Is there any way (either by app or setting) to make my Android tell me where, by name, I am?

I live in a fairly sizable city with an obscene number of neighborhoods, buroughs, and associated suburbs, all of which blur together without much signage. I also like to go on roadtrips with a minimum amount of planning. Both of these situations often lead me to wonder: what, specifically, is the name of the place that I'm in?
Is there a way to automatically call up this information on my smartphone? The perfect solution would be integrated with Google's navigation system, but almost as good would be an app running in the background. Does such a thing exist? My Google / Play Store Fu has failed me...
