I too thought it has a troll-tag potential. But if the name's on the ground...
A similar thing that came to my mind some time ago are named alleys on
allotment gardens. These are not official names, yet they're on the
ground. It'd be sensible to exclude them from reverse geocoding and
street list generation, probably downplay them in search results, but
keep displaying them as normal.
