WHAT’S IN A NAME?

A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

To help identify the meaning of terms, words, prefixes and suffixes commonly found in house names especially, but not solely, in the UK, we’ve come up with this list of definitions that may help in your search for that special name for your house. Equally it may help you make sense of an existing house name.

We’re always looking to add to this list as well as our master list of house names, so we’d ask you to Contact Us and send us house names and meanings of house names from around the world - remembering to state from which countries they come.

Some of the terms given date back many centuries, having their origins in Gaelic, Celtic, Old English or even Old Norse languages. Over the years, many have undergone gradual, but in some cases drastic change, and may now have a number of different meanings.

The definitions given are not exhaustive, but aim to show the more popular and relevant meanings used in the art of house naming.
