Should we name our Property? Is that too Grand?

As some of you may know, we've been working on an addition on the back of our house.  You can see the original sunroom coming off in this video.  And you can see pictures of our tree coming down  and the trusses going up on Facebook.

We've lived in our house for over 3 years now.  If you would like to reminisce with me, you can learn about our house's backstory!  I've been doing a lot of reminiscing in the last few days!  But, if you read that post, you can find out our original plans for this house.

We are working on those plans now.  Mike built a full-length porch in the front a couple years ago.  The front is absolutely gorgeous. 
It is missing one thing, though.  It's missing one of those residential address plaques.  I remember having one at the last house.  But, it was probably as old as the house!  We haven't had one yet at this house.  Or, actually, maybe there was one on the original face when it was still brick?  At any rate, we need a new one.  I would love one of the custom address plaques with a fancy estate name.  (Heehee, we have grand visions of our 1.25 acres!)  But, we haven't come up with a good name yet.  

Do you know how you go on vacation at the beach or mountains or somewhere and all of the homes have one of those name signs at the front of the driveway?  Names like "Bliss Acres" or "Breezy Dreams"?  I've always joked that we should name our property something and get one of those signs.  We still haven't come up with a name yet, though.  We need something that suits all four of us.  And then we can print it with our address on a personalized address plaque for the house.  I really want a sign up by our big, crazy looking bushes at the front of our "estate" as well, though.

Now, what kind of name, though?!?  Hmmm. . . . Jaycee says it should be "Happy House".  Her first choice was "house".  So, "Happy House" is an improvement.   How about "Superhero Hideout"?   "Adventure Acre"?  "Manic Manor"?  "Blue Skies and Fireflies"?--That one would only work in the summertime, though.

Guess we'll still have to think about it! What would be a good name for an acre in a somewhat rural area that houses a BASE jumper, a fashionista who would rather be on a boat, a LEGO freak and a little person who is into everything?  Ideas?
