Name This Sheep Contest!

September 2, 2010

Thank you to all for helping us shepherd in a name for our (unofficial) mascot of this year’s 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 ld 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 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 Old Farmer’s Almanac, see the Almanac.com General Store.

I agree with me! Ewenice is a shearly a GREAT name! There's mutton baaaahd about it! I wolly mean it! Don't let this opportunity get pasture grasp! And, I'm not trying to pull the wool over your eyes or fleece ewe.

Since the Almanac's slogan is

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!

How about Almerino Almanac?
