Goats, gripes, and grasping for greatness
Goat names thoughts 
7th-Nov-2011 12:50 pm
I am considering names for the upcoming kid crop, and I have a few choices out there so far. Anyone who has ideas is welcome to field them here, too.

Jared: Sashimi, Jessie, Mona. The expectation here is a whole lot of black, hopefully with some racing stripes.
Cookie: Dahlia, Anna. I'd like to repeat Anna's successful twinning from last time (Gyre & Gimble) but this time with girls.
Loki: Alys, Talla. I'd like to repeat Alys's first kid, Apollo, in either male or female.

If I have a boy kid on Feb 2 (the first possible due date), he's getting named Murray. His twin brother will be Phil, or his twin sister will be Andie or Rita. Yes, I know that I mostly do book references. This is too good to skip, though.

I'm also looking at the following names as possibilities:
Beka, Ari, Owen (Price of the Stars)
Kaylin (Cast in Shadows)
Darien (Troubled Waters)
Oscar Zoroaster Phadrig Isaac Norman Henkel Emmannuel Ambroise Diggs (Wizard of Oz) I think a goat named Oscar or Isaac would be cute.
Damian (Damiano)

I like the name choices and how almost all lend to easy twin suggestions. Even the Wizard could have a Dorothy or Ozma.
The poor goat named after the Wizard is going to need a spiffy nickname though...or you could follow Mom's footsteps and just refer to him as "Harold". *Grins*

I like the idea of Oscar and Dorothy. *No one* would get it. Ha!

I know they aren’t book related unless you are talking dictionary but given Cookie’s interesting temperament and Anna’s coloration if she twins girls might I suggest Xanthrop and Ondfule (I might work for Alys given her personality with the yellowish red coloration she seems to kid with Loki).
Xantho- when referring to chemicals refers to yellow in color, it has been used as a derivation for a yellow, or spiteful woman and Ondful going back to 1200ish meaning envious or spiteful people as a class.
