Bruges - lintels

Actually, I'm not sure they're called lintels. They are the brick or stone work over a window. Do you know what they're called? When we had builders over in 2008 building our extension, I knew all the technical terms, but, like any language, if you don't use it, you lose it.
I ran the name of the street through Google Translate, by the way, and here is what appeared on my computer screen: "Holy Spirit Street"! What a lovely address it makes! "I live at Number 3, Holy Spirit Street". I wonder do credit card companies, banks and policemen think you're pulling their leg when you give them this address?
