Vermillion has some good ones. I like Cinnabar... sounds delicious.
Then they have the Alleys. Alley Bama, Alley Mode, Alley Babba and Tin Pan Alley.

There is a street in my apartment complex called Bannockburn... in line with the other streets named for Scottish places, I guess!

Burtons Barn in Mooresville. I guess it has to do with the fact that our subdivision was part of a farm at one time.

One of my all time favorite funny street names was one in Long Island called "Skunk's Misery"

There is at least one Hooker St. I know of in CT, being that a guy named Hooker is a historical figure in CT. I still wouldn't want to live in that street...history or no history!
