A house is not a home. A house can be a thief; whenever you think you've fixed everything, something else pops up. My motherinlaw always said, A house is a "gonuf." (thief) But that's a sad name for a new house. "Loving Arms"? "Peaceful Haven" "Home for Good"

I called my house in Malvern (UK) "Isle of Dew"
got divorced in it so it turned out to be prophetic, or was I tempting fate?
(phonetic wordplay)
Another house in Melbourne Close, in an area called Little Australia was dubbed "Inn Victoria". Vicki was amused - just.

Pets name and nearest landmark??? Ours would be F!"£ing stupid animal fire station! Doesn't work somehow....

I'm not sure about naming houses unless their is a reason to do so. I have already seen too many 1970's little boxes called Rivendell!

If you must have a name hows about something completely stupid like Fobeth (FOur BEdroomed Town House) - it's novel and possibly the kind of silly thing competition organisers like - particularly if it is for marketing purposes.

Have fun anyway

Herself thinks when we stop working in libraries we should call our house Dunlendin. The neighbours are probably hoping for Dunsingin.

Alternitively you could choose the name by taking your first pets' name and your nearest land mark. Ours would be SnowBall Cross. Just a thought.

Ruthie! Actually the last one I read was Pearls of Lutra. I kind of gave up about 40 pages into The Long Patrol and haven't read or re-read any since.

Mossflower is my absolute fave, and Gonff is my absolute favorite character.

This has nothing to do with housenames (sorry), just asking... mousethief!!! have you actually read all the Redwall books too? I discovered them when I was eight and have been addicted to them since. However much I interrogated friends/foes/random people in libraries, I couldn't find somebody else who'd read them and enjoyed them. Wow! My life's purpose is fulfilled now.

ANYWAY, I think the house should be called Fluffy, for the simply reason that it most probably isn't.

I think it's nice to have a moniker for the place one dwells, sometimes silly, sometimes charming... we call my loft apartment "The Haven", and it seems to really have grown into it.
How about Groove Palace?

I dunno - names for houses seems okay to me, gives something to refer to. My parent's house was nameless for years - but has since become "The Bighouse" - My Grandmother's house was and is "By-a-brook" - My sister's property is "Bear Haven"

"Number 92" - or whatever. Who needs a name?

Names on houses in towns never seem right to me. And if they just have names, and no numbers, they are a real pain to identify - you have to go right up to the door and get growled at by the family dog. Or in some cases shot at by the family psychopath, I gather. And it's never the right house anyway.

Live there awhile, and the number takes on a new meaning - there are some numbers that, if I close my eyes, I can still see the place years later.)

What street is it on? What's the name of the neighborhood? What colour is it? What prominent geographical features are in the neighborhood?

The only home I ever named was the apartment I moved into after my first wife and I separated. I called it "St. Ninian's" because that's the home of the character "Mousethief" (he's a church mouse) in the book in which he appears (Mossflower).
