The only one I'm not 100% sure of is Urquhart Street, but it's a minor side street anyway, so I'm not losing any sleep over it.
I live on Calais Drive and you wouldn't believe the mangled versions I hear every day from people trying to pronounce that!

We also have
  • Gay Street
  • Bent Way
  • Pratt Street (which will be funny to readers from England)
  • Neon Forest Circle
  • Confidence Drive
  • Tenacity Drive
  • Half Measures Drive
  • Tempted Ways Drive (I'm not making these up!)
  • Incorrigible Circle
  • 100 Year Party Court
  • and Ionosphere Street

Wouldn't you just love to live on one of those?

You beat me to it, Scufflegrit Road is my all time favorite road name.

Also in Cobb County is Wigley Road, it does have a lot of curves.

Moon Station Road in Kennesaw makes me think Frank Zappa named it.

While on Kennesaw, gotta mention Big Shanty Road.

Cedar Lane Road. Apparently, Cedar Lane just wasn't a long enough name?
