Some homes are the primary setting for — or even major characters in — the stories of our lives. The place you grew up, your aunt’s house where you learned to swim on muggy summer days, your first apartment in the city — each one is a star that holds in its orbit countless important and lasting memories that make you who you are.
It’s no wonder, then, that people sometimes name their lake homes. We’ve named our boats for centuries, and a quarter of us name our cars. Why not honor a key player in our life’s drama with the dignity of a proper title?
Here in New England, we know many historic homes and grand estates on a first-name basis, such as the Old House at Peace field, the Adams family home in Quincy, or The Breakers, the Vanderbilt summer mansion in Newport, R.I. But it’s the modest vacation homes dotting beaches, lakes, and ski slopes that are more likely to be christened with a name today. Perhaps it’s because these are the places most dear to their owners — where some of the most enduring memories are made.
Coming up with an original name that everyone likes is the hardest part. But once you do, these Etsy artists can craft your sign out of wood, metal, and many other materials.
