    I found one intersection that is my first and last name. But I'll still need a better reason than that to visit Illinois (outside of Chicago that is).

    12,955 intersections with my given name
    4,878 intersections with my middle name
    25,644 intersections with my surname
    14 intersections where my given name and surname intersect.

    One street combining my given and surname as a single street name. (It happens to be about 10 miles from me. No, I've never been there.)
    Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration.

    I found 386 intersections where one of the roads was a combination of my first and middle name. My given first name is generally used as a diminutive of a more traditional name and there was a famous performer years ago that went by the same diminutive and my middle name.

    There are 2 intersections with my first name & last name. One is actually close to where I once lived.

    30 with my middle name (surprised there are so few, it's a common name)
    0 with my last name (not surprised at all)
