Who Was St. Nazaire?

Google Maps

If you’re like me, you might have asked yourself that same question, assuming that “Saint Nazaire Road” was named for a saint.

The truth is that the road was most likely named for one of many municipalities in Quebec or France, the St. Nazaire River in northern France, or the St. Nazaire Raid of World War II. The St. Nazaire Raid was a successful British attack on a German-occupied drydock located at the Normandie drydock in St. Nazaire, France.

I’m not sure which of these inspired the naming of the road, but if you know, please let me know by sending me a message on Facebook. I’m going to continue digging, but I’ll definitely give you credit if you can educate me!
