Because it's called Penang in MFM. No "hack" happened.

Penang Chinese Heritage Road Names

I scanned this info from one of the articles in Oriental Daily News about Penang's Heritage.

I think a lot of us would cherish what our grandfathers or grand-grandfathers had, once upon a time, been calling these streets in George Town (or Tanjung?).

Maybe someone is willing to help to translate the literal meanings of these names so that the Non-Chinese readers can also appreciate them.

I've already added the inner city ones (Chinese names of streets, that is) in the POI list managed by bro fancheng:

MFM Simplified Chinese POI

As for translating the meanings, the link put out by bro Jason above should do the trick.
