I think that would count as having achieved something magnificent with one's life, yes.

I saw a road named "starfield" the other day. I think I'd like to live in a starfield.

When I worked reading out people's addresses to other people over the phone, there were some names like "Snowdrop walk" (nice name, horrible area).

Oh how I prayed that I'd find someone living in "Soylent Green"

My plan is now to arrange to have a street or estate build just so I can name it Soylent Green. Maybe they could set up a residents association "The People in Soylent Green".

That's my plan.

Pollyhaugh (something close to 'polly-hall' but not quite, more glottal stop like, tends to be how it is pronounced) and Eynsford (ains-fudd) are places I have to spell out every time.

I've always found the names of where you currently live fairly amusing though, abigailb. :)
