Why do we name our houses & farms?

Houses are vessels of love. They contain memories, good times and sad times. They are where our children grow up, where birthdays are celebrated, and family gatherings enjoyed. Our homes host Christmas trees dressed in baubles and tinsel and where their lights twinkle in anticipation of gifts. They are shelters that protect us from the elements and life’s storms. A house is more than a wooden or brick box; it is a home that deserves a name.

House naming initially was used as an address, a necessity allowing people to find each other. Customarily, however, house or property names were first given by the initial owner to portray a sense of history or to denote wealth, status or power. Names such as Windsor Castle, Admiralty House and The White House all suggest wealth and importance but so can names, such as The Manor, Kingston, Court Manor, Kingsmeadow Park, The Park Manor or Kingsmead. Many houses traditionally carried the family name also for prestige purposes: Thornton, Stansfield, Charleston, Sandford Manor, Radbourne Hall, Chatsworth, Chiswick or Swinton Park.

House naming was initially a tradition our great-grandparents and grandparents often indulged in, just wander through the older sections of your local neighbourhood and no doubt it will reveal many old name plaques such as Hill View, The Cottage, Rosebank, Rose Cottage, Fairview or similar. Many of these properties have been named after places often in England, Scotland or Ireland. Some may be named after a family connection, such as where a couple may have been married, where they first met or some other significant event either related by family history or history itself. For example, Nottinghamshire, Sheffield, Aberdeen, Lancaster and Dublin to name but a few.

Today naming a house is back in fashion and even considered romantic thanks to the resurgence of passionate renovators, enthused architects, capable builders and motivated first-time home buyers all wanting to place their mark on their house by giving it a name and in doing so, a personality. It is not unusual for a name to be provided by the architect or builder to assist in the sale desirability of their project. A building named Bellavista may help sell the property more than an unnamed building.

Traditional naming inspiration

Naming a house or property to describe its surrounding view, is also a simplified but traditional method of naming. Ocean View, Sea Vista, Ocean Mist, Riverview, Green Clover Fields, Mountain View, Hillside, Forestdale and Forever View.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The use of the land may also be a consideration: The Dairy, The Old Brewery, The Sheep Station, The Old School House, The Old Church, Wheatfields, Canola Meadows, The Old Vicarage and Lavender Fields.

Humour can also play a part in naming a home but do so at your own risk to future sale as new owners may be turned off or just may not get your humour and preferring a traditional house name. Some examples of humour names: The Bank’s, Thistledoo, Penniless or Dunroamin’ for the house owner who is ready to settle down.

Can-doo attitude

Doo-Town is a small coastal town near Port Arthur in Tasmania, Australia where the locals display their wit in naming houses ending in ‘Doo’. The town’s folk have made house naming a tourist attraction! Local architect Eric Round began the tradition in the 1930’s, and it continues on today. Examples include Doo-Me, Doo-Us, Love-Me-Doo, Much-A-Doo and Gunna-Doo.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                   

 
The personality of your home
House names vary according to the taste and character of their owners. Some homeowners may choose a name that reflects a bygone era: The Renaissance, The Victorian and Gothic Manor, while others may prefer something a little more colourful: The Painted Lady, Rainbowflats, The Yellow House or Violet Cottage, depending of course on the colour of your house. For homes with personality plus consider The Zany Zone, Bedlam, Folly Farm or The Funny Farm. House names may also evoke feelings of power or strength: High Court Manor, Coronation House, Royalty House, The Pillars, The Palace, The Palais, The Stronghold or The Fortress.  Others may choose a house name to reveal the cultural heritage of the owner: Māori House, The Celt, Mohawk, Wiradjuri, Pitjantjatjara, Parisian Manor, Sydneysider, New Yorker or Lakota. For a name that is fresh and individual: Wrangler Ranch, Brumby Station, Unicorn Valley or Broken Wheel and for a home with incredible energy, consider Edenhope, Hopeton, Sunnyside, Sunny Fields, The Summer House, Sunny Corner, Bright Hall or Sunnycroft.

The endurance of the house name

It is essential to select a name that will be as fashionable today as it will be tomorrow or even in a century. To ensure the durability of your house name consider traditional names or names that have been tried and tested over the years and possess lasting appeal: The Manor, Summermead, Springvale, Rose Cottage, Oaklands, Woodside and The Old Dairy. Using a name without staying power may date your home fast and make it unappealing to guests and future buyers. For example, Kardashian Castle, Bieber Estate, Trump Cottage and Lohan Cottage.

