What do the names of the streets of the Ordzhonikidzevsky district of Yekaterinburg mean? - Cya On The Road

Everything on Earth has its own address, and this address begins with the place of birth of a person. From early childhood, we cannot imagine our life without geographical names. Hometown, the street on which we live - everything has its own names. But few people ask the question: “Where did this or that name come from? Why was this place called that?Today in Yekaterinburg there are about a thousand streets, lanes, avenues. We are used to their names and sometimes we simply don’t notice that there are streets named after professions (Electrikov St., Geologists Lane), associated with agricultural activities (Sovkhoznaya St., Kolkhoznaya St.). Revolutionaries from the Urals and figures of Russian culture are immortalized in the names of the streets: scientists, writers, musicians.The language of the people is not something frozen, it develops, changes, some words change their meaning, some disappear altogether. Therefore, it is difficult to find an explanation for the name of a particular river, village, street. Behind each name are amazing stories, often legends.
