When used as a road name (there are lots of Chapman Roads in the UK, and I'm sure it's the same in the US) it is most often named after someone who was important in the town at the time the road was built (mayor, politician, businessperson, rich person, sportsperson, doctor, vicar etc etc etc). Same with lots of other road names.