Remembrance

Naming a house after a loved one is a lovely sentiment that will endure possibly for

generations. For example, Elizabeth Farm in Parramatta Australia is named after John

Macarthur’s (1767-1834) wife Elizabeth (1766-1850). Macarthur was responsible for the

establishment of the Australian wool industry. This name is known today and carries

Elizabeth’s and John’s legacy. Other examples are Elizabeth Cottage, Katherine Court,

Johnstone Manor and Cavanagh. A house may also be passed down from one generation

to the next, or a much-loved grandparent may be honoured by naming the house after them:

Violet’s Cottage, Kath’s Cottage, Theodore’s Valley and Ruby Fields.

Rosemary Cottage or Red Poppy Cottage are examples of remembrance, especially for those

who died in war times. Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae (1872-1918) wrote a poem as a tribute

to a friend in 1915 titled, In Flanders’s Fields. In his verse, red poppies grow over the graves of

fallen soldiers, inspiring the flowers to become symbols of remembrance. ‘In Flanders Fields’ is

named after a province in Belgian, East and West Flanders and is also part of the French area known as Nord-Pas-del-Calais.

 

“In Flanders fields, the poppies blow,

Between the crosses, row on row…”

 

The red poppy has since become a symbol of remembrance for those who have fought in wars. Rosemary, particularly on Anzac Day (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) is used as a symbol of remembrance and was believed by the ancient Greeks to aid the memory, hence its usage. Other house names that represent remembrance include, Red Poppies, Red Poppy Cottage, The Red Poppies, Red Poppy Meadows, Red Poppy Gardens, Rosemary Cottage, Rosemary Gardens, Rosemarycot, Rosemarycotte or Rosemary Estate.

Family names 

Surnames are an accessible means for finding a house or property name and can also represent an attachment to the home that could last generations, for example, Brayden House, Coopercott, Glengarry, Shaw House, Osborne, Howard Hall,

Montgomery Manor, Evansleigh, Austin Estate and Grantley Estate.

Combining the names of one’s children or family members can create a unique name for a home. For example, combining the following: Shay and Lea result in ShayleaGlen and Gary occur in Glengary. Sara and Anna become Saranna.

Be aware that name combinations can prove to be an enigma to those reading the name. A good rule is to keep naming simple, or you may find yourself having to explain why you chose that name for your home, repeatedly. For example, Sophtomia (combinations of Sophie, Tom, Mia) and Marwyland (combinations of Margot, Wylie and Andrew), may be more difficult to recognise than Glengary or Austinlee.

Reversing names and words

First names can also be reversed to make a house name.

For example, Senga (Agnes), Eronelle (Ellenore), Samoht (Thomas), Lexa (Axel), Haras (Sarah), Nalon (Nolan), Leira (Ariel),

Acire (Erica) and Nawor (Rowan). Names are only limited by the ease of the pronunciation. Remember not to overwhelm the reader by excessive letters that do both reading and saying the name difficult.

Reversing the spelling of a favourite word or name can be a fascinating enigma to visitors who may try to work out the meaning of the name. One of the most famous house names is a simple reversal of Emoh Ruo (Our Home). Other examples are, Nevaeh (Heaven), Tolemac (Camelot), Nede (Eden), Emoclew (Welcome), Evol (Love), Reverof (Forever), Senots (Stones), Weivaes (Seaview), Traeh (Heart), Remba (Amber), Nedlog (Golden) Remaerd (Dreamer), Remmus (Summer), Rentiw (Winter) and Revolc (Clover).

Romantic destinations, wild adventures in faraway lands are frequently stuff of dreams for most of us.

For example, Casablanca, London, Montana, Morocco, Niagara, Paris, Roma, Sydney and of course Tuscany. These places may hold precious memories such as where you were born, the place you were married or where you spent your honeymoon. For example, Seychelles, Venice, Istanbul, Edinburgh Kyoto, Palm Springs, El Dorado, Cyprus, Graceland, Hollywood, Texas, Long Island, Tahiti, Tanzania, The Hamptons, Montana, Niagara and Santa Fe.

A stroll in the countryside

The beautiful countryside with its flowers, rivers and mountain views can provide the visual imagery that makes choosing a house or property name challenging, but also inspirational.

