I wonder how the road names are given in the USA, because they appear so much random. Some cities have numbered streets and some don’t. Some names look like they have been lifted from some poetry.
In Silicon Valley, many road names come from the names of tech companies, mathematical and other scientific terminology. You can find here names such as Infinite Loop, AMD Place, Cisco Way, Logic Drive, Fourier Avenue, Fortran Dr, Marvell Lane etc.
The other day when I saw this very typical ‘silicon valley’ road sign, I did not forget to take a picture!
No marks for guessing that Syntax Ct is very close to Fortran Dr 🙂
