Most common street names by country in Europe

by Jakub Marian

Tip: See my list of the Most Common Mistakes in English. It will teach you how to avoid mis­takes with com­mas, pre­pos­i­tions, ir­reg­u­lar verbs, and much more (PDF Version).

Out of linguistic curiosity, I started looking up the most common street names in various countries. The following map shows those I have found so far (there’s also a table with the list of sources at the end of the article).

I was unable to find data for some countries. If you know a source for a country that is not yet included in the map, I would be grateful if you let me know.

By the way, I have written several educational ebooks. If you get a copy, you can learn new things and support this website at the same time—why don’t you check them out?
