Baby Goat Names

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 for your homestead -- a tiny, cloven-hooved creature that will nibble at your clothes, jump, frolic, and do back-flips for absolutely no reason.

You researched breeds of goats, 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.

These adorable farm animals make great pets. While there are over 300 breeds of goats, Nigerian Dwarf goats and Pygmy goats are the most common pet goats -- this is probably because these mini goats are undeniably two of the cutest!
