I do believe one of the biggest challenges I face every spring is naming all those baby goats. It seems almost silly for a grown man to spend so much of his time and brain power trying to pick just the right name for his goats. As a breeder of registered Boer goats, I always hold out hope that one or more of "my" goats will someday become famous, and with that in mind, I try to choose a name that will do them proud. It was fairly easy for the first couple of springs, and then my ideas ran out. Yet I still shudder when I think of people talking about "Southern Star's Ennobled Stanley the Goat." (I try to have names picked out well before the kids hit the ground as my young daughter is always quick to name a baby goat with such a name as Stanley or Flower.)
I've always struggled naming my own goats, and I sure won't be much help coming up with names for yours, but here's some names we've used in the past, as well as some we thought about but never could bring ourselves to actually do it.

Names for bucks, billy goats, and other male goats
Thunderbolt-Our first born. He was born with a lightning bolt on his forehead, just like his great-grandfather, Mojo Magic.
Doc Holliday-Thunderbolt's brother. My wife liked the name because she liked Doc Holliday in Tombstone.
Rowdy-I wanted to name a goat after Clint Eastwood, one of my all-time favorite actors, but Clint just didn't work, so I choose Rowdy from Rawhide.
Kemo-Sabe-Duh, the sidekick of Tonto.
Tonto-Duh, ditto. Brothers, of course
Maverick-The name just fit this wild little buck He was a gambler and a player.
Casper-A handsome little white pygmy. He just disappeared one day.
