The name Solitaire was chosen because it can mean a single set diamond and solitude or loneliness. It was originally named Areb after the nearby river. It was renamed by the wife of the original homesteader, Willem Christoffel van Coller, who purchased the farm in 1948. Combined, these two meanings create the definition of being unique, or a one-of-a-kind and a precious, but solitary place
