So what are your name themes for this coming kidding season? We are naming ours African names because the ND originated in Africa. Here are some of my ideas :) There are many more, I just can't think of them right now :roll:

Malkia (Queen)
Selenkay
Elican
Minyara (a small city in Tanzania)
Manana
Mazwaya (The pale one)
Ngorongoro
Savudi
Timbavadi
Kenya
Rihanna (not an African name,but I'm Rihanna's number one fan :D :love:)

I go with themes that match the dam's name. My does name is Blue Bunny, like the icecream brand.
So I'm going to name her daughters after sweets.
Like Chocolate Bunny and Maple Fudge :)

Last year, we named the babies a name that started with the same letter as their mom's name. Rosalie's girls were name Razzle Dazzle, Rumor Has It, and Rainy Day. Jane's twins were named Jitter Bug and Joker's Wild. It was a fun theme, but this year, we have decided not to follow a theme because I have a huge list of names I like that I want to use but they follow no theme. Also, you can only have so many goats that have "R" as the first letter in their name. Lol. Love your names!!

[sniff] :tears: If I was breeding my girls this year, then I would have done a music theme for all the kids, to go with my herd name of 'Goat Song'. But no velvety nosed kids for me this upcoming spring... Next spring though, I'll pick up where I left off, and then I'll do my musical themed kiddos!

I love hearing other people's themes! My does each have a theme too, and I'm hoping for lots of doelings so that I can cross off a few names on my list! (The boys won't follow a theme, just whatever we feel like.)

Margo's theme is "lost/found," or "looked for" (Margo is the name of a runaway in one of my favorite YA novels: "Paper Towns" by John Green). A few names that I have stored up are:
Zulu (lost asteroid that was later found)
Nolli (also a lost/found asteroid)
Edney June (a heirloom apple that was found after it was thought to have gone extinct)
Mollie (also an heirloom apple)
Bunny (from the book "The Runaway Bunny")

Emmeline is Margo's daughter (taken from A.A. Milne poem "Before Tea"). I'm not sure if I'll breed her this year, but her theme is suffragists, and I'd love to name her first daughter Christabel (the name of Emmeline Pankhurst's daughter, and a suffragist as well) Other ideas:
Olympia
Daisy Elizabeth
Rosa May
Nellie
Olive

Peanut's girls will follow a "legume" theme. Most of the names on my list for her future offspring are the names of heirloom beans. Such as:
Lina Sisco
Nora Day
Belabela
Viola
Birdie
Penny Rile

And I'd like to name Alice Spring's girls after other Australian cities. Some ideas:
Adelaide
Anna Bay
Augusta
Lara
Sydney

I'm a huge name nerd. I LOVE thinking up names and themes. I have 10 1/2 pages of name and theme ideas, some that go on for about 4 generations. :) I like to have lots of options that that I can pick one that fits the kid's personality.

Nice name themes everyone :) We had a set of 3 doe kids a few years back and named them Razzle Dazzle, Razzmatazz and All That Jazz. Their sire was named Roger Dodger. I really liked those names but we sold Roger Dodger so we will not be naming the kids those themes anymore. :( We have a doe named Little Tots Estate Jorja Peach and if she has a doeling for us we are going to name it Lost Prairie BL Sweet Home Alabama. That will be the kids registered name, it's barn name will be one of the African names that are listed. :thumb:

I was looking through a magazine at work the other day & decided that some of the men's cologne names would make great buck names. This past spring for I did like Calico Patch Farm where the kids first letter of the name was the same as the dam. This year I think I'll just do whatever sounds nice without any rhyme or reason.

Corona Of The Sun: Moon stuff or Sun stuff
Cookie: Any treats that relate to cookies

I may ocassionally use my bucks themes.

My kid name themes have followed the dam's name so far.

Nutmeg has had kids named:

Almond Joy
Hazelnut Splash
Walnut
Filbert
Macadamia
Coconut
Pistachio
Sweet Peanut

When we run out of "nut names" we can go with spices! With her having 4 at a time I go through a lot of names!

Gilded Lily has kids named after flowers:

Buttercup
Laurel

Lots of possible names for a long time with the flowers!

Might go with color like names for Tawny's kids.

Decided to start coffe names for Hazelnut Splash's kids.

Faith's kids will probably be named one word emotion kind of names like Love...Joy etc.

I have a short enough herdname I also put the sires initials in front of the kid's names. It makes it easy/quick to remember sire from initials and dam line from themed names.

:laugh:

This year I have some themes in mind for a few, and will probably pick off my big old name list for others.

I just picked up a doe called Latifa, whom is "Tifa" for short. Reminds me of a character from Final Fantasy. So her kids will have FF names. I really want a buck out of this cross, whom I'm considering naming Vincent Valentino (one of my favorite characters.) I like Shiva for a doe, one of the aeons that Yuna could call in FF10. I'm going off on a nerd tangent now...Lol.

Odin's kids will likely have Norse mythology names. Considering Loki for a boy right now, although any at this point will be wethered. Probably will branch into Greek or Egyptian mythology...just ancient mythology period. I bred him to a girl with an Irish name, so I'll probably scour some names from Irish mythology for them.

I don't think the kids ever have a theme they just pick names they like for them. We have one doe family that started with Faith, her daughter is Joy and her daughter is Hope. We will keep going with that but everyone else just gets whatever name the kids like for them.

Feel free to take some of mine if you like any of them :thumb: I will edit my post and put the meanings next to the name. I don't know all of the meanings though.

I do name themes by the year. I'll have to decide what theme to use after I see how many bucks/does we have, and what they look like!

I was thinking about doing that, but when i realized that i like to abbreviate on the calendar where i track stuff, it was easier if everyone's name had a different first letter.
