Feng Shui observes the environmental influence that our surroundings could have on us. This includes the interior and exterior of our homes. The feng shui principles take into considering the various details including the placement of trees, lamp post and drains on your property. Even your street name could present a certain energetic vibration.
While in North Carolina, in the Historic Oakwood Community I noticed some of the street names had a bit of an aggressive tone, such as with "Poor House Rd" and "Bloodworth St." This is not saying because your home resides on streets with names such as these that "negative energy" will be created. There are many variables when cultivating Chi' (energy).
This observations is simply offering another perspective for developers to strongly consider when naming streets, as some day the power of words may become measurable.
