Check out the book "Streetwise Chicago" by McNamee of the Sun-Times. It has all the names you would want to know.

Streets get their names from many different sources. One example is the method of naming streets after numbers (1st avenue, 2nd avenue.) In this example, streets are named based upon the order they were constructed in. Other street name examples include naming streets after other cities or towns, naming streets after famous people, and naming streets after foliage in the area.
