Yes, this is a real news story and not something from the Onion. Some residents on a certain street in Columbia, Md. are foolishly trying to change the name of their street from one of the coolest names ever, to one of those boring, generic, over-used, whitebread subdivision street names that have zero sense of real place.
From this story on nbcwashington.com:
Columbia, Md., has interesting street names that bring to mind hunting and the great outdoors, but residents object to one. “You just buy into a house and then you realize, I'm on Coon Hunt Court,” homeowner Shirley Sickels said. Rosalie Consiglio has been working to get the name changed a long time. “The problems I’ve had is embarrassment with the name,” she said.
