Accounting
zzz Other zzz term or phrase: El Solyo
I'm not sure which Language this term is. It's the name of the street that I live on, and I've seen several other streets named after it as well as a town.

If you could help me out with the language the meaning of this, it would be great!

English translation:Sounds like, but it's not
Explanation:
Hi Shawnda

It sounds like Spanish, the article "El" is Spanish, but "Solyo" is not a Spanish word.
I had a look at this page:
Street Index
... St El Roble Ct El Salto Dr El Seco Way El Serena El Sereno El Sereno Ave El Sereno Ct El Sereno Dr El Sereno Trl El Sobrante Dr El Sobrante St El Solyo Ave El ...
elib.cs.berkeley.edu/sfbay/html/mapfindindex-E.html
And all the other words are Spanish (roble, salto, sereno, seco, serena, sobrante). The only word that is Spanish and this reminds me is "Sol" (it means sun), and this could be "El sol y yo", **the sun and me** But this is a really free interpretation.
