Mr. Rooster - Now It's Up to You


We've gotten so many great ideas for names for our rooster. I don't have room (well let's say, I'm running out of time) to post them all but read through the comments from last post if you want a chuckle. We had a little family meeting and we picked out our favorites. Now it's up to you.

Vote for your favorite in the comments section. By the time I come back from Detroit, your votes will have spoken!

1. Lewis N. Cluck (Julia likes this one because they are learning about the famous explorers at school this spring)

2. Russell Crowe


3. E.B. White


4. Whitey (Bulger who's been "on the lamb")


5. Reginald (several of you suggested this regal name)


6. John Quincy Adams (evidently our rooster looks a bit like the man)

Voting ends April 18th! And thanks a lot!

I had a hard time choosing between the first three choices. Russell Crowe would be a lot of fun, but I think I like E.B. White best.

Good luck!

April 18th is my birthday.....I vote for Russell Crowe and a close second choice is Lewis N Cluck....Michele

Michele said...

I vote for Lewis N. Cluck. Julia should have her favorite!!

Lee said...

Oh, E.B. White. He was such a lover of animals and a realist, too. He understood farm life. Plus, E.B. is an easy nickname.

j said...

Lewis N. Cluck. Julia should most definitely have her favorite.

to paraphrase E. B: any little girl that gets up before dawn (to rid the world of injustice....or, because a rooster is crowing) should get to name that rooster

If you want your rooster to strut his stuff I think you have to go with Russell Crowe.All others seem too academian for the honor.
