Reykjavík names a street after Darth Vader from Star Wars

LOCATION OF FUTURE DARTH VADER STREET The red circle shows the location of the street Svarthöfði, which translates either as Dark-cape or Darth Vader. 

The Reykjavík City Council has approved a motion to rename a street in the industrial district of Höfði after the Sith Lord Darth Vader. The suggestion came out first in a poll on the city website Better Reykjavík, which allows citizens to prioritize and suggest new city projects or allocation of funds to make Reykjavík a better city.
The mayor of Reykjavík, Dagur B. Eggertsson announced this on his Twitter–feed yesterday.
