Rancho Sin Nombre?!
If you are lucky enough to have horses on your property, why not give your ranch a name? Realtors will say that naming a property will increase its appeal to buyer prospects and hence up its value.
Naming a cookie-cutter home in a trailer park may seem pretentious, while a name on a ranch seems matter-of-course. We remember places, as we do people, when we are formally introduced. We’ve all seen the classic gate arches constructed of timber and iron, emblazoned with a name that says “you’ve arrived.”
Family surnames are popular, but perhaps too personal to ground a home for posterity. Also, for security and privacy sake, it may be ill-advised. A physical characteristic of the property is an option – Like Robin’s Roost, or Whispering Oaks.
We say, have fun with naming your ranch. Be creative, and whimsical. Tell a story. Emblaze your choice on a plaque, on that classic arch, and below your signature on your stationery.
