Indian house names, naming a home, names for grahapravesh, hindu home names

Like naming a baby, finding a suitable name for your home is equally important as the name stays with the house address for a lifetime. An auspicious house name will surely bring the fortune and luck the home dwellers require for a happy living. A unique name will surely highlight your home in a crowded residential locality and brings an amount of individuality.

A general guideline while naming a house is not to have two houses with the same name in the same locality. This will rise to confusions for address seekers and will also result in mails, milk and other essential commodities being delivered to wrong address. So when you have decided on a name, survey the locality to see that the name is not in use.

It is common among Indians to name the house after holy cities, hindu gods, daughters, sons, wives name etc. When naming the house this way, you prefix the Sanskrit name for a dwelling place such as Nilaya, Nivas, Bhavan etc with the name. Example Lakshmi Nivas, Ganesh Nivas etc.
