Those Home Grown Place Names

Do you map out or record somewhere those names you have for places that you, and maybe only a few other people, know? Growing up we had names for various parcels of property that our grandparents or parents had slowly acquired over the years. Usually those names were for former owners. One name may have been for a former tenant on the property–I’m not exactly certain.

And one name was a severe mangling of the name of a previous owner. It took me a while to figure that one out.

But record those names. It may even be helpful to map them out as well.
