I think some of the street names in the area are cute and some are odd

If you feel uncomfortable posting your street it totally understandable but for those who do share the name of your street and if you can leave off the words like court, road, drive etc unless it a numeric road and you feel it is needed.

If you know the history behind the naming of your street that would be cool information as well.

I will start this off:

abercairn

I hate that I have to spell it before I say it when I am giving people my address. It is some sort of Scottish name.

Glencairn (Irish: Gleann Cairn; meaning glen of the cairn or heap of stones) is an electoral ward of West Belfast, taking its name from the Glencairn area. The ward was created in 1985 as a trimmed down version of the former Ballygomartin ward. The ward is heavily Protestant although there is a small catholic enclave in the Mountainview area opposite Ardoyne.
SO IN OTHER WORDS, A PILE OF ROCKS!

Mine is Lexington - named after the town of Laxton in Nottinghamshire. Laxton had earlier been called Lexington.
