While I'm sure you're correct in this instance, rather odd street names abound in Switzerland. Take Elftausendjungferngässli in Basel, for instance.
Yeah, that's what happens when the Brits first convert 11'000 virgins from paganism, then travel to Rom with them all and stop in Basel to pray.

When ist's odd, it goes back to Brits.

<<Die britische Königstochter Ursula, Patronin der Jugend, soll im 5. Jahrhundert zusammen mit elftausend Jungfrauen auf der Wallfahrt nach Rom in Basel Halt gemacht haben und betend zu St. Martin gestiegen sein.>> source German
