The general pattern in the USA is that roads on public land tend to be named; roads on private land may or may not be named, according to the wishes of the land-owner.  Short service roads, such as to connect a public road to a parking lot, or roads within a farm, are particularly unlikely to be named.

Oops, sorry for the assumption there.

OK. The same is not true in many other countries.
