Lord Of The Rings Street Names - Strider @ 16:23 PST
Garfeimao sends in an account of how the names of some streets nearby were inspired by Tolkien's Lord of the Rings trilogy:

Here are the LOTR themed streets in my neighborhood. Shadowfax is a bit blurry, sorry. I was not sure about Buckland, as I don't have my copy of the trilogy around, my sister has it. By the way, that's my street, I live on Gondor, too funny, eh? I guess I was meant to be a Tolkien fan when we moved here. Anyhow, these streets are about 25-30 years old, as near as I can recall. One of these days I may look into the city records to see who it was who was responsible for naming the streets in the area.
