" game. It is also good.)

Batman Avenue, Albert Road, Robin Street, Penguin Parade...

Certain fandoms are easier than others. In Moonee Ponds there's this series of English literature streets, one after the other. Chaucer, Browning, etc. Or if you're a fan of Australian flora and fauna, or of 19th-century British politics, well, that's pretty much cheating.
