The Streets in This Dutch Town Are Named for Lord of the Rings Characters

(Map: Google)

Geldrop is a town in the southern part of the Netherlands. One of the neighborhoods in that town is named for characters in J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings books.

I don't see a Sauron Street. If there was a Sauron Street, I would move there just to have that address.

They have a school on Sarumon street? That sounds a bit inauspicious.
What's a "Nutsschool"? A school for nuts?
OH! A "Utility School". That makes it . . . well . . . not much more clear to me. A school for nuts to complement the school for bolts?

When I drive around LA I wonder how often it goes the other way around. For example when I drive past Curson Ave (Curzon Dax, maybe?), or Willoughby Ave (The Twilight Zone's "Next stop: Willoughby!"). Not that these are necessarily true, but sometimes when I cross a certain street I wonder.
