After months and months and MONTHS of trying to come up with a name we have bitten the bullet, made a decisions and filled in the form. We considered a nice Gaelic name or even something French (I’m quite the francophone if you are wondering!) but we were wary of constantly having to spell the name out over the phone!

In the end we combined that fact that there’s a well in the garden and our memories of a solitary rowan tree in the front garden of our first house and came up with the name Rowanwell House. We consulted with friends and family and no one hated it so it stuck!

Forms are in to the council so hopefully, fingers crossed and all being well, we will start appearing in Royal Mail address lists before too long.

And yes we will be planting a rowan tree in our new garden. Obviously.
