For those who are interested...I need a name for a boarding/training facility that is on the coast (US eastern coast) and in a very tranquil setting. Lots of large oaks and Spanish moss, long dirt roads of farms and plantations, with the sea within a five minute drive of the property. I want something that evokes the area or the ocean but it needs to be very "classy" and sophisticated. No "my pretty pony" style name, please. Love anything that can reference something neat/unusual.
I am at a loss and need inspiration! Any suggestions?
I've read COTH forums off/on for years and everyone always gets such great name suggestions! Help!
Quiet Times Farm
Serene Sea Farm - Serenity (from above)
Calm Seas Farm
GALENE Acres (Galene was goddess of calm seas)
Fair Winds Farm
Free Will Farm
Peaceful Pastures Farm
Ocean to Forest Farm
Your description makes me wanna put the yaks on the truck and head to Beaufort (NC, Bue-fut, SC). I love the salt air! Yeah, so that's my 2 cents: Saltair.
Finzean, they grow mosquitoes so big down there, they're not allowed to LAND at Columbia airport!
Cold Harbor (or warm if you prefer, lol!)
(The name of the local bay or inlet) Farm
HLB, does the barn/facility fit its surroundings? If so, Serenity Plantation? Not sure if you're allowed to call something a plantation if it's not...
Tranquil acres or stables
Blue horizon farm
cois means "coast" and dara means "oak tree."
Cois means "coast" and dara means "oak tree."
Calling something a plantation down here gives me the willies. Maybe that's just me, though.
Rabicon, what language is that?
It's the name of a house in ireland. Not sure the language itself lol but I believe it's gaelic
It can also be shore of oak.
Heck, folks around here call 5-acre properties "ranches", so I don't know why you couldn't call some place a plantation, even if you're not "planting" anything!
On the lighter side...
Agony Acres -- a small farm named by the guy who lived next door to a (noisy) dog kennel.
El Rancho Pequeno -- imagine the ~ over the n -- "Poor Little Ranch", I think.
I always like the name "Fortuna Farm". The name of a place I rode in Minnesota.
You are very close. Not sure why it's not the same translation as I am getting. There are four different dialects, but it doesn't look familiar. "Dara" is oak tree in French, I think, but not in Irish. If you wanted to say 'coastal oak', it would be more like "cósta dair". Maybe it's French?
Sounds like a wonderful place to be. All I can think of is
I think it is an old form of gaelic that is not exact. A different dialect from darach.
Whatever you end up picking, try and make sure there isn't another farm (within a reasonable distance) with the same name.
Serenity Lane Farm/Stables
Serenity by the Sea Farm (too long???)
Acorn to Ocean Farm
Salty Oak Acres/Stables
maybe "Training Centre" or "Boarding and Training Centre" (US version of course) instead of Farm/Stables/whatever.
I'm sure my names are really bad, but maybe it'll help someone else's imagination!
I like Salty Oak. I was trying to think of something with "Halcyon" in it, but I like yours better.
