Whats in a name

There is a lot in a name { the boy named Sue comes to mind} and as I struggle to give the new animals real Scottish names I am going to change Heathers name, just because we have a lot of Heathers following this blog and I would not like to upset anyone. So fingers crossed that none on you are called Custard, yes I know its not Scottish but I gave up with the cow, unless I get a better idea or someone leaves me a better idea, she will be called Custard.
Now I also have a lion, mouse, bear, rabbit and pig to name....any ideas.

Happy Birthday wishes to Eva who will be having a lovely day with her boys and maybe a little cake too.

These new images look amazing cant wait to see the rest - I'm sure my bank balance can tough lol.
How hard must it be to name all these little babies???
Well here are my quick thought names:
Daisy the cat.
Honky the pig.
Big Ears (in the nicest cutest possible way) for the rabbit. Joshua the lion.
Dizzy the mouse, and Baggsie bear.

So predictable some of these, but thought it was a giggle!
All the best choosing so many names.

Hi, beautiful new stamps, can't wait to see the others, I have a few suggestions for a name
Lion- Regan (regal)
Rabbit- Dana (goodess of fertility)
Bear- Donovan (warrior)
Mouse- Vaughn (small)
Pig- Cinnia (beauty) or Penelope, just because I like 'penelope pig'
I don't know whether they are male or female, so these names might not fit! but I wanted to join in the fun anyway
thanks

how about Crowdie?

Crowdie is a Scottish cream cheese. It is often eaten with oatcakes, and recommended before a ceilidh as it is said to alleviate the effects of whisky-drinking. The texture is soft and crumbly, the taste slightly sour. Like cottage cheese it is very low in fat, being made from skimmed milk.

harvey the rabbit... apparently after a old film but I would LOVE to have a stamp named Harvey after my son ;0) I know he would be thrilled too as he loves stamping.

Munroe Mouse, Porridge Pig, Shortbread Bear, Haggis Lion & Tartan Rabbit!

For the pretty cow = Cranachan.

Jeanette said...

The new line is adorable. I love the name Custard. My Mum was from Scotland and our desserts often had custard so to me it is Scottish! Of course now that I am trying to think of great names, my mind goes blank! How about Haggis?

retiredheather said...

Hi from one of the Heathers. I think it was cute to have a cow named the same as me but how about calling the cow BagPipes. That is certainly a Scottish name. Sorry if I spelt it wrong but spelling has never been my strong point. Great images that will be fun to color and use.

Jo said...

You could always call her Kyloe. Scottish people used to call their highland cattle by this name in years gone by..

I love cows... love em... love em.. love em!!Don't really know why my hubbie won't let me have a lickle one.. :(

Alison said...

Oh I can't stop thinking of names now what about Bonnie ( meaning Sweet & Good)

Madge said...

I am so excited at these new stamps, and also my complete luck at being chosen as a guest designer I have done a special thank you card to Sugar Nellie on my blog - excited is not the word. Anyway the tease of things to come and some potential names. Here are some ideas I have :
Bear - Arthur (celtic word for bear)
Mouse - Cheddar (just cos its cute!)
Rabbit - Butterscotch
Pig - Bacon (or is that being cruel!!!)
Lion - Daniel - king of the lions.
I will see if I can think up any more. xxxx

Annelies said...

Maybe you could call the bear: Artair...just found on the internet that thats the scottish name for bear.

Jo said...

Back again...

lion, mouse, bear, rabbit and pig eh??

Regal Reich - celtic for King (lion)or Alvin (also celtic for noble friend)or Blair (from the plain land - lions live onplains..lol)or even Regan (noble)

Guenevere (mouse - white lady - mice are usually white.. lol)or even Gwenny for short..

Lavena (for the rabbit, meaning 'joy;.. who didnt find joy by having a bunny as a child?)

Gitta (for the bear - meaning Strong)

Rosco (for the pig.. I remember someone 'cuddly' called this on the tv when I was younger.. lol)

Brenna (for the pig.. just because I like the name..haha)

Hope this helps x

Hugs Debbie x

Emily said...

:) my little girl is a Heather! How about Isla the mouse, Roary the lion?

Vicky (Angeldrummer) said...

I have put my thinking cap on for you and as you wanted real scottish names the following came to mind

cow - Grace - After Grace Darling of the famous lighthouse rescue.

lion (orignally thought of changing the braveheart to this after the carebear cousins)but decided on Charlie after one of the many kings of Scotland and the famous Bonnie Prince Charlie.

mouse - Mary - After Mary Queen of Scots - a traditional Scottish name.

bear - Bobbie - after Robert the Bruce one of Scotlands Greatest Kings. And also Robert Burns - Scotlands undoubted greatest poet.

rabbit - Flora after Flora Macdonald who helped Bonnie Prince Charlie escape.

pig - Fiona - after Fiona Campbell the leading lady in the famous scottish film Brigadoon.

I hope that these help I know that the stamps may look more male than female, but they could be moved around. Otherwise you could go for clan names that are also first names like Murray, Lewis, Cameron etc.

hugs Vicky x

Julie said...

How about Rory (or Ruari) for the Lion and Rabbie for the Rabbit?! :o)

Have you thought about DaisyBell for the cow!

Robbie Rabbit,
Wallace The Grizzly Bear,
Penelope Pig
Leo Lion (Original I know but I like it:lol:)
Mousketeer for the mouse

Absolutely loving the really cute animals :)

Taniaj said...

After asking the family this is what we have come up with, I like 'Coo' for the cow but DH likes Cuddy.For the Lion we like 'Mac Tavish' for the mouse 'Wee-One' for the bear Stuart or Busby, for the rabbit 'Neeps' and lastly for the pig I did think Sassenach (by the way i am from Yorkshire but have Scott as a surname !!!!!!)but then thought that might be a bit stong so how about Trotter. Tx good luck with the christenings surname!!!!!!!!

leann said...

Love everyone's suggestions, I've had such a giggle reading them all!

Not much point me suggesting anything, we once had a dog called Bark cos that's what he did... ;)

Gill said...

Hi, me again, we've thought of a few more but couldn't decide which animal to attach them to, so here are the suggestions
Arran, Pringle, Argyle, Dumplin', Dirk, we've had neeps so why not Tattie and a random one...Florence!
thanks, this is so much fun!!
