Adding --latin1 to the second mkgmap line gave me four streets to
choose from:

"Trasse (172,173) Hha"
"Irene Rosenberg"

The first two looks like the end of Danish street names, e.g.
"Skovlyvej", "Ellebjergvej" (or other roads ending with the same
letters). The third looks like the end of a German road name (something
ending in "Strasse". The last one looks like the name of a person,
could be a road named after a person, but they usually have something
tagged on the end (-vej, -strasse, -road).

Looks to me like it's grabbing "random" parts of words from the index.
