Here, for your amusement, is the list of names:
Suggested by Laura~Peach is George
Suggested by my Evil Sister are Fluffy Ewe (F. Ewe for short), or Curly
Debbie in CA ran sobbing from the room rather than name the sheep - it seems naming her skunk was all she could handle
Karate Mom suggested Sherman, which reminded me of Bullwinkle cartoons
Georgie suggested Beckham, or Becks for short - she seems to think the sheep needs more sheep
Kim-D likes Baa-by, said kinda like Bobby - say that one out loud
MaBunny voted for Ewenice - bwahaha!
Trisha says Corn-Wallace works for the sheep
Jill of All Trades suggested Clarence, which I can totally see for this lawn ornament
Ellyn thinks it looks like an Andy or a Daisy
TSAnnie insisted on Farley
Mumple cracked me up with Baabra Kennedy - another one to say aloud
Warty Mammal was complimentary, but offered no names - I'm guessing she's at her book limit at the moment
I let Georgie sneak in with a last one, since it came to her in a dream and all - Bam-Bam ... or Velma
The runner up is Fluffy Ewe! The kids and I all loved this one. Evil Sister is a genius. She even played to the judge.
The winner, though, is Corn-Wallace! Trisha, of In My Dreams I Can Talk, will be getting a stack of pre-read books. How much fun is that? Honestly, as much as I love F. Ewe, I absolutely adore Corn-Wallace. So thank you, Trisha, for naming my sheep! Baaaaa!
For those who didn't win, there's still time to enter my other contest. The deadline is tonight, midnight wherever you live, so drop a line at that post letting me know how you'd use cards you design yourself. I'm afraid I might not have been clear - use your own design in what ever way you see fit! There will be two winners in that contest!
Thank you, everyone, for offering such creative names. I love them all! But Corn-Wallace now lives in my front garden.
Until I write again ...
