Where the streets have your name

When we see a street with our name on, we can’t help but get a little excited, and think perhaps, we’re destined to live there. But how many streets contain your name? Where can you find them? And, most importantly, how much would it cost to live there?

To find out, we analysed the HM Land Registry database, which records annual property price and sales data for England and Wales. From this, we were able to source a list of over 100,000 street names, along with the average property value for each one.

By using our online tool and entering your postcode, you can find out how close you are to your name’s nearest street and check out the average property price for every street in the database that features your name.

Simply enter your name and postcode to see how often your name pops up and where you can find it.
