During the Middle Ages, house names held a lot of significance and were pivotal in identifying their residents – especially in smaller villages. Italian house names not only described the building but the residents themselves.

While there is much less significance attributed to house names today, naming your house is a great way to showcase your family’s values and highlight some of the more interesting features of your house. Choosing names in a foreign language – including Italian – helps communicate cultural ties to your unique heritage.

Below are some of the best Italian house names to showcase your cultural heritage while helping your house stand out from the rest.
