    I need names for my new Damara sheep! Photos are on the photogenic board ...

    I have a few names in mind but I am interested in what guys think. I'd like to name them by theme, but havent got anything particular in mind yet.

    Okay so I know I asked for names but ... I named them :oops: :shrug: :greengrin:

    I looked around a bit on the internet cos I wanted very much to name them by theme - my goaties I name by the letter of the year and at times it does get a bit boring.

    I got a list of suggestions, things I might like, then I spent some time around the sheepies today to see what their personalities are like. I went with names that would look good and are kinda fancy to go on pedigrees, because I eventually want to get into reg'd animals; but they are the kinda names that can be shortened to a call name too.

    I went with a Casino theme. Introducing:

    Pacqio Gambler's Chance - because she's the one who we arent sure about pregnancy status - so took a gamble buying her. Chancey for short

    [​IMG]

    Pacqio Madame Vegas - because she's a bit of a wild child party animal, and very much a little miss or madame. Vegas for short

    [​IMG]

    Pacqio Red Roulette - actually I dont know why I gave this one this name - just seemed to stick. Ru for short

    [​IMG]

    Pacqio Casino Queen - because she is the matriarch and the alpha ewe. Queen for short

    [​IMG]

    The list of names I came up with for lambs (some of them match the mum's names, some are generic):

    BOYS
    Gambler
    Dealer
    Ace of Spades
    Blackjack
    Casino
    Chip
    Jester
    Joker
    Russian Roulette
    Double or Nothing
    Elvis

    GIRLS
    Take a Chance
    Lucky Chance
    Chance Your Luck
    Lady Luck
    Queen of Diamonds
    Queen of Hearts
    Royale
    Rummy
    Miss Vegas
    Moulin Rouge

    I also came up with good names in Astronomy, Shakespeare, Magic/Fantasy, Music, Fashion/Designers and Alcohol. So at some point in the future I will use these themes for a batch of lambs or two.

    I've already got a 'Snow' family - snow, snow white, snow bell, snow ball, snow drop, eidelweiss, snow flake ...

    Already got a Sweet Pea too (I think everyone has got a Sweet Pea!)

    But you are so so right - the 6 yr old ewe definitely looks like a 'Sheila' :shocked: lol
