I am horrible at coming up with names for our animals and since so many of my blogging friends have the best names for theirs that I figured I would pick your brains for a bit.
We don't have any reasoning for the names really. I thought about going the "themed" route in picking names each year as it seemed not only like a cute idea, but actually a good way to remember who was born when (i.e. 2009 was the year of the herb names, 2010 was the year for TV show names, etc.). But I'm not that original.
Here are the names of our critters, past & present:
Cats past* and present (Meow*, Slurp*, Cheese*, Stupid*, Crackers, Evil Kitty, Black Susan, Outside Kitty)
Dogs past* and present (Nero*, Bubba*, Killer*, Luna*, Aragon*, Moonhsine, Harley*, Charlie)
Goats past* and present (Nettie, Ishtar*, Joyce*, Annette, Moo*, Cloud*, Stormy*, Chop Suey, Pan*, Pickles, Lily, Herman)
Equines (Ms. Melman and Nugget)
So, without using names we've already had on the farm, how'd you like to start tossing out suggestions?
The new goat is a Mini-Saanen (1/2 Pygmy and 1/2 Saanen) milk goat. She's not only mini, but on the thin side. No other "odd" things about her like extra nipples or anything, so "Nips" is out of the question I suppose. Can't really say much more about her except that she's a sweetheart.
Not looking for names for her little buckling because I'm still unsure what we're going to do with him (or his "package") yet. Because you know, as soon as we name him it will be almost impossible to get rid of him then. And I don't want another buck.
