250+ Best Sheep Names
When choosing sheep names, it’s easy to use regular people’s names. But why limit your fun? Give your sheep evocative names! Famous, mythological, and, most importantly, memorable sheep names that are easy to shout out loud! Characterful sheep names can come from Nature, arts, science, philosophy, and literature.
- You don’t want a name with too many syllables when calling sheep. If the name is too hard to understand – the sheep probably won’t respond!
- Steer clear of tongue-twister sheep names (they’ll annoy your peeps and prove counter-productive with your sheep).
- Don’t name a lamb the day it’s born – give it a week or two to express its character, then choose an appropriate name.
And – when the time comes – use the following sheep names to help!
