What's in a Name?

We all have names, but does your special little place that you call home have one? Does it not deserve one? Do you not put your blood, sweat, and tears into it to make it special for yourself and your family? Is it not a place where special moments are shared and traditions are formed?

My home is my haven. It is my safe place. It deserves a name and has the honor of going by Lakewood. Does that not sound like a retreat and somewhere you just want to be? In days gone by, folks had names for their homes. Go ahead and take the plunge. Bestow some history and some honor. Name your home. 

Living it up at Lakewood,

I like the thoughts of that naming your home--wow it's going to take a little time to think of it.

We very affectionately call our home "The Perdue Zoo"....you would have to know us. We have 4 dogs, 2 cats, and 2 out of five kids still living at home. There are many humans and furry friends in and out of our home. That is how the name evolved and we most certainly live up to it in more ways than one.
Blessings, andrea

I want to name my new (3 yr for me) little home. But I can't think of an appropriate one!

We made the mistake of feeding a stray cat that came up and started living in our barn. The next thing we knew, there were 12 cats coming around---and various critters,like racoons and possums would eat out of the cat food bowls at night. We started putting out live traps to catch the varmints, and after catching a bunch of them, my dad told me he thought we should name our place "Possum Holler". Between the possums and the armadillos, I don't think we will ever be able to feed an outside animal again!

That gives me a lot to think about. I don't know what we would name out house but I like the idea.
I think I'll get a tutorial put together for the papier mache snowmen. They're super easy and are fun to create. I don't know for sure when it will be posted but I'll let you know!

I sure don't know what I'd name our place - Possum Holler is taken, apparently!!! Any ideas???

I like this idea. Kinda like "Tara" from Gone With The Wind. Hmmm....I'll have to think on this one. I like your house's name! It does sound like a retreat!

I named my home last year..
"The Ramblewood"

it's fun and part of the history of the location.

I did that when I started my blog! At first I thought it was pretentious, but then I thought, Why Not?! I love our home, and how it looks when I decorate it for July 4th, and my love of the flag, so it seemed fitting: Old Glory Cottage!
This was a great post, and I love the name of your home!

We call our home Rose Cottage.
I have always loved the idea of giving a home a name.
Love your blog too!

I have called mine "Funky Town" in humor. I keep saying when we get our beach home it will be "Lasata" which is an Indian word that menas "place of peace".
