Indeed - but if you actually read the links there you'll see Bill 
Bryson's comment on that very page ("In different regions they go by 
different names...").  He's someone who's studied the origin of the 
language in both the UK and the US. The word "holloway" is pretty 
archaic, appearing now only in some placenames (I gave an example in 
Derbyshire) but isn't widely used as a descriptive term.

Best Regards,
