Does your home has a name? I was stalking some seaside homes in my area (near Newport, RI) and I loved all the beach house names. They are written on small decorative plaques, and rustic signs, and got me thinking about giving my house a name!
For example, Cliff Cottage.
And Cliff Haven. They both sit, well, on a cliff, overlooking the ocean, the beach house names reflect the location.
Cozy Cottage does look wonderfully cozy and is surrounded by blue hydrangeas. The house name seems to express the home's beloved characteristics.
The Lookout, the perfect house name for this abode, overlooking marshland and water.
Although Seascape is in dire need of TLC the house does offer a sweeping view over the sea.
A French beach house name plays with words, "la vie" meaning the life. An abode that belongs to a French philosopher or poet?
And a nautical house name. Seadog, a term for a very experienced sailor. The owner perhaps?
Or Vitamin Sea? Who couldn't use a daily dose of that! And as you might have guessed, this home is not in my neighborhood. It's from a place where palm trees abound! Then below I rounded up some great beach house names that readers have added in the comments!
My Galveston house is named Little Caper, because I love all of the Cape Cod homes.
I have a beach house built in the 1930,s in a sleepy little fishing town in Northern New South Wales in Australia its name is GULL COTTAGE.
We've named our house in Florida...Casa Viola...the purple house and YES...it IS purple! by Lavender Dreams.
I loved my father-in-law's name of his house that was across the road from the Atlantic Ocean in FLORIDA...he called it the "Sea Gem".

The Lost Lobster, The Little Pearl, Family Tides, Kite Tails & Sand Pails, Happy Days
Playing'Hooky, Sea's the Day, Sea to Shining Sea, Sand in the Toes, A Shore Thing, Anchors Away, Seaclusion.
