In Chattanooga, Tennessee there are two interesting road names. The first is Suck Creek Road, named for the creek it parallels. The creek itself is named for "The Suck." Back before the days of flood control, there was a nasty whirlpool in the Tennessee River just west of Chattanooga that was created by the creek draining into the river at that point. Riverboats passing The Suck had to put lines ashore and be towed along the riverbank be horses to avoid wrecking.
The other road is The W Road. It was built in the late 1800s to protest the toll road that ran up Signal Mountain (later became Taft Highway). The name of The W Road is taken literally from the sharp, steep switchbacks at the top of the road. Anything larger than a mid-sized car cannot make the switchback curves without having to cross into the outside lane. Driving that road at night was always a fun way to scare the living daylights out of the others in the car.
Where I am now, we have one road named El Camino de Manana-literal translation being The Road of Tomorrow. That it certainly is since it's only a dirt road presently. Most of the roadways/taxiways here in our community have aviation related names, being that they're on a residential airpark. Our street-Kachina Drive, is one of the few that aren't aviation related (Tailwind, Cessna, Beech, King Air, Corsair, Lindbergh, Piper, Zeppelin and Kitty Hawk to name a few).
