    Default Names for new goats UPDATED Chosen Names

    We got two new goats today and both are girls. They came without names and I am having a hard time coming up with good names. All our goats that come to our farm with no names are named in pairs (Bonnie and Clyde, Thelma and Louise, etc) and I would like to stick to this with our new goats. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks everyone
    Britt

    And the names are.....

    LUCY and ETHEL

    Thanks everyone

    Two suggestions:

    1. Charlotte and Emily - after the Bronte sisters

    2. Ruth and Naomi -- after the mother-in-law/daughter-in-law of the Bible

    Flower names? Lily and Rose. I had a Nubian named Ophelia. It just fit her perfectly. Opal and Pearl. Jade and Ruby- gemstones.

    Thanks again

    If you want some unusual ones, how about the Rhinemaidens Woglinde, Wellgunde, and Flosshilde from Wagner's Ring Cycle? You could toss in Brunhilde for good measure. Somehow "floss" just seems to fit a goat.

    A search through the Greek and Roman goddesses should also turn up some interesting ones.

    I will take some pics today and post them. I have to admit they are pretty cute even though I originally wasn't that fond of floppy eared goats.

    I name all my barnyard animals (chickens, goats and a PB pig) after my friends. They get a kick out of it...

    My neighbor wanted me to name my 2 goats Barbie and Q so when you called for them they would come to Barb-B-Que! As they are pets, I opted not to go that route I'm terrible at names, my first goat's name is still officially Baby Goat (Baby for short)

    whatever you name them be sure it "calls" well when you are hollering for them to come.
