    Would love to have some animal named streets. Particularly anything avian but that's just me. :p
    Examples - Falcon Terrace, Raven Way, Hawk Heights, Crow Circle, Jackdaw Avenue, Owl Path.

    Streetnames with person's names and events in them, like:
    Margaret's demise
    Margaret's birth
    Margaret's camp

    If that's too personal, you could go for:
    Wizard's demise
    Hero's birth
    Knight's camp

    I haven't seen this one which is near and dear to my 17+ year old character from the original Britannia:

    Scribe Circle

    To me it would be a good residential street name.

    These names could end with any number of things; lane, street, alley, boulevard - and maybe some German names like Strasse, Gasse)

    In memory of the Ultima Online dungeons of old Britannia:

    Blighted Grove
    Covetous
    Deceit
    Despise
    Destard
    Hythloth
    Shame
    Wind
    Wrong

    Others (from past Ultima series or random thoughts):
    Wisp Grove
    Stygian Abyss
    Ring of Fire
    Feudal Lord Lane
    Unknown Soldier
    Perinian Depths
    Glyph

    From Ultima 4:
    Seven Dungeons (lane, etc)
    Names of all the 8 stones:
    Yellow Compassion
    Blue Honesty
    Red Valor
    Green Justice
    Orange Sacrifice
    Purple Honor
    White Spirituality
    Black Humility

    Ultima 3:
    Morinia Mines
    Moon
    Dawn
    Fawn
    Dardin's Pit
    Ambrosia
    Sosaria

    And so on =)

    Historically major roads were named for locations they were going to/from. Greenfield, Fond du Lac, Mequon, etc. (examples from here in Wisconsin).

    Since Avatars play a crucial role in the history of Britannia, it seems that every town, and city should have an Avatar named avenue or lane "Avatar Way" has a nice ambiguous meaning and sound to it I think.

    Other historical places and names based on Ultima Lore

    Lyceum Lane
    Abbey Avenue

    There might also be some minor roads that were named for major events in the history, victories over evil, or various pivotal historic points or people.

    Stranger's Passing
    Mondain's End


    Of course, if a Guido Lane shows up...I'd be OK with that too ;)

    Some real-world street names would work, like Baker Street or Sunset Boulevard. Names that are fine all by themselves but have definite associations. So, other names in that line could be Downing Street, Wall Street, Pennsylvania Avenue. There must be others but my brain doesn't seem very nimble right now.

    Other possibilities, basically random thoughts: Bagshot Row, Street of Cunning Artificers, Chandler Avenue.

    And if there's a Market Street somewhere it must intersect with Castro Street, because that would be fabulous.

    Every street leads somewhere and its name should have practical use. Every town has similary street names, like Baker Street, Miller ...
    The few Roads that lead to no specific location would have VIP Names, Animal Names and so on.

    The street name changes between two cities in the middle.
    From City A -> City B = City B Street
    From City B -> City A = City A Street

    A long Road leading to the capital would have a name like "Kings Road" maybe there is an "Old Kings Road".

    Some ways denote the villagers as "The old logging trail" or "Miners Path"

    I do not think any street in the city needs a name. I would prefer if guards could describe the way to the nearest pub.

    How about memorable characters and events from the Ultima series :)
    Would be nice to have that 'wink' or ' nod' to the fans.

    Iolo ( or Eyolo )
    Mariah st
    Geoffrey st
    Katrina st
    Julia st
    Jaana st
    Dupre st ( or Duprae st )
    Shamino ( or Shimano st )
    Gwenno st
    Beh Lem st
    Petra st ( the automaton from Ultima 7 serpent Isle )
    Selina st
    Batlin ( or Bat Lane - a play on words ) Ultima 7 black gate
    Mondain
    Minax
    Exodus
    Rudyum
    Patterson
    Nastassia
    Beatrix
    Sutek
    Nystul
    Chuckles
    Hawkwind
    Draxinsom
    Penumbra
    Samhayne
    Estram
    Horance
    Nicodemus

    ...and probably dozens of other characters I can't think of at the moment. If there is an issue with EA owning the rights to them, you could always twist them a bit in the way Shamino became 'Shimano river' or Batlin becomes 'Bat Lane'.

    I have a couple of thoughts on this. The first one is that this should be added to the backer's benefits (as was suggested earlier), to select a street name after the character they play (or plan to play on release).

    So my contribution is:
    Cathan's Way
    Cather's Way

    The second way to do this (which might be more beneficial to the game) is to make this an add-on in the store. That way it would benefit the game overall.
