There are several cities in Spain with a street called "Salsipuedes".

Sal si puedes = Go out if you can. Probably there is a big slope there

This one is in Pamplona:

Figueria da Foz

Rua da Estrada da Serra- Road to the/of the Hill Street

Rua A Voz da Justiça- Voice of Justice Street.

The worst thing is the length of most road names, some examples:

Avenida Doutor Joaquim de Carvalho

Rua Doutor José Luís Mendes Pinheiro

Rua Major Aviador Humberto Cruz

Rua do Rancho das Cantarinhas

Avenida Doutor Francisco Sá Carneiro

Callejón de la Amargura (Bitterness Alley) in southern Mexico City....

There is a street in Sweden called Pökängsgatan. Normally it has not meant anything special (äng means grass field and gatan means street). However in the 1990-ies two young comedians (called Ronny and Ragge) got very popular in TV, and they introduced two new words: Pök, meant young good looking sexy woman, and Pöka, meant having sex. The street name suddenly got attention, and someone suggested a change, but it was not changed, and by now people have forgotten the special words.
