I lived in Atlanta as well as in New Orleans. As I mentioned, Atlanta 
is worse than Boston as far as roads go while it is a much newer city. 
I mentioned the 18 Peachtrees, but there are many roads with the word 
"ferry" in them. New Orleans has a unique name rule. In New Orleans you 
can't have a Bourbon Street and a Bourbon Ave, and the official 
pronunciations are interesting.  I tried to take a cab to Versailles 
Boulevard once, and the cab driver didn't know where that was until I 
said "versales". The cab companies used the same guide as the cops. Of 
course there are streets like Tchoupitoulas Street.
