    I love naming new babies!!

    So let's have it, what names do ya'all have for this year??

    I have two that will have non registered kids, so I don't want to follow the letter of the year.

    First doe is Moon Beam
    Second doe is Zydeco (which is a form of American Folk Music. )


    Would love ideas!!!

    But I will also be sticking to the themes my girls already have
    REALLY nice cars, such as Porsche

    I don;t have any names thought of but I made a deal with a girl I work with that if she could name each of my 9 goats within 10 minutes that I would let her name the first kid born.....so I guess I'll spin off of that.

    I don't have specific names picked yet, that will have to wait until I see the babies. But I'm planning on using the theme of Greek gods and goddesses.

    We haven't found any themes yet. But since our first buckling has what appears to be an odd looking white lightning bolt on his face the kids and I decided to name him FLASH.
    Our doeling's name is MADISON.

    I'd love to have a theme though. When I had rabbits we had Thelma and Louise, Buster and whatever his girlfriends name was <LOL>.
    We have 2-3 does due at the end of Feb, so we gotta come up with some more names!

    I like to use human names.
    Originally I was going to name kids with the first letter of mom's name example: mama Joselyn had daughter Joely last year & other J names I came up for their future kids are Josie, Jessa, Janna, Joey, Joel, Jazzie, Jasmine, Jade, Joanie, Jessie, Joy, Jaclyn.
    Another thought I have is rhyming names like Pixie could have doelings named Trixie or Dixie.
    Other names I was thinking of this year are: Payton, Piper, Penny, Gaige, Fae, Faith, Felice, Fern, Fritzi, Suzie, Sadie, Sage, Sydney, Danette, Kasidy, Kloe, Krissy, Alana, Alexa, Alina, Molly, Madison, Maggie, May, Mavis, Misty, Mel, Twyla, Tayler, Tippy, Hayden, Hilda, Heidi, Hymn, Honey, Harmony, Raina, Rave, Rikki, Roz, Rosie, Lilah, Bandit, Dotty, Dash, Dame, Jewel, Dana, Aspen, Joesa, Jolene, Julia, Deja, Cedar, Timber, Averil, Diva, Rita, Raylene & Justine.

    With Milky Way, I think I'll keep a "food" thing going (maybe Butter Nutter for the doe I keep?), and Jenny, being her registered name is Zelda, well, we have to go with old-school video games for her kids, so...I have no clue...

Thats what I have so far

    I also want to name a goat Heavenly Nutella, Nutty for short! Im totally addicted to Nutella so im naming a goat that, just need to wait for the perfect colored doe!

    Im thinking of also starting a alcoholic theme to lol...I have SOOOO many ideas...and not enough goats
     
  12. Well for your doe Moon Beam, you could do stargazer, or some of the constilation names? Just a thought?
    Zydeco is proving to be a little harder for me??? hmmm, songs maybe? I don't know the music, but an example is..........I have a doe named Little Liza Jane, which is a country tune. anyhow ??

    As for me, I might do the country song theme fro Liza's kids, No Clue what I'm gonna do for the rest? Spices maybe, it's really endless. BUT the one I do know, is when My little Hope kids, if she has a doeling I will keep her and name her Keepin Faith!

    I've been trying to think of names cause I have a doe due next month...My dogs have been 'food names'.. Coco, Gnocchi, and Tofu... and my does are Feta and Mimolette ..
    but I'm REALLY a Dr. Who fan... (British sci-fi) Do you think Balakafalata is too long? I've got to keep working on this. I've noticed some other Sci-Fi fans .... Ashley I think?
    Anyway, keep the ideas coming... it's really helpful.

    Oh! I forgot to say.. I really like the alcoholic idea too. (Cause no one drinks red wine like I can)... But that is a HUGE resource to draw from~
    Martini, lemon drop, Cosmo.... I could go on for a long long time...

    Whats your herdname? I dont think Balakafalata is too long, depending on the herdname, but thats a super unique name, you should try it!

    I have SO many ideas...Im going to also do a song name theme, so like all my favorite songs, and just songs that have a pretty name I plan to do...Lets see.... I wanna do a food theme....and ummm....a movie theme...

    So heres all of mine

    Hawaiian( Kanani,
    Food(Nutella)
    Flowers(Lilly)
    Cars(Porsche)
    Songs(Hey There Delilah)
    movies(Twilight)
    Alcoholic Drinks...I know this will be a long list but you can make it into a branch of themes.

    Maybe state names, or city names, something that sounds really good

    I KNOW theres more...lol Ive had alot of free time

    I too like food names for some reason, all my pets have them :)
    I have a dogs: Porkchop, Baked Bean & Poosie Noodle. A cat: Peanut. All the lizards/ snakes/ fur balls do too!
    My goats all kept the names they came with, but I'm sure the kids will have food inspired names...
    Bacon? Butterball? Garbonzo? :)

    How could you forget me AND take the only decent "B" name? (Blink might be OK, but...yeah....)

    milkmaid I'm not addicted - I'm in love!

    We did a snow theme this year because the kids were born just before and after the biggest snowstorm we have had in years. We used Blizzard, Snowstorm, and Snowbell.
    I have compiled a document with probably more than 200 names organized by themes; here are some of the themes.

    Astronomy
    Weather
    Precious stones
    Bible names
    Favorite books/movies
    American Indian names
    Insects (cute ones!)
    Music
    Nursery tales
    Famous people
    Fruits
    Flowers
    Herbs & spices
    Trees
    Birds
     
  19. You will have to give me some good wine names. My newest buck's name is Moscato, so I will be following that with unique wine names for his kids! I'm not much of a wine drinker(gives me a H/A) but I love me some beer!

    I too have a doe with a 'food theme' Marcia Mellow (aka Marcie) who is due first...am thinking what names to use for her. I have a few in mind but will see what we get before deciding. I'm always open to new ideas though, with the confection/candy theme....I like Moon Pie, Butterscotch, Milky Way (HEHE), the more ideas the better, you never know what the kids will look like! :dance:
