    Give yourself a few days and names will come -- do you have favorite movies, books, tv programs, characters, etc? Are you looking for "human" female names and, if so, what about names of women from your family?

    I'm sure you'll think of something of your own, but here's one theme for you. Leona, Tinny, Dorothy, Munchkin, Glenda, and Crowe. Have fun with naming your chicks.

    I agree on favorite books or shows, I really wanting to do "The Walking Dead" themed names but my kids vetoed it. Instead, we just have random names and it kind of drives me nuts. A friend of mine is an English teacher and named all of her fish after Shakespeare characters. One of my kids wanted to name 2 of the chicks- Soup and Nugget, but I convinced her that was a bit morbid.

    Thank you. Yes I want some names from movies or books. If you could list some of your favorite chick names, that would help. I have been having trouble finding names that match each of their personalities.

    Are you a Steele Magnolias fan? Lots of lady names with lots of different personalities there-either character or actual actress names? Or do you like a particular actress a lot, you could go with different characters she's played? Favorite author? Heroines from his/her books. History buff? Historical heroines?

    I have been into names that end in "i", so beware [​IMG], but here are some I have been thinking about/using for my chickens:
    Mari, Kali, Sunni, Bobbi, Alli, Kari,
    and some non "i" ending names-
    Violet, Amber, Ginger, Nellie, Penelope, Virginia, Kit
