    I'm about to get two ducklings, both male. One is a cayuga and one is a pekin. Does anyone have any suggestions for names?[​IMG]

    I'm generally a fan of naming them after their traits. My duckling had a really hard time getting to her feet and she's still a big ol' klutz, so we named her Wobbles. But I'm a fan of general cutesy names like Sugar Pea, Wiggles, Gunther, and Matilda. :3

    But I agree with Amykins, maybe wait until you get an idea about their personality. My first duck names were pretty lame, blackie, blue, whitey. You get the idea. Now I have smooshy, squirmy, Odin (1 eye), Baby Huey, Piglet, momma B and her baby B's, daphne, dopey (he's a very smart and beautiful black Swedish mix but has a very crooked face making him look like a dope.). Some don't have names because nothing has come to me yet.

    SMOOSHY! That is so cute! What's the story behind that one?

    I wish I could claim that name but my daughter was skyping with a friend online when I brought this little duckling in her room. I asked them what we should call it and friend blurted out "SMOOSHY". Of course I loved it. That's her in my avatar. She was an Awesome duck but sadly a predator got her a couple of months ago.

    I agree with naming after traits. We had a drake that used to "snap" (gently) and we called him "Snap Bean" - which eventually became "Sneapy" - what fun for you! My daughter loves the name Piper for a duck.
