A Rose By Any Other Name....

I am wanting to give our acreage a name. Somehow it feels like naming this little area will help solidify its identity as a particular spot on this planet, giving it more substance and gravitas. Ideally the name will carry connotations of our goal of prairie restoration, as well as bringing to mind the peace that living here brings us and the plants and animals that share this spot with us.

I started playing with some form of "Windswept" when we first moved here, but lately I've decided that has a slightly negative feel to it. So I changed it to "Wind Dance" but something still isn't solidying. "Prairie Haven" came to mind, but that seems a little banal. And there I'm stuck.

Something with "meadowlark" in it, since they nest in our back 5 acres? What else could I use to symbolize our little bit of prairie?

If you have any ideas or suggestions, please let me know. Inspiration isn't striking me, so I hope by putting the question out into the blogosphere, it will grace someone else and then sneak in the back door to us. At any rate, I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

What about Kanza Kottage? Tallgrass Grange? Winding Path House? Just a few brainstorm ideas. :)
