Default Deciding on a farm name

I'm not a very creative person and could really use some help on this one. I've been trying, unsuccessfully, to think of different names for my farm.

Some details about it that my help.

I have all commercial does right now, slowly shifting to registering % boers.

I seasonally sell hatching eggs for chickens and ducks. Will hopefully add geese and peafowl to the mix eventually.

Other notable things
- I live near the enchanted highway, a highway with giant metal sculptures every few miles.
- also near antelope creek

Any ideas would be appreciated!

enchanted farm.
I don't know I had a hard time deciding on mine as well. I settled on Anderson ranch. One Anderson is my Maiden name so I wanted it to mean something and 2 Anderson is common and easy to remember. The easy to remember is key I think. Since you have other critters I would have it end in farm or ranch that way it can be used for all the critters you raise or if you would rather keep things separate then you could do something like enchanted kids or something kids, or something boers or what not........the more I think about it the more I like the enchanted part! It's unique but still easy to remember

Antelope Creek sounds like a neat name to me. Or, maybe 'Enchanted Hills' - or 'Enchanted Plains' if you don't live in the hills.

I named my farm after the Lord of the Rings - one of my favorite books. I just started naming all my goats after Hobbits, and we live at the top of the tallest hill around, so before long I had 'Shire Ridge'.

We just named our farm after the funny way our rooster crowed! It really did sound like he was saying 'Rise and Shiiiinee'. The poor guy.

Is there any quirky animal on your farm you could use as a mascot? Or perhaps a funny story that occurred on the farm?

I named my farm after a character from one of me and my moms favorite movies, Under The Green Wood Tree by Thomas Hardy. Great movie, very cute with some super funny scenes!!

Thanks for all the ideas! I'll think about them all for awhile, though antelope creek ranch is out . That's what my neighbors farm is called
