In some areas of the UK I've lived, all houses have numbers and a few also
have names
(which are viewed by many as an affectation).  In rural districts it is
very rare for a house
to have a number, instead it has a name.  In the town in the UK where I
currently live,
maybe 30% or more of houses have ONLY a name.  Perhaps some of those 30% had
numbers once, but if they did nobody uses them or knows them now.  I'm
pretty certain
that one a street around the corner from me, half of the houses could never
have had
numbers: the numbering sequence and the age of various houses shows this
8/Caerhuan and 9/Homeleigh on Napier Street are much more recent than any
of the other
houses on Napier Street (with the exception of Y Gorlan, which probably
replaced some
earlier building).

Housename may be useless where you live but for some of us it is essential.
