How do you choose a funny name for your house?

  2. Your name. Did you have a fun nickname at one point – something you don’t mind making public! Could you use this in the funny name for your house?
  3. The house itself. Is there a quirky or playful aspect to your home – a wonky roof, a colorful door, old, new or needing renovation. Turn those features into something fun – use your imagination.
  4. Combine some of these ideas together you have the makings of a great funny name for your home.
