As we have been looking at house listings online, Aaron and I will often comment and make jokes about street names that remind us of an inside joke or relate to a familiar pop culture reference (fellow fans of The League will understand why we laughed when we looked at a house on Shiva Ct.).
In my hometown, Columbia, MD, many streets take their names from famous works of art and literature. The neighborhood of Hobbit's Glen takes its street names from the works of J. R. R. Tolkien; Running Brook, from the poetry of Robert Frost; and Clemens Crossing, was inspired by author Mark Twain.
North Carolina is no different. A neighborhood in Holly Springs, NC called Holly Pointe uses many iconic names from Harry Potter vernacular. In this community you can find house models and street names inspired by the wizarding world.
