In spite of being an older woman, long past her fictional prime, Tomb Raider protagonist Lara Croft is having a road named after her in England.
The new road is in Derby, and Croft's name was chosen by popular vote. Twenty-seven thousand residents weighed in on the naming, and nearly 90 percent chose Croft.
Why would so many people want their road named after a fictional character from video games? Because Lara Croft was created by Core Designs, a company located in the city of Derby.
Councillor Lucy Care, cabinet member for planning and transportation, told The BBC: "The vote really captured the imagination of people from across the world and, despite my lack of gaming knowledge, I accept that a majority of 89% for Lara Croft is too overwhelming to ignore... She was created in Derby and deserves to stand alongside some of the more traditional icons of the city."
Personally, I want to rename my street Nico Bellic Way.
