Our scrub goats had fun names. Cupcake gave birth to the twin doelings Itchy and Scratchy. Then the feral doe a red spotted was named The Wild One, she gave birth to a single doeling named The Other. So we had Cupcake, Itchy, Scratchy, The Wild One and The Other.
Not goat names but a friend named her antwerp roos Twirpy and Wyatt Twerp. We have two buff brahmas that go broody named Brahma Mama and Crazy Mother Clucker (and when she has chicks it's Crazy Mother Clucker and the Psycho Chicks).

I named my first LaMancha girl Nubbins (Nubby for short) because of her tiny ears and small teats. Names just seem to happen as I talk to my critters.
My newest little LaMancha buckling is a white & pale tan mix color and as he follows me around whilst I do chores, Benny is the name that seems to fit.
One of our tomcats was black & white but the colors were arranged on his body as if he were wearing a tuxedo. He had impeccable manners. His name was Sir Thomas and I always told him he was always appropriately dressed for any occasion.
I do enjoy choosing names, seeing what emerges.
We have a gogurt named after the yogurt kids eat. I have two chickens named cow and chicken. We had a goat named almost, nehi, Dr pepper and Mr pib... Actually all the sodas. I named a boer mom had runway because that's all she did run away from you. mom had a nubian doeling named baby leg, Mr bean and tuff n enough. Yeah I could keep going lol
Every drop of blood, every bitter tear, every bead of sweat, I live for this. - Hatebreed.
We had a litter of four little black kittens named, Who,What,When and Where. We had another litter of three named Q-Tip, Kleenex, and Charmin. Their mother abandoned them, sadly, only Kleenex lived. I have a cat now named Cheez-It.
The goats all have standard type names. Unless you count the buck we had named BigWig for the curly bunch of hair on his head. The first time I saw him it made me think of the rabbit by that name in Watership Down.
LOL everyone! Our barn kitties are Wyld Thang & Barn Potato, he's fat & lazy.
The rest have dull names like Girlie Neicey & Purrball.
The buck's real name is Auto Repeater but he's my Big Baby Automobile.
Friends had hogs named Hammy Swinette & Menacum Bacon.
I love cockatiel dundee. hahahaha! Makes me want a cockatiel.
I don't have any funny names for the goats, but I'm tempted to 'name' our boer doeling with lamancha ears 'nubbins' now. She's not staying here so I feel I could name her what I wanted until her new owners name her 'for real'. Or maybe I'll keep it for one of my own.
I do song names recently. My alpine doeling is Long Tall Sally, and my boer doeling I'm keeping is Dixieland Delight. My yearling boer buck is SJE CountryView's I'm a Ramblin' Man (barn name Waylon). Waylon kinda got his name because he lets out the most sorrowful wail whenever he wants attention, almost could imagine him singing a sad country song.
My yearling alpine buck is Giesler's Sharp Dressed Man (though he doesn't have a ZZ top name... Maybe I should've called him ZZ... darn, didn't think of that until JUST now. hahah!) He's got the least 'tude of ALL my goats on the farm, so maybe a ZZ top song wasn't the best choice for him.
Dh and Dd13 are the clever ones with names here. We have a chicken named Led Zeppelin. (who can tell me why?). And two guineas. The girl had a bad leg so I started calling her Peggy. Then Dd13 named the boy Stew - so now the guineas are Peggy & Stew.
My daughter has grown and moved on, but we sure did have fun naming the babies every year. I will soon be asking for her help with new kiddies. In the past be have had twins Peanut and Butter, Marshmallow and Pudding, quads - Zip, Zap, Zing and Zoom, triplets - Tic, Tac, Toe and Raspberry, Blueberry, Huckleberry out of Blackberry. We usually pick a theme for the year and go that direction.
Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass...
It's about learning to dance in the rain.
