I found it interesting that the plantation in Beloved was called Sweet Home when it seemed anything but that. However, it seems that many plantations were given comforting and misleading names, despite the terrible conditions for slaves. For example (I found some more names with a little research): Welcome Plantation, Felicity Plantation, Golden Grove, and Belle Alliance. Pretty deceitful if you ask me...
