Help me name my farm...?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

So we are moving to our farm in a few weeks lol.gif....it is so exciting!!! I need a name for our lovely new homestead.  It is at the foothills of some amazing views of the San Fransisco Mountains- but still on a mountain itself....7,000 vs 14,000.  It borders a Ponderosa Pine forest and it is very flat.  treehugger.gif

 

I want something whimsical sounding, lyrical or something that instills a sense of wonder and whimsy.  One thought I had was Whispering Pines.  But I don't know that it is what I want to end on.  I want to give DH some different ones to chose from.  Thanks in advance.flowersforyou.gif

Oh, and I am also starting a business called Mountain Sprouts Rentals....for renting baby equipment.  Not sure if that would fit into a name or no t.

Soo exciting!! Congratulations.

 

Naming your farm is such a personal thing, it's like naming your baby! :) My husband and I both brainstormed a list together. Then we asked our friends and family to vote on them. Then I even posted a poll on the Homesteading Today message boards. Funny thing is, we ended up with the very first name I ever mentioned- the name I loved that I had named our home school many years before, LOL! We call our homestead Rootsong Farm. I just happen to love the word "root" because I think of nature AND of my family putting down roots.

 

But anyway, if you're drawn to nature names you might want to surf baby name sites. Like, Google "nature names" or "hippy names" and jot down any words that appeal to you. Then see if any of them sound wonderful with the word "mountain". Or not. You could even Google "farm names" and be inspired. Start a list and ask your husband. It's fun! :)

 

Be sure to tell us what you guys decide on. :)
