1 June - What’s in a name?

Ethronvi RoadYou may have seen this already but someone with too much time on his hands has been compiling a list of London street names and how they came to be given those names. Personally I would like to murder whoever it was that dreamed up Coptefield Drive because for a million times in the past thirty years I have had to spell it out if someone asks for my address.

You may be able to look up your own address at https://londonstreetguide.com/bexley/. My favourite so far is Ethronvi Road which I have passed by many times. Silly enough to take a few thousand off the price of a house I would think.
