What is there in a name? Well, it means a lot to most Bajans when they name their homes. Most of them are nice. But then they are others that just sound crazy.

I love the name of Gloria’s house (Glenglo). It is a combination of her name and her husband’s name (Glendville).

  1. The house I lived in for over 15 years has a very interesting name as well. It's a house that was built in the 1920s and was owned by different members of one family. Sadly neither the immediate former owners nor us have ever been able to figure out what it means.

  2. Ann, the house I grew up in had a wonderful name, Junesta. And every house my aunt moved to since has carried the same name.
