Imaginative Place Names
I call my neighborhood, Quail Ridge...because of all the quails scooting about on the roads and fences. This time of year it is definitely Mockingbird Hill.
Here's just a few other names my brain thought would be quite outstanding if you actually lived in a meadow, glen or manor.
Meadow Sheep / Sheep Meadow sounded too plain.
Troublesome Goat Ridge
Thrush Manor / any word in front of manor sounds solid and reputable.
Dog Barking / well, I bet it would work in England. You have to spell it - Dogbarking.
Fencington / again - put an "ington" on the end and it works - at least in England! Marketington, Housington, Farmington, Riverington, Castlington...hard to roll off the tongue, but works!
Ok...getting a bit "loonington" now........have to stop.
