Separate names with a comma.

I don't know what to name my pullets!
Any suggestions would be appreacheated !
What do they look like - I live to chose names based on who or what they look like
I named one of my pulets pearl. She is a white cochen.
I have to see them before I can name them. I have all different kinds of names for my birds:
Rice N Beans
That leaves 6 without names.....
I have six look-alike buff Chantecler hens and one that looks strangely like a buff orp.
They all answer to "Hey, Chicken."
My kids named my hens "Frank" (now Francine) and Elizabeth. Not very "chickenish"
I have a four year old (was three when we got our chickens) he named the four Golden Comets: Ring, Rosy, Pocket, and Posy, from the nursery rhyme.
The others are Goldie (BO), Blackbeak the Pirate Hen (Delaware), Bella (Faverolle), and Blanca the rescued Leghorn.
These hens live at my MILs, so I had to keep my normal wild creativity under wraps. I think she still thinks naming chickens is a little... romantic of me . She's into it now, though.
My only concession to my personality is Blackbeak
When we hatched chicks last year, my son named them things like 'Racecar' and 'Turtle'. (we had first a rate and then a dog attack that killed all our chicks)
I foresee the new chicks all having (masculine) Thomas the train names...
OK, you asked for it!
Some of our names are Sunny, Lil Black, Red, Surprise, Chestnut, Marble, Zoomer, Chess, Phyllis, Diller, Honker, and Goldie.
My next will be Sophia
Dh is having a difficult time deciding between Parmesan and Marsala:/
