A Funny and Weird List of Amarillo Street Names
Amarillo has some weird street names. Here are a few that are weird listed below:
-Big Horn Trl.
-Bob White Trl.
-Ghost Dance Trl.
-Lazy B Rd.
-N Ong St.
-Painted Daisy Pl.
-Peach Tree St.
-Purple Sage Cir.
-W Mobley St.
Imagine living on one of these streets and saying, “Oh yeah, I live on Kachina Rd.” The literal translation for that is nasty in Spanish. Whoever came up with these street names was probably laughing their butt off.
My guess is that that person ran out of words to use so they started to come up with random words that didn’t make any sense or started to make a weird combination of them. After doing more research about this, I found out that developers are usually responsible for naming streets.
Developers come up with a street name by naming main streets after people that were heroes or leaders and name other streets by certain traits they want people to identify with that neighborhood.
Developers also name streets after landmarks, topographic features, or location. Who would’ve known this was the reason behind naming streets? The next time you see a weird street name, at least you know why it was named that and possibly the reason behind it.
