The Ewes are very passionate about the naming of their children and mostly names reflect events or things that happened at the time the child was born.

Most names signify a lot and also children are named to be of a particular behaviour that the parents wish and so will name the child after that.

Ewes can also name their children based on situations at the time. They can name the child after an accident, a calamity, a happy moment, grief etc.
