Why not theme street names in each area?

7 Days in Dubai - - COMUNNITY -

Re Lt Gen Dahi Khal­fan bin Tamim’s con­cern (‘No his­tory in street names’, 7DAYS, Nov 2), I’m not sug­gest­ing the UK’s ap­proach is unique or original but in many ar­eas of the UK street names are themed. One area might use po­ets’ names, an­other uses species of indige­nous plants, a third might use names syn­ony­mous with a par­tic­u­lar in­dus­try. All of this means that a street ad­dress might be eas­ier to find through as­so­ci­a­tion. I think Dubai takes this ap­proach some­times; Bagh­dad Street, Kuwait Street, Beirut Street etc. and I agree with Lt Gen Dahi a sim­i­lar ap­proach us­ing names that have an as­so­ci­a­tion to one an­other would have more mean­ing to peo­ple.
