My team of engineers and designers named many streets in Newcastle, Australia. We were developing a large headland that had been home to many of the Original Australians. So I set the rule, you had to name the road from the local Awakal language. There is an excellent dictionary.
All of the people who picked names, would take a reference to something in their life and then substitute the Awabakal word. Humans use what is comfortable. AR is a comfortable childhood memory and you are now closer to him in your mind.
Street has two e's and one R.
Once I a hurry for a theoretical job, I needed a street name and used my oldest daughter Eliza's name. Broke all my rules in one.
Local Government engineer wrote and asked the background to the name, I had to do research and reply it was the name of the first Vice Chancellor's wife for the local University. Not my proudest moment.
