|Helden Avenue (until 1922)|
Bob Regan includes "Herod" in a list of streets named for noted historical people, with no further details. The misspelling suggests that Regan may have assumed the street was named for Herod the Great or another member of the Herodian dynasty. But the name of the street has two R's, not one. There are no particularly notable historical figures with the name Herrod.
