There are roads round here called Tollington Park, Tollington Place, Tollington Road and Tollington Way and there's even a Tollington ward but no-one thinks of themselves as living in Tollington.
This is a shame. Tollington's in the Domesday book:

John Wittich's Discovering London Street Names says it's in Anglo-Saxon charters even earlier as 'Tollandune' or 'The hill pasture of Tolla'.
I would like it to come back and displace Holloway, Finsbury Park and Stroud Green.
