    So all my babies born here next yr will be given a outer space name. Prefer something that is really in space not names from star wars and such.
    So Far for girl name i got
    Nova, Eartha or Terra, Andromeda, and Star??
    For boys
    Comet, Orion, Pluto, Moon Beam and Jupiter, Galaxy Warrior
    I do plan to use all the planets im just not sure which sex some fit with better. So for all you space nerds i need names. And i don't mind put a name with it for the registration like Galaxy Warrior
    Full name could be Joy Bell Farm Galaxy Warrior

    out in the goat field
    My goats are named Luna and Stella, and I had a wether named Cosmo. Some other space names...Pluto (I think this would be cute for a little goat), Aurora, Oberon, Aster/Asteroid, Meteor, Galaxy, Celestria/Celesta/Celest. You could play with words, like words relating to the sun: Sunspot, Sol, Solara, Sunny.

    Shoot, just the moons in our solar system. Jupiter has 67, Saturn has 52, there's a whole lot of things in space to name kids after. If you go to www.solarviews.com you can learn about individual places. Then you can have names like Jupiter Storm, Seas of Europa, Io's Aurora, Calistos's Pride and you know what they mean, even if no one else does.

    Sorry, fixed the link.
