    Our newest were named by my kids: Katniss, Ginny, and Churchill.
    I have a middle school son reading Hunger Games (Katniss), a younger son into Harry Potter (Ginny) and a teenage daugher obsessed with world history (Churchill)!

    The last time I let the kids name our chickens, one ended up with the name "The Magic Chicken of Alexandria". We called her Magic.

    I like naming them with a theme in mind. We named ours after Dragon Age characters.

    Barred Rock - Wynn
    Easter Egger - Merrill
    Australorp - Morrigan
    Brahma - Andraste, bride of the maker!

    I love themes too! All of our are named for herbs/spices. Basil, Sage, and Thyme. I also have two new girls that I haven't settled on names yet but I am thinking maybe Cloves and Saffron.
