    Usually developers use names that the locals can relate to (in a positive manner of course). ie any rivers etc around. This is usually a strategy to attract owner occupiers!

    cheers

    Ok, here goes….. approx 80 blocks in country victoria, the subdivision will have access to the state forest, I am looking at doing an 'upmarket' subdivision ie, nice entry, nice open spaces, etc etc. Will probably suit 2nd/3rd home buyer. Its a fairly built up area surrounding the land with alot of gum trees around. Hope this helps. Thank you!!!!

    Hi Jude, Have you thought about who will be producing your marketing material for you? Is there someone who will be coordinating the sales strategy. Often the name will come from these people and the process of determining your target market and unique selling benefits.

    What word or words summarize your offering and are also appealing? When someone says I live at 'X' what image does that create? Are the gum trees unique to your estate? Also developers often use a locality so that when marketed the audience knows exactly where 'x' is?

    Thanks but no, Bendigogum or gumbendigo, its soooo hard……..  I've looked at different types of gum trees etc (botanical names etc) and thought I could plant some in the subdivision, but still nothing….

    Intrigue – Yes that all makes sense, I've just started looking into marketing, advertising etc. I actually had a name that I quite liked which was a native plant but someone said it sounded like a retirement home. So thats gone….. As I want an upmarket subdivision, I'm therefore looking for a classy name to suit. There are no gum trees unique to the estate.

    Bendigo is a major producer of Eucalyptus oil:

    2 species used are

    "Bluegum Rise"       blue mallee gums (Eucalyptus polybractea),

    "Peppermint Gum Rise"        narrow leafed peppermint gum (Eucalyptus radiata var. Australiana)

    Which explorers discovered the area (Batman? Hume? Hovell? etc)

    Maybe after some of the first settlers in the area?

    They're a good starting point – even for  street names.

    Another historical reference is Dai Gun San (Big Gold Mountain) in reference to the Chinese gold miners,

    Hmm… gum just reminds me of teeth and dental hygeine. Of the description you gave, the most visually appealing word was FOREST. You mentioned open spaces, which also relaxes a person. What about taking advantage of the fact that it will have state forest access, with all it's open spaces…

    ideas like FOREST SKY…

    or the opening in a forest is called a glade, THE GLADES…

    In Latin a forest is SALTUS…

    have fun..
