New Haven Ct.

Why not?

https://goo.gl/maps/BjekjanuyLo

Right, so why was it included in a list of names that will never exist?  (I'm vaguely aware of a BGS that might exist that says "New Haven Ct." referring to the town and not a street called New Haven Court, but I don't want that to be the only reason for this entry in the OP.)

Confederate Rd
Chicken Rd
Boo St
Roo St

Are people researching these first to find out if they exist???

There are several streets called Confederate Road.  Houston, for example.
There is a Chicken Road in North Carolina.  I-95, exit #10.
There is a Boo Street in Pierre Part, LA.
There is a Roo Street in Coeur D'Alene, ID.

Kentucky has a state route 666, and I've seen at least two Virginia secondary routes with that number.

I-420 was taken down (twice, I believe), while US 420 is now part of US 16 IIRC Alt US 14. All of this was unrelated to cannabis culture. OTOH, it was the signifiance of its number what caused US 666 to become US 491 (also, it was weird for a North-South road to have an East-West number, so as it stands now is better).

Another unlikely road name: TheAlan360 Memorial Goat Path.

Hillary Clinton Freeway
Valdmir Putin Freeway
Adolph Hitler Ave.

Apparently there is a Hitler Road Number 2 also:

https://www.google.com/maps/place/Hitler+Rd+1,+Circleville,+OH+43113/@39.5804499,-82.9209632,554m/data=!3m2!1e3!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x884777c18c1aed0f:0x4f2d907d4c48e697!8m2!3d39.5804499!4d-82.9187745?hl=en

Nothing for Putin I could find and there is too many Clintons to count.

A lot of those had the name prior to Bill Clinton being president and is pure coincidence.

I stopped short of saying if she won the election that it would be inevitable that there would be some roads named after her and not Bill.  Same deal with the Trump Highway I saw earlier in the thread.

Speaking of Hitler level of world leaders....there is a Stalin Road in all places the UK:

https://www.google.com/maps/place/Stalin+Rd,+Colchester,+Essex+CO2+8SQ,+UK/@51.8752267,0.9104034,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x47d904e2009a447d:0xc1f43f28c95026db!8m2!3d51.8752267!4d0.9125921?hl=en

Surprisingly there is a ton of Fidel Castro and Mao Zedong stuff out there as well.

Oddly, not that many in the former USSR (I've not found any as point labels for travelmapping), but a butt ton of roads for Lenin.

Edit: those crazy Essex people have a WW1 estate (Mountbatten, Flanders) next to that WW2 estate (Stalin, Roosevelt, Normandy).

Boulevard Blvd

There's a street in Vancouver BC named "Boulevard". 

Though, since it has 'E' and 'W' directional prefixes, it shows up on maps as "East Blvd" and "West Blvd", even though that's incorrect.  The correct names are "E Boulevard" and "W Boulevard".

Dewitt had the Erie Canal dug that cuts right through Rochester (well it used to anyways), I don't think his uncle George had any significant impact on Rochester.