Animals, birds, reptiles, insects, flora and even fish can ignite the imagination to provide a perfect name for your property. For example, Poodlepoint, St Bernard, The Doghouse, The Cavalier, Beagle, Brown Dog Cottage, Dogville, Cathill, Cathaven, Catville, Wild Dog Creek, The Pigpen, Bear Bungalow, Butterfly Haven, Clover Fields, Cockatoo Cottage, Cod Cottage, Doe Haven, Frog Hollow, Goatfields, Greenfrog Forest, Deerfields, Horse Haven, Cowton, Kangaroo Flats, Crowhaven, Ravencroft, Koala Cottage, Lady Beetle Cottage, Lazydog Farm, Magpie Hollow, Raven Manor, Lorikeet Cottage, Cockatoo Fields, Pidgeon Palace, Horse Valley, Crow Manor, Seashell Isle, Fish River, Platypus Creek, Sparrows Landing and Stonefish Brook.

How to name a house

 

Finding the perfect name for your perfect house may not be as difficult as you may think. Is there a house from literature that you have always liked that would make a good house name? For example, Tara from Gone with the Wind (p. 1936) by Margaret Mitchell (1900-1949), or Mandalay from the book Rebecca (p. 1938) by Daphne du Maurier (1907-1989).

Do you have a favourite song that would fit a house name? For example, Secret Garden (r. 1995) by Bruce Springsteen (b. 1949) or Satisfaction (r. 1965) by The Rolling Stones (f. 1962). See the chapter Love Shack for more musical inspiration.

Reminiscing about favourite holiday places can help you find a house name, for example, Santa Monica, Seine River, Moulin Rouge, Greenwich, Piccadilly, Bondi, Montana, Venice, Florence or Milan. Another way to find a suitable name is to write a list describing your home and its best attributes. Think about what positive words best describe your home or property, for example, green hills, blue stream, wild rose, mountain views, green glades, willows and deer park.

Questions to help you find the perfect name for your perfect home.

 

  • What are the distinguishing features of your home? For example, gables or materials it is made from? For example, bluestone?

 

  • Are there architectural characteristics that stand out? For example, a gabled roof, pillars or a spectacular staircase. Is it a specific architectural design? For example, Victorian, Tudor or a Queenslander?

 

  • Is the landscape of any interest? For example, are there rolling hills, a cliff or a forest? A flowing stream or a is there a lake on the property? Are there mountains in the backdrop or on the property itself?

 

  • Are there any flowers that are prominent in the garden? For example, roses, peonies, daffodils or lavender. Are there any specific trees growing near the house? For example, eucalyptus trees, maples or pines.

 

  • Are there any striking colours in the fields, garden or on the house itself?

 

  • Does the owner do a trade on the property? Or has it in the past been a working business? For example, a dairy? An artist’s retreat? An artisan bakery? A vineyard, blacksmiths or a farm? Are you aware of the history of the house that may inspire a house name? For example: was it once a monastery, school or hospital?

 

  • What animals are kept on the property? For example, sheep, cows, geese, ducks, alpacas etc.

 

  • Did a famous person reside in that house at any time?

 

  • Is the house considered significant in the local area from a historical point of view?

 

  • Was the building designed by a famous architect?

Serenity is Middle English/Old French meaning, quiet and relaxing. The Australian movie, The Castle (r. 1997) is about a family trying to save their home from developers. The father, Darryl Kerrigan, played by Michael Caton (b. 1943) liked to ask, "How's the serenity?" This property name is self-explanatory.

 

The Winning Formula

A house name can potentially add value to your property if you follow the previous winning formula. Below is a list of prestige, historical estates, manors and castle names (and a few more thrown in) that may give an air of wealth and sophistication. English place names boroughs and the like may also be considered as inspiration, but only if their names conjure up images of wealth, romance and desired reputation. The full names have purposely been deleted the full name from the well-known house or property names below (where required), to allow you to add your own prefix, suffix or another keyword to make it your own individual name. For example, Acton House can have numerous suffixes and prefixes to change its meaning completely: Acton Manor, Acton Estate, High Acton, Acton Meadows, Actonfields, Acton Hermitage, Acton Acres, Actonville, Actontree, Greyacton, Garden Acton, Oak Acton and so on.

Below are the names of some of the most prestigious houses, castles, mansion etc. in the United Kingdom. I’ve only included the actual name, not the building type or keyword ending. This way, you can make the name suit your own home or take inspiration from the name.
