BBC News – What’s in a street name?.

A plan to name a street in honour of the most badly behaved school pupils in the UK – comic characters the Bash Street Kids – is to be considered by councillors in Dundee. So how are streets named? What needs to be considered and what can the choice reveal about wider society?

The conventional wisdom may be that you should not reward bad behaviour.

But almost 60 years after the kids first created mayhem in the Beano, Dundee-based publisher DC Thomson has asked the city’s council to create a Bash Street next year.
