In small towns in IA:

Nameless St
Head St -- seems to be common around here as several small towns have one
Nishnabotna Rd
Independence Rd -- not so funny until you find it is a dead end!
Prairie View Rd -- without a prairie in sight
Airport View Rd -- No airport either (used to be a small airport with a grass runway and a creek at one end but it has gone back to being farmland)

One I saw while travelling thru Illinois:
Pansy Lane

Highland, MI:

Crapo St. So much confusion over the pronouncation (Cray-po). that it was changed to Gov. Crapo
for which it was named.

We have a Hardscrabble Dr. in Boulder, CO, too. In the Denver metro, the streets run alphabetically east to west on the w. side of town, and west to east on the e. side (Broadway is the divider). Therefore, there are some very funny names like Xanadu, Xavier, Zenobia, etc.

Not really. LOL But you can always count on people rapidly decelerating to get a second look at the sign.

Also in southern New Jersey...

There's a neighborhood in Monmouth County with the following

Attaboy Ct.
Gayboy Ct.
Handyboy Ct.
Highboy Ct.
Orphan Boy Ct.

Over in Ocean County there's a Pollypod Road. That might not be too strange, but the next road is named Polly Pod Road. I don't think that the PO likes that very much.

Port Norris has a Yock Wock Rd.

We also have the required Easy Street, My Way, Lois Lane and Sesame Street.
