I have been studiously avoiding naming the doelings. Every time I started to think about names, some part of my brain (the loud part) rolled in - " LALALALALALA". Honestly? I HATE having to name things. I am of the mind that the perfect name will appear to me in the middle of the night: the room will get cold, I will be surrounded by a light green mist with spooky, but benevolent, music in the background, a deep, booming voice will say, "Go ye and name yer doelings...". It hasn't happened yet, and I'm feeling the pressure.
Do I name them both in the "A" group, defining their arrival as 'firsts'?
Do I name them after herbs? (Been there; done that - Sage/Chicory)
Do I name them after trees? (See above - Linden/Hickory/Banyan)
Do I name them after deities? (Ditto - Juno/Freyda)
Do I name them after deli sides (Pickles - hehehe, Carolyn)
Do I go into seclusion for three days and come up with: Daisy Matilda Freeborn Shepherd?
Do I scar them for life and name them: Piznut and Crumbsnatcher?
I decided to go all, "I am the breeder of goats, sit up and notice my farm-iness".
