    need to name a house

    I know this is a strange request but i had to ask you all a favour.
    I need to come up with a unique name form my dream house.
    My mother has collected these tokens for me to enter a compation to win an apartment al i have to do is come up with what i would call my dream house. I'm a bit stuck as all i can think of is the obvious ones that i'm sure many people will submit. So if you could help me come up with a name i would really appriciate it!
    Hope you can all help me!
    Niamh

    OK, perhaps not the most original, I'll think some more.

    Redwall Abbey. Or Salamandastron. and if anyone knows what books those are from I'll send you an ecard.

    Idyllic Refuge?
    The Angels' Lair?
    Homeric Idyl? (this is maybe too farfetched a wordplay )
    Hasslelessness (I like the way this one sounds, slithering as a serpent )
    My Eden?

    Most of what I can come up with involves 'heaven', maybe I'm not that creative as to come up with a suitable name. Good luck with that, Niahm!

    The Redwall cycle. The one with the unusually violent rodents.

    Heorot is an obvious one, but any of Tolkein's variations thereon would do nicely as well.
    What is the use of a violent kind of delightfulness if there is no pleasure in not getting tired of it.

    You can expect your card in a day or two.

    I thought of another one. How about "Newgrange"?

    Carraig na Ri (the kings rock) or should it be Carraig an Ri!
    Sceal (which is irish for story)
    Teach sceal (story house)
    humble abode (which is right up there with Kands suggestions!
    DunSi (fairy fort)
    the nest
    St Doolaghs place (because the local saint in the area the apartment is is St Doolagh.
    Please Help!

    Betsy...or for a boy house you could try Fred.

    Niamh, this website might give you some ideas. (better than Betsy, at any rate.)

    House name suggestions.

    what about Pemberly? (I like this thread. I've always wanted to name a house since I read Anne of Green Gables.) Speaking of which, what about Green Gables?

    BTW, I LOVED DunSi.
