The first records of street names can be found on maps from the second half of the 19th century. There were three noted street names: Nagy utcza (Hungarian for Main Street), Mokrini utcza (Mokrin Street) and Vasar utcza (Fair Street). Those were the streets that marked the boundaries of town quarters – Semlački, Čanadski, Nadlački and Brežanski. More street names have been recorded later. One gets the impression that street names were given spontaneously, almost descriptively and conditionally, so some of them were already lost by the end of the 19th century. One name was used to denote the whole street direction (East – West or North – South), so that a street of one and the same name stretched across two town quarters, that is to say through the whole town, as wide or as long as it was, since it had essentially rectangular shape. Ten to fifteen years later, it was established that a street under one name can stretch only through one town quarter. The naming of the majority of streets in Kikinda was finished in 1898. Official street names were probably determined in the last decade of the 19th century, when Kikinda got the status of a town with an organized senate.
