For what it's worth, there is an area in Leeds (UK) which has a set of
streets called 'The Shakespeares' - it's very much a feature of the
Victorian part of the city that the planners exhausted all the
variations on 'Royal Park Street, Avenue, Crescent, Row etc. etc.' - and
the habit continues - the Shakespeare's are part of a 60s (I think)
housing development.  Nothing can be read into the choice of name....
