When we're not busy alternating to various other themes (e.g. pirates, etc.), our more traditionally styled haunt is referred to as 'Revenant Manor'.

The name appears on the mausoleum, the column signs, and various other signage/labels:

As for the reason, it's basically just that I've always loved words, and have a special affinity for those that feel as though they have their own inherent character. :)

For the haunt name, I wanted something that had a menacing, or dark quality, but that also wasn't too "on the nose". The word 'revenant' always struck me as having those qualities...surprisingly, the Wikipedia entry seems to do the word more justice than the traditional dictionary entries:

"A revenant is a visible ghost or animated corpse that was believed to return from the grave to terrorize the living.[1] The word "revenant" is derived from the Latin word, reveniens, "returning" (see also the related French verb "revenir", meaning "to come back")."
