Lambing season is just around the corner and, while our minds might be focused on ensuring a comfortable and safe environment for our expectant ewes, our hearts are looking forward to the adorable balls of fluff that will be joining us soon.

Baby lambs charm us with their curiosity and escapades, swiftly filling our smartphones with snapshots of their adorable antics. But constantly calling your little ones “baby” and “lambie” can get tiring, not to mention confusing!

End the bamboozlement by giving each of your newborn lambs names of their own, perhaps from the following selections.
