Around the corner from my house: "Sugar Loaf Place"
Named after the large hill next to my house apparently.
Also across the road ("Brook Street" is where I live next to a small river in a valley simply called "The Brook". Aren't we Kiwis original?) there is a "Tandragee Road" named after a idol statue in Scotland I think.

There is a place in the suburb of Stoke called "Poets Corner" where there are streets are named after famous poets. My grandma lives in "Coleridge Place"
In fact, the city centre is full of streets named after the Battle of Trafalgar.

eg.
"Hardy Street"
"Trafalgar Street"
"Collingwood Street"
"Halifax Street"

Some of them aren't particularly funny but they are interesting.

I have seen a "gay close" once.... I also once saw Winkfield Ave and someone with amazing sense of humor decided to make the "I" into an "A"..

As another post we also have a Elbow (Albuen).
Oh yeah, we also have Smĝgen, which can mean "The cig".

You live in Skagen? I always wanted to visit that, but somehow I ended up in Frederikshavn and Hirtshals!

In Bologna, Italy we used to have "Vicolo Fregatette" (Rub-tits alley). It had this name because it was so narrow that two people side-by-side barely fit, so if you encountered a lady coming from the opposite direction you had to "squeeze" yourselves and obviously a bit of tits-rubbing was the norm

It was changed probably in mid 1500 by some Pope and since then it's named "Via Senzanome" "No-name street"

In Huesca we have Calle Peligros "Dangers street". It isn't really dangerous
In Almería you can go through the Paseo de Almería and near Barcelona (In Sant Vicenç de Montalt) I found the Carrer del Sol Naixent, which reminds me of Japan...

Tallinn has a street called Tuukri which is diver in English. Funnily enough, every time there's heavy rain, the street is flooded.
