You can check the book "Streetwise Chicago" about Clark, Waveland, and Sheffield, but Addison is named after an English physician, Thomas Addison, who noted the disease of the adrenal glands now called Addison's disease. Interesting way streets of Chicago are named after people you don't connect with Chicago.
Even more curious is Irving Park Road, named after Washington Irving.
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.
