I think it's a good idea, if the council also put up a small plaque to say who the person was. Otherwise, I think it's a silly idea, and would prefer my local councillor to be doing something useful rather than lobbying for this sort of stuff.
Personally I'd also prefer new streets to be named after people who have done worthwhile things in Southwark
As to naming streets after people who have died in recent wars, I'm afraid that's not for me. I'd prefer the council to name things like the cemetaries, rubbish dumps, waste treatment plants, etc after the politicians who decided to send the soldiers overseas to die. (I may well be in a minority here, of course.)
...if you press it, they will come.
