Why not theme street names in each area?
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.
