Should Street Names include the Direction?

Hi, I’m adding businesses to my local area. Today I got a comment that “South X Street” does not exist. The current street name is just “X Street”. It should be South X Street. 2 blocks away, after the main intersection, it is correctly named “North X Street”. Business typically indicate direction in their websites and other online listings. I feel the directions should be part of the name, just as the type of street (Ave. Blvd., etc.)

I tried the Wiki but couldn’t find this situation. What is the consensus on how the streets should be named? Thanks!
