From the Abdul Gaffoor Mosque, named after a Tamil clerk who was the mosque trustee, to the Zion Close/Road, which acquired its sobriquet because of a Presbyterian mission boarding school run in the area, this reference alphabetically lists Singapore's street and place names, offering explanations of their origins. The names reflect Singapore's colonial history, older historical and mythical figures, flora and fauna, different ethnic groups, etc. Expunged names are included where known.
