How to Find More Biblical House Names

To create our list, we identified as many “house names” as we could find in the Bible — but you can create other Biblically-inspired house names if you’d like an option that is a bit less literal.

Get inspiration from aspects like Biblical figures (the Apostles, Abraham, the Tribes of Israel, etc.), stories (Noah’s Ark or the Garden of Eden), or holy places (Bethlehem, Cana, etc.).

You can combine words from one or more of the categories above, as well as those in our list, to create a name.

For example, combine the Biblical figures of the Apostles with a word from our list, like “Apostles’ Camp” or “Apostles’ Realm.”
