Picking a Name Today!

I'll pick a name today for this litte girl, so get in any last minute inspirations! I'll update later today with a video of her and her chosen name from the list in the comments of this post. Add some more!

Here is the contest: This little gal needs a name! Let's make it a contest again, too! Suggest as many names as you like, leaving one per comment (each comment is a contest entry) and my favorite will be picked. The winner will receive their choice of either a signed copy of any of my books or a free workshop here at the farm! Enter away!

If you don't have any name ideas but still want to win a free book or workshop pass, then how about spreading the word about this little farm's newest book, properaly named: Cold Antler Farm from Roost Books!

Minne, or Macha (preferring Minne, may as well pronounce it Minnie since it IS a lamb), Celtic Goddess of fertility, sheer physical force, childbirth, death, cunning, and a few other appropriate attributes. Minne is also a germanic goddess associated with infinite unions, and dedication. Seems appropriate for the start of your new flock.

April 3, 2014 at 12:07 PM  
Blogger R'Eisen Shine Farm said...

Macha or Minne (preferance for Minne, and pronouncing it Minnie as it is a lamb). Celtic Goddess symbolizing "Macha (also Mania, Mana, Mene, Minne) – goddess of cunning, death, sheer physical force, war, sexuality, fertility, dominance over males, childbirth, wisdom, overcoming enemies, and past lives." Minne is also a germanic goddess symbolizing eternal unions, strength and devotion. Seems appropriate for new breeding stock, and shepherd.

tine-fire in Gaelic, also, is it possible to say "a tine on a pitchfork?" I figured since fire is refuge even from the wettest, coldest April, a lamb born in that month should be named fire.
