Default naming a beach house... (need suggestions pls)

we have a house about a block off the beach just south of myrtle beach and want to give it a name and have it made up on a wooden sign and hang it near the front door. we want it to be kinda catchy with a beach or lake theam( we have a lake out in back aswell). our last name is leon so i wouldnt mind if that was used either. not much on the web on house naming so any ideas would be great! thx-

I have generally found that houses, boats, and other such things name themselves. Your only job is to listen to it when it tells you what its name is. Perhaps I am just too lazy to think up names for them.

It would be helpful if you state what your profession is, kids and if it is a dedicated vacation home or rental.....but as moorhen suggested "it has to earn its name"

but I will give it a try, my Doc just scribed me some Percocet for a trick knee....so bare with me.....

In Normandy Beach many of the houses are named after Sinatra songs (Summer Winds). I have to agree that the name will just come to you. Several other houses in Normandy Beach have forced names, and it's all good dawg, but when your home is christened by you and your wife over a nice bottle of wine in the yard, after something really funny or special happened, it is much more unique and special.

My house is named "the poop deck" after one of our best memories as a family at this restaurant in the Bahamas, and because...., well, nevermind.

If you believe the hurricane prognosis for future years, consider these names:

GOING, GOING, GONE

GONE, BUT NOT FORGOTTEN

nah, we're actually in the original section of the community on the front row, my grandfather has had a house there since 1978. I mainly end up in the inlet when I'm down, the beach itself doesn't do too much for me.

"Leon Lodge" or "Leon Den" with a picture of a lion on it. Or, if you want to be confusing use a tiger.
