City of Derby considering Lara Croft Way for a road name

Ol’ Pointy Boobs McGee may have a street named after her when its all said and done. There’s currently a voting processing to pick from eight potential names for a road in the UK city Derby, which was the home of Core Design, original birthplace of Tomb Raider.

If you’re asking videogamers, none of the other names matter: John Flamsteed Way, Griffon Way, Merlin Way,  Sorocold Way, Steve Bloomer Way, Eagle Way and Mercian Way. Eagle Way? Come on! What a crap name.

I know I’m not a resident, but I voted anyway. For Lara. And it isn’t like I’m a big Tomb Raider fan or anything. I mostly voted because the other names are stupid. My apologies to Jon Flamsteed, whoever the hell he is.
