Why House Names?

A house name is the identity of your house. Before someone even gets inside, your house name tells them a lot about your personality, the local environment, your family name, and your generic preferences. People often form their first impression about you and your family from your house name. Giving your house a unique, courteous, and welcoming name is necessary. However, the task of naming a house can be challenging. It takes a lot of time, thought, effort, and energy. Naming a house can make it feel more personal and unique and can also serve as a way to distinguish it from other homes in the neighborhood. Some people choose to name their houses after family members or loved ones or after a significant event or experience in their lives. In some cultures, it is traditional to give a house a name. Sometimes, it is practical to have a name for a house to quickly identify it for mail and other deliveries.
