Is there any name for a girl's parents' home in English language? I'm asking this because my language has the term "Maika," which connotes her (married girl's) parents' home.
American English doesn't have a specific word for this. A person visiting their spouse's parents' house would probably say something along the lines of:
- My in-laws' house
- My spouse's parents' house
- [Spouse's name]'s childhood home
...depending on context. (Someone's parents' house may not be their childhood home, after all.)
There's no differentiation in how a married person (male or female) would refer to their own parents' house, as opposed to a single person. You'd just say "my parents' house", or "the house where I grew up", or something like that.
I've heard the concept referred to as "the natal home" - referring to your family's house at the time when you were born - but I don't think that's common colloquially. I think I've only heard psychologists and the like refer to it that way.
In Australia any adult (male or female) would refer to the home they grew up in as their "family home". This is usually used formally as in:
"My parents are selling the family home".
"We are celebrating Christmas at my wife's family home".
Informally, or if the parents no longer live in the childhood home we would just call it the 'parent's home' or 'Mum and Dad's place'.
"My parents are preparing their home for sale".
"We are celebrating Christmas at Mum and Dad's place this year".
I do not know of a single word with this connotation.
English word for Married girl's parents' home (in Hindi it is called 'Maika') is...
"Parental abode" or "Maternal home"
