Eclipse stays around in city street.
Developer Benfield Homes has won the backing of the city council to name the street Eclipse Close.
The company submitted a shortlist of three names to the council for the new address off Blackshaw Drive at Walsgrave.
But the fire service vetoed two possible names, St Mary's Close and Blackshaw Close, because they were too similar to existing street names in the city.
A Benfield Homes spokesman said: "We had to come up with three suggestions fairly quickly and the eclipse was topical at the time."
Work on the development of nine homes in the cul-de-sac along with three facing Woodway Lane is due to start this week.
Last month the council's planning policy team agreed permission for the company to demolish a listed Coventry building that had fallen into disrepair, as part of the development.
The house, 13 Woodway Lane, had been listed since the 1970s.
