I don't think you can "overdo" a post (take my last one for example lol), but whatever you think. Thanks for reminding me that dogs can't see colours as good as we can btw, let's just ignore that Kirah knew it was pink for a sec and pretend she didn't know either
nooo worries :D

Congrats! Are you going for a specific theme with the names or not? Because we can suggest some!
THISSS

Not going to lie though, they remind me of black and tan dachshunds! And the brown one, if (he?) has the tan markings like the other two, is like a chocolate and tan doxxie! I've never seen sheep those colors before, only goats!

Gahhh they are so cute and fluffyyyyyy!!!!!!!!

A friend's grand-daughter asked to name one Cinderella, so a Disney theme seems to be in the cards this year (last year it was fae/fairies, the year before it was Hobbits) All names gratefully received. I'm hoping the four ewes still due to lamb don't all produce triplets, or I'll run out of room- a mix of twins and singles is most likely.

It does look a bit like the black-and-tan of breeds like dachshunds and dobies. In Shetland sheep the colour is known as gulmoget (black gulmoget, or moorit gulmoget for the brown). Shetlands use a lot of terms in the original language of the Shetland isles. In other sheep breeds it's sometimes called Mouflon. Yes, the brown one is a boy (tup lamb or ram lamb), and is also the smallest of the triplets. The girl (ewe lamb or gimmer) is the largest. These are my first black gulmoget lambs! I had one moorit gulmoget ewe lamb last year- the full sister of these three.

Disney theme, I'm hella on board! Idk why but the first name that popped into my head was Sven from Frozen xD

Wow learning alot today! I'll have to remember those coloration names, very cool! I've heard of the terms ram lamb and ewe lamb, but tup lamb for a male and gimmer for a female are new! Are those Shetland specific terms?

Tup for a male sheep (whole/not castrated) is Old English, I think? You find it in many places in the UK, gimmer as well, but I think a lot of the terms are only used among 'sheep folk'. Gimmer is a female sheep before her first lamb. You can also get wether (castrated male sheep), and hogget or shearling (sheep of either gender after weaning but before its first shearing- although it varies a bit).

Shetland-specific colours and patterns, now, you can get mioget, emsket, shaela, yuglet, crunet, flekket, socket and katmoget...

@Quiddles I immediately thought of Mulan when I saw the Disney theme and her dragon is called Mushu so why don't you name the other boy Mushu? Or, y'know, name the girl Mulan but that would be a bit obvious

@Afropuppy Why not obvious? There's a girl and two boys though, and my other sets of siblings all have related names (although Cinderella and Aurora are stretching that a bit): Titania/Oberon, Merry/Pippin, Sugar/Spice. Three related names would be good.

Well if the girl is Cinderella, why not go for Gus and Jaq for the boys? Unless you wanted the names related as the characters are related?

Ok then how about Rapunzel, Flynn and Pascal since those are the main characters of the Rapunzel movie? They're 1 girl and 2 boys!
