Default Shreveport-Bossier City

Anything around here is either stolen from far away (highland ranch) or the most mundane unimaginative names ever. Anything that's a noun with the suffix "wood" added to it; plain old southern this or northern that. Pitiful! Whereas I don't really care all that much, you would think that those developers would have some kind of an imagination or at least their wives or girlfriends (or boyfriends) would. They desparately need help, that's for sure.
Examples are:

Northwoods
Southern Estates
Southern Hills
Western Hills
Greenacres
Greenacres Place
North Highlands
South Highlands

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!

What a visual!

Niceville's got a Sherwood Forest subdivision with similar names.

In Ft. Walton Beach, I actually rather like the neighborhood with the Sherlock Holmes street names (Baker, Holmes, Watson, and Moriarity streets all clumped together)

Alexandria, LA has a number of subdivisions that end with "Village"

Acadian Village
Cherokee Village
Four Leaf Village
Castle Village

Some unusual subdivision names in the area are Lebanon, Rue Left Bank, West Pointe on the Bayou, and Ocho Rios.

One neighborhood, Tennyson Oaks is comprised of streets which almost always end with the word "Oaks." For example, Moody Oaks, Taylor Oaks, Audubon Oaks, Windy Oaks, etc.
