    For the little ND buckling coming to our farm in April. Hubby and I are undecided, but here's our short list.

    Athens
    Achilles
    Admiral
    Affinity (call name Finn)
    Apollo
    Ares

    We're looking for something strong that he can grow into :D The chances of him having a "badgerface" and/or blue eyes is pretty good. Stacey's using A names this year, so if you have any suggestions, go ahead and list them. Please and thanks :)

    I like Ares best and then Affinity (Finn). I'm lazy though - 3 syllables is just too much of a mouthful when I want to call/scold. lol

    For Admiral, you could always call him Mir or something like that. Have you thought about using the poll feauture to see which name is voted on the most???

    My husband just crushed that.

    He came home and said "Hey, how about Atreyu? From the Neverending Story?"
