Name This Sheep Contest! Win The 2011 Old Farmer's Almanac

Get Adobe Flash player

Thank you to all for helping us shepherd in a name for our (unofficial) mascot of The 2011 Old Farmer’s Almanac!

We tried out a bunch of names for our little ewe and she responded to . . .

ALMA!

 

It so happened that more than 100 of our readers thought that Alma fit, too. We randomly selected one reader’s name from all of those who submitted the winning name, Alma.

Congrats to Michelle Lutz! We’ll be sending you a bundle of Almanac products, including copies of The 2011 Old Farmer’s Almanac and Everyday Recipes cookbook.

    Here are some more of our favorites—
  • Woolimina
  • Lady BaBa
  • Baa-rometer
  • Baabra
  • Berneece LaFleece
  • Ewenice
  • Fleur de Fleece
  • Rebaaa
  • Woolmaa

Thank ewe for helping us give our woolly 2011 mascot a name! Some of the names were hysterical (as you can see right on this page) and we had a flock of fun!

 

To buy copies of The 2011 Old Farmer's Almanac, see the Almanac.com General Store.

Ewestice Wooly-Wool.

I know “wooly wool” is redundant, but it sounds old fashioned, and I think it fits with the name Ewestice.

Since the Almanac's slogan is "Useful with a Pleasant degree of Humor" or U(ewe)P(a)H . . . how about Ewepah? I also like some of the other suggestions like "Ewenice" "lewecy" and "Alma". Your little lamb is fluffy and adorable. She deserves a name that reflects that and the practical and good-natured style of the Old Farmer's Almanac!

i don't mean to be a downer but couldn't you have chosen a more classic looking sheep that would represent an organization that was created in 1792? the brooks brothers sheep logo for instance-that's a classic. this should be in a storybook for preschool children. love your concept but don't like this much.
