Posted by Allie Layos

These baby goat names are perfect for your new little kid. 

If you're like most of your fellow Americans, the current pet goat craze has you thinking about getting a baby goat -- a tiny, cloven-hooved creature that will nibble at your clothes, jump, frolic and do back-flips for absolutely no reason.

You researched breeds, located the nearest goat breeder, figured out where to house your goat, and even what to feed it. Now you're left with one final challenge -- finding the perfect name.

Southern names are always good for farm animals, especially for cat names and horse names. Irish names just seem to fit goat personalities the best.

Here are eight of the best baby goat names, girl names and boy names, to help you choose a moniker as perfect as your tiny new friend.

1. Bubbles

There is no better description of a goat's personality than "bubbly." They are always happy, whether they're grazing in a field, butting heads with other goats or chomping on your clothes.

2. Bright Eyes

If you've ever looked into a goat's eyes, this name will make perfect sense. Due to their aforementioned bubbly personalities, a goat's eyes always have a special light to them!

Plus, band names always make for good pet names.

3. Trouble

Goats are mischievous, and hard to keep penned up, two qualities which lead them into a fair amount of trouble. This name pays homage to that.


4. Miss Daisy or Clover

These names are like allusions to common names of dairy animals -- perfect for your sweet little girl!

5. Cookie

Goats love food, so Cookie, short for Cookie Monster, seems like an accurate and adorable name for your little monster, male or female. Mama goat will approve of this name.

6. Murphy

There's something about the name Murphy that conjures up images of curiosity and naughtiness, two qualities your new pet is bound to have in abundance.
