I lived in Atlanta for awhile. Most of the street names were Peachtree, ending in way, street, court, lane, avenue, boulevard, and any other form or synonym for street. I lived on Mead Street, though.
My home town of Antioch has street names such as G Street, 18th Street, and everything in between. A lot of Spanish names too or streets named after trees. I grew up on Springwood Way around Dogwood Way and Mahogany Way.
McComb is easy. There is the part of town with the state named streets. There are a lot of lanes named after who's farm used to be at the end if it. And some streets named for what they are: Street street. Broadway. Magnolia/Pisgah Road. Homesville Road, because it takes you to... Homesville. Easy. I lived on W.A. Walker Rd, named for the man who probably carved a dirt road into the land many, many years ago. He owned a diary farm and most likely had slaves.
I like learning the history of a place. Here in the south, history matters; history shapes the family ties that we see today. History is relevant, much like the biblical/world history I have been learning.
In California, history is fleeting. Families come and go. It's harder to find connections out west. I hope my boys find connections here.
