I am trying to come up with some themes but I am not good with this sort of thing.

Do you have any themes you have used in the past or have thought of that you wouldn't mind sharing?

Well, i've mainly gone with "L" and "D" names in the past-but I think i'm going with the food theme with what ever does Scrumptious has. I'm thinking of naming one "Simply Irresistable" or "Simlply Delightful" or maybe even "Simply Delectable". So, I suppose i'm sticking with the S for a name so far-but I am chaning it up some. As for Kadisha, i'm sticking with "K" names and naming her doe-if she has one- Kadalily, Ki-Ki, or Kadbury. My folks usually put the initials of the dam and sire before each kids name so they can remember who the kid is out of without having to look at registration papers. Of course on the above names I wrote i'd probably only call them by the last word in their name.

We kind of have a royal theme going. The goats are Lady, Princess and Prince. The Dogs are Duke and Duchess. We will probably name any kids using the does names first. So we would end up with Lady So-n-so or Princess So-n-so for doelings. Bucklings will probably be Prince Something or other.

I think I will go with a tree/plant theme for my goats since I am starting with Maple. My chickens always have old classic grandma names (Clementine, Camilla, Cordelia, Corneila, Elenor, Penelope, Amelia).

We have several different naming themes. It all depends on what the dam and sire's name is.

Flicka's kids will almost always start with F. Her dam line is an F line....there is now Flicka, Faylin, Faith, Fancy, and Fashion Bug(I think). Her sister is Fallon. Or if I don't do an F name...it will be a horse name like Ruffian, Rags to Riches, ect.

My new doe that I will hopefully be getting, Just Fooled You, will have a different theme. I will try to have cute little sayings like that for her kids names.

Libby's kids will have L names. Her kids are Lark and Lexi. Lark will start a bird name line for me. Meadow Lark will be her reg. name. Her kids could be Robin, Raven, Wren, Finch, Chickadee, Swan, Prairie Falcon, Snow Bird, ect.

Bella's kids will have B names. Brooklyn is starting a city name line. Like Paris(that is the only one I have thought of...I haven't look any more).

Cass' kids will have CS after our herd name. So Lark's reg. name will be Dover Farms CS Meadow Lark. Brook's reg. name will be Seigneur Farms CS Brooklyn.

We never really go with a theme. We wait until they get a little personality before we can pick a name that suites them.
This year we are only naming the goats we are keeping because we do not want to get attached to them.
This years names.
Tucker Jo.
Daisey May
Gracie Lou
Anna Belle
Penelope ( just fell in love with this name and I just had to use it, but now we might not keep her :tears: )

I seem to use a different theme for each group of animals. All my goats have country music stars names( faith, mcgraw, reba, gretchen, trace and the rest) My horses have a Patriotic names( Freedom, Liberty and Star Spangled, not sure what new foal will be) my rabbits are all mostly named to somehow relate to my Fave football team, Baltimore ravens. My dogs I usally use mytholagy names( thor, apollo) So I think you are only limited by your imagination.

my themes were sort of started for me, harmony (my first alpine) was given to me, and from there i went into music names. We have had (from harmony and harmony offspring) symphony tempo tango lyric solo melody trill rhythm and seranade (sera for short)
Callys registered name is calomel which is a mineral. We now have cyprine and cinnamonstone. I have also sinse purchased callys sister chromite and will continue the theme with her. JuJu i have named her one doe kid tilleyite, tilly for short, im going to continue to name that line after T gemstones. Rubys kids will be my A gem line, sinse there anrt many r ones. there are tons that start with A. Dixies kids will all have d names. and i have two does who are from the music line.
