There is always the historical link! On the Legacy world records you can look through the names for ideas. I have always enjoyed entering the names of the cattle in the LaMancha listings. The Robertson family had the most unique ideas for names. I always smile at " Hard to Find" and "Found Again". As for G's some they used were Gretna, Gertie, Go Go, and just simply Girl. They registered quite a few animals with Gold or Golden in their name and most were registered with the color Red. ( Which always makes me think of dun). Some with Good as in Good Luck, Good Will, etc. Goodness, you could almost do an entire year with Good if you think on it by adding, Day, Night, Morning, Work, Good-ness, Book, Bye. Or expand it. . . . . . Good as Can Be, Good for the Eye, Good for the Soul, Good as Gold. Oh my Goodness!! I could really Get Going on G! Giggling!
Thanks everyone. Yes I do the same re google irish names, well most of the time but it feels as if we just dont have the 'oh thats a great name' feel, and its only ever after the fact
Howdy Judy - we named our show dogs with names derived from race horses only to find over the years, trouble in remembering who was who. Its always who was that again (after naming pedigree name) to asking for the pet name. Response then is 'Oh of course'
So we chose not to do that with the moos. Paddock and Pedigree is the same, finished with colour (Stud: Name" Colour in Irish) Maybe this restricts us a little ?!
