What's in a name, anyway? 

The name of your beach house is more important than you might think. After all, it's the first thing people see when they view a rental listing. The name of a beach house can tell a story. We love when a beach house name conjures up a certain feeling, mood, or image that can make you smile. 

Below are the names of a few Topsail Island rentals, along with the picture we imagine when we hear them! Scroll to the end of this blog and we will give you a few tips for naming a beach house of your very own.

When two nurses were deciding on the name for their beach house, Recovery Room was the obvious choice. The nurses wanted a place to relax, leave their worries behind, and recharge. Topsail Island is the perfect place to do just that. And their rental, Recovery Room, is designed around that theme, with calming decor, thoughtful details, and a comforting mood you will feel the moment you step inside. 

How to name YOUR beach house:

Here are a few tips if you are naming a beach house: 

Make it personal

Like some of the homes above, it's fun to name your home after something (or someone) special. 

Make it funny

We love a clever pun. There are so many words that are associated with the beach (sea, dune, wave, crab, sun, sand, tide, and more). A good play on words makes for a fabulous beach house name. 

Google some ideas

There are plenty of great ideas out there to inspire you. Just Google keyword phrases such as: 

    • How to name a beach house
    • Cool beach house names
    • North Carolina beach house names
    • Beach puns
    • Fun and creative beach house names
    • The best beach house names

Try a quote or song

Do you have a favorite line from a song? Maybe it would work as a name! 

Alliteration is always fun

There is just something about a few words strung together that all start with the same letter that people love. 

Evoke a mood

What does a beach house mean to you? Try to think of words that conjure up that image in your mind. Words like relax, rest, smile, happy, play, family, friends, breathe, or exhale are all great starting points for a beach house name.
