    We have 2 new chickies, a Partridge Cochin, and a Standard white Cochin. We were inspired to add a couple cochins to our flock after meeting our neighbors black Cochin who is named Georgie Fatpants. My kids would like to name ours with similarly "hefty" 2-word names that reflect their fluffiness and ruffly bottoms when full grown. Does anyone have any ideas for us?
    We've come up with a few words that could be worked into a name, such as _____ Dumpling, or ______ FancyPants, or ________ Muffinbottom or some variation, but we are totally open to new ideas! We also like names that both begin with the same letter, such as Lucy-Lou, or Bleu Belle. Thanks for your help.

    FYI, to minimize duplicates, our current flock includes:

    Olive
    Olympia
    Columbia
    Tagen
    Emma
    Belle
    Penny
    Mertz
    Larkin and
    Butter

    I have a white Cochin named Butterscotch feel free to use that. Or you could use something like Buttercup or...........

    Thank you DuccleLover! We have a Buff Orp named Butter, so I think it's a little too close....but I appreciate the idea!

    I've always entertained the idea of getting a heavy breed and sticking with Scandenavian names. Here are some I've considered:

    Olga
    Helga
    Birgit
    Freya
    Lars
    Thorvid
    Bjorn

    Etc

    Here's some brainstorming inspired by the ideas already mentioned.

    Darla Dumpling
    Bertha Bloomerbutt
    Maxine Muffinbottom
    Ruthie Rotunda
    Freya (or Fergie) Fluffypants
    Winona Widebottom

    Be sure to let us all know what you name them after throwing around all the ideas.

    Thank you Scratch'n'peck! This is exactly what I was looking for! I especially love Winona Widebottom. :) I think that will be our Partridge Cochin......and our Standard white will be either Darla Dumpling or Ruthie Rotunda. :) Whichever of those that are left may be used for our Brahma. Thanks again!
