I think vintage film stars' last names. There are plenty of male and female actors to choose from: Garbo, Lombard, Kelly, Bogart, Flynn ...

I think the names from Beatix Potter's character's would be sweet names for new lambs...Jemima,Flopsy, Mopsy,Cottontail, Tiggy-Winkle, Mcgregor, Peter. You could even use her name ie Miss Bea and Trixie.

Adult libations!! Gimlet, Cosmo, Whisky, Martini, etc

Celestial bodies would offer a lot of choices.

How about state based names - Virginia, Maine, Dakota, Orleans, etc.

Oops just saw that I suggested one that had been used. How about cars, after all yarn transports us on a journey, Prius, Mercedes, Porsche, Camry, etc.

I realized that suggesting you name the lambs after the Presidents' wives, that you also may get male lambs, (I was thinking only ewes), but you could give them the President's names. Could be some fun research.

I think that a great theme would be legend of King Arthur and the knights of the round table (Lancelot, Guinevere, Merlin, Mordred, etc.)

Country Music Artist Names (new and old school): Taylor, Hunter, Rascal, Faith, Loretta, :-)

Sorry....I left out the r in Beatrix Potter's first name! AND meant characters (without an apostrophe) :) I also shared link on Facebook.

How about the word sheep in different languages? Like Schaf - German, Oaie - Romanian, Shaap - Dutch etc.

I think "All things fluffy and soft"....


Marshmallow, Feathers, Snow, Seafoam...

Indulgence on Ravlery.com

How about musical terms. Some examples, soprano,alto, octave,minuet,symphony,waltz, melody, conductor , harmony. You could also include instruments like harp or trumpet, etc.
I hear the first one was born today! Congratulations!

Historical social reformers, like Upton (for Upton Sinclair), Dorothea (for Dorothea Dix), Ida (for Ida Tarbell)...

How about names from New England foods: triple-b (Boston baked beans), bubble & squeak or Brunswick Stew, chowder, cranberry shrub, gingerbread, lime rickey, muddle, oyster pie, pease porridge, rarebit , succotash, spoonbread, syllabub, etc.?

How about characters from the Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones) Series?
Tyrion, Eddard, Arya, Danaerys, Jon Snow, Jamie, Sansa, Ygritte, Brienne.
Just don't use Joffrey. He sucks.

I'm globalite on Ravelry.

Inspired by my recent trip out west -- Native American group names.
i.e. Arapaho, Apache, Chickasaw, Cheyenne, Hopi, Kickapoo, Mohegan, Navajo, Pawnee, Pueblo, Seneca, ….

I like classic rock and roll artists or song titles. Wouldn't Aerosmith or Queen be fun names?

I like fruits! Love what you are doing!

I think it would be interesting to name them after different fiber crafts they inspire and different elements within those types of crafts.

Beatrix Potter Characters: Flopsy. Mopsy, Peter, Tiggywinkle, MacGregor, Nutkin, Jeremy Fisher, Hunca Munca, etc.

Vegetables! Love your blog and your book! I've enjoyed reading them so very much.

How about 14ers (14,000 ft tall mountain)

Gray, Long, Pike, Cameron, Castle, Sunlight, Lindsey, Windom, Huron...etc.

How about fabric? Velvet, Gingham, Calico, Denim, Taffeta... I gathered the names of about 40 kinds of fabric that I would be more than happy to share by email.

I saw my original suggestion had already been posted (I think it just hadn't appeared when I submitted it). Instead, how about philosophers? Aristotle, Socrates, Ptolemy, etc. If you Wikipedia it, there are a ton!
