What should we name our Newborn Twin Lambs?

Twin lambs were just born on our family farm! They're pretty adorable.  We started with three pregnant sheep about 15 months ago. We have now grown to nine sheep including 2-3 pregnant sheep.  Read more about our attempts at our Catholic Homesteading site .  These are Katahdin sheep, a type of hair sheep. We didn't want to subject wool sheep to Louisiana summers. Can you imagine?
