Name your Hood

Have you heard about the Name your Hood project about to be launched? (in 8 days to be exact – on 30 June)

Watch this video to learn more or visit the official website here – Name your Hood.

The Name your Hood project is an interactive initiative which allows the public to submit and then vote on names for clearly defined neigbourhoods in Cape Town. It’s about igniting community pride. It’s about giving the people of Cape Town a voice in the places that really matter — where you live, work and play.

The City Centre of Cape Town will be the starting point of the exciting project to rebrand the hidden areas of Cape Town and make them more user friendly and unique! Here is a map of the various pockets of the City Bowl that will be named by you!

To register and offer a creative name of your own or to find out what others in your community have come up with and vote for them visit the Name your Hood website. After a three-week naming period all hood name suggestions will be put before a panel of architects, planners, musicians, local celebrities and historians. This panel will create a shortlist of the best names chosen for each hood. From this shortlist the best name for each hood will then be decided by public vote.

She writes about travel, health, beauty, fashion, decor and family... but not food (unless it's food she's eaten made by someone else) as she is a hopeless cook. She only wakes up early for 2 things... a red-eye flight to somewhere exotic and early morning game drives. She has just finished an extensive home renovation and would prefer to never see another box again. She's never met a chocolate or glass of bubbles that she didn't like!

  1. Responding to your call on Cape Talk regarding the naming of several hoods in Cape Town: Could you please send me a more detailed map of the hoods to be named. I want to submit suggestions that would historically or otherwise fit the particular hood.

    Thank you,
