NAME MY HEN

At the request of my loyal readers I am launching a new competition.

NAME MY HEN

We are getting 3 hens. We have chosen 2 names already (a closley guarded secret) but need a third name.

Leave your suggestions in the comment window. The judges decision is final. Should no suitable name be proposed the hen will be named Mother Clucker. Please, save her from this fate.

I think Thor and Harry are my favourite names at the moment. But not brilliant for Hens. I'm therefore suggesting:
Leia
Sarah (after The Beeny)
Gemima
Jenny
Sandy
Gretchen
Marion
Spud

Right here are my suggestions:

Sylvia
Betty (Good name for a hen and patriotic)
Shera (80s girl power)
Layla (Then you could sing to her 'oooooo Layla')
Jane (I like the idea of having a hen named after me but you aren't ever allowed to eat it then!)
Zaha
Frank
Mies
Herzog (I like this one the best...zog for short)
Daisy
Tulip
Lion (Just to confuse the neighbours)
Clive (Might cause some gender confusion but good none the less)
Maude
Maurag (sp? After all is Scottish)

My Daughter Danielle thinks you should call the hen "Geraldine", but I think that a rather splendid name would be "Madame Bovary", or how about "Mata Hari"......? Sorry, we did try!!!!

Since you live in Scotland and all, I think "McNugget" would be appropiate.....alternatively, as an homage to "Men In Black", "Eggar".
Hard really to suggest anything without knowing the two other names. Maybe you should just stick with "Mother Clucker"?

'McNugget' would be a good name but everyone knows there is no chicken in a Chicken McNugget. :-)

Why don't you carry on the family tradition and name it after a character from the Magic Roundabout?? I think Zebidee would be a wonderful name!

saying as you are in scotland and it is soo fitting I say call it 'Hen' as in 'awrite hen' pity another name isn't up for grabs and you could have "ken" too, as in 'I ken what ya mean pal'.
Or my final suggestion is 'pal.'

i'm getting 3 hens too....and at first i chose these names:
Hazel
Beatrice
Adelaide

and then i thought "well, Adelaide is cute for a hen cuz of the LAID part in the name" so i had to make my other 2 hen names kinda match (and be "chickeny") and i chose:

Adelaide
Nestor
Layla

i also like the name of a previous comment....Mrs. Henderson.....but i'm pretty sure i'll stick with Layla.
have fun with your girls!
