Funny Toronto Street Names

Funny Toronto Street Names

Our City certainly has its share of unique street names that characterize so much of Toronto- Bloor, Bathurst, Spadina etc... Among the choices made to name our streets, a few were named with a good sense of humour. Here are nine names we've found that have a funny ring to them. 

Avenue Road

Neighbourhood: Several

Major Junctions: Bloor St., St. Clair Ave., Eglinton Ave., Lawrence Ave., Highway 401

This probably has a familiar ring to us now but to anyone hearing it for the first time this is probably as peculiar as Street Boulevard.

Avenue Road

Disco Road

Neighbourhood: Rexdale 

Major Junction: Hwy 27 & Dixon Road

You might well expect a party on a road called Disco but it might be the last place to find one. A stone's throw from Pearson Airport, this small road benefits from the cheer its name affords it. 

Disco Road

Limerick Road

Neighbourhood: Pelmo Park

Major Junction: Jane Street and Wilson Avenue

There's a street in Dublin and a road in Toronto named Limerick

Neither seem all that poetic, funny isn't it?

Three more lines

And I think this rhyme

Will qualify as a Limerick

Limmerick Ave

Mould Avenue

Neighbourhood: Rockcliffe-Smythe

Main Junction: Jane Street & St.Clair Avenue West

One of the more undesirable things to happen to any home makes for a pretty unappealing street name. However, contrary to what you might expect, Mould Avenue turns out to be a lovely street.

Blong Avenue

Neighbourhood: Leslieville

Main Junction: Queen Street and Carlaw Avenue

The name is peculiar and can conjure up images of fraternity housing. Thankfully, the street in nothing of the like.

Blong Ave

Sesame Street

Neighbourhood: L'Amoreaux

Main Junction: Sheppard Avenue East and Pharmacy Avenue

Can you tell me how to get..

Who knew Sesame Street was in Toronto!

Turntable Crescent

Neighbourhood: Earlscourt Park

Main Junction: St.Clair Avenue and Dufferin Street

An apt name for any crescent- the Naming Committee of Earlscourt snapped this up before anyone else with a 
good sense of humour could.

Strange Street

Neighbourhood: Riverside

Main Junction: Queen Street and Broadview Avenue

Strange Street leads off Queen and a few dozen meters from its junction it curves into a back alley of commercial

store fronts and residential back lots. It's parallel to a hill that supports a train track and is lined by a hefty phalanx of

trees. It ends in an unpaved dirt clearing which is usually host to a shipping container.

It's likely as strange as a street can get.

Busy Street

Neighbourhood: Leslieville

Main Junction: Queen Street and Carlaw Avenue

...Isn't all that busy.
