Name Your House ...

Or apartment, or farm, or camper ... As you can tell by the photo that goes with this blog, I've named my house The Burrow. I chose that name because I think rabbits are adorable and because I enjoy coming home to my burrow and "burrowing" in for the evening.

My sister named her new cottage "ShellSeaker". She loves the beach and has decorated her cottage in a beach theme, plus all of us sisters enjoy looking for seashells, collecting them, and creating things from them. My sister chose the name and the symbol for her cottage, I collaborated with my boss to have the sign cut out of 1/2" salt-treated plywood then sent it to my niece for painting; she has such a talent in that direction. Anyway, the sign for my sister's cottage was quite a group effort.
I am fascinated by the whole concept of naming where you live. It took a little while but now when I say, "I'm going to The Burrow" folks know what I mean.
Would you name your house? If so, what would you name it?
