How Do You Name A Cave? That is not an easy questions to answer!
Naming your cave is a necessity if it is located within the Campo, (countryside), in rural Spain like ours. There are no roads or streets only dirt tracks, and miles of them. Tracks that do not show up on any sat nav or map. Hence the quickest and easiest way the postman can identify you with your address is by naming your cave. Don’t get me wrong…. you will not get a delivery once a day or even once a week. Certainly not! You go to the local post office (which could actually be located in a butchers shop, tapas bar or a local business office) and sort through any post they may have. Apparently, I have been told that neighbours, (and I say that in the widest sense of the word), will be asked to pop the post round to you if they happen to be passing!
Our original idea for a name for our cave was a good one we thought , Cave of Dreams’. We came up with the name because the web site is called http://www.makingdreams.me. We truly believe that the cave will become our dream home and we are absolutely in love with the whole project. So…. It sounded just about right to us. Cueva de Suenos our cave of dreams. However, looking on the internet I found at least 3 caves in the same area with that exact name. We would be looking for trouble and lots of confusion too so… we had to rethink.
Lots of suggestions came up and cast away just as quickly. Then I thought about the style of the cave I was looking for. I want white, smooth, curvy walls, nothing straight, nothing rough and only white. How about ‘The White Cave’. Immediately I went back on the internet and found nothing in the area that was similar. Or….how about ‘Cave With A View’?
It certain does have a view all around and one that we love. This started the ball rolling, we had lots of thoughts for a name. Now comes the hard part, which name to choose and which name would be appropriate for our dream cave?
The White Cave – La Cueva Blanca.
Cave With A View – Cueva Con una Vista
Cave With Views – Cueva Con Vistas
Cave of Poppies – Cueva De Amapolas
Our Cave – Nuestra Cueva
Cave of Susanne – Cueva de Susana
