help name my home (give away!)

If you trace my family linage not too far back you will find everyone lived in a "named" home. Town folk knew who were talking about if your mentioned the house's name. Grand names like "Old Magnolia Plantation" and "Harris House"... funny that is the same house just depends on if you were family or hired men on what you called it. Up until my mom's generation my ancestors lived on plantations, farms or sprawling race horse acreages when my grandparents fresh from the Great War moved to town and settled on a 1/2 acre.

I live in a small Texas town just a block from the "Town Square" well within the city limits and just a short jaunt to the Big Cities. Yet it feels so country listening to the roosters crowing in the dawn, smelling the fresh plowed gardens of the neighbors and staring at the stars at night while the coyotes howl in the fields and woods just across the road.

Anyways, I want to name this place.
Here are some things on the property that may help with the naming...
Wild and Native TX Pecan Trees
lightening struck hollowed out pear tree
biggest Sycamore tree in neighborhood
almost completely surrounded in iris beds
wild climbing roses in pink, white and soon yellow 
(our family's rose brought by my 5th great grandmother on the Trail of Tears)
2 medium sized gray barns that match the house
red flowered trumpet vine on the fence

Enter a suggestion to be in the give away!
I will post the prize in a bit
