The 50 Most Common Street Names in America Reveal How Unoriginal American Street Namers Are

American street names are suffering from a bad case of "déjà vu all over again," as Yogi Berra might say.

If you drive along a stretch of road such as, for instance, U.S. Route 30 passing through small towns all along the length of Pennsylvania, you'll see Main Street after Main Street, and an analysis posted to Reddit on Tuesday by user darinhq reveals, that's a nationwide trend: There are nearly 11,000 Main Streets in the U.S.

In fact, the 50 most common street names are dominated by trees, numbers and presidents.

Darinhq's analysis, pulled from U.S. Census data, shows pervasive similarities in American thoroughfare monikers, with "Main" and "1st" being the No. 1 and No. 3 road names in the country and "2nd" coming in, fittingly, at No. 2.

The first tree on the list, "Oak," pops up at No. 9, and "Washington" is the most common presidential street name at No. 13.
