Madeline: Bonjour! I’m Madeline, like the girl from the book by Ludwig Bemelmans. Mother named me this since was living in the hospital with a hurt leg. She says it’s a shame I don’t have a half-moon scar, but I’m pretty content without one.
Pippi: Mother named me Pippi because, like Pippi Longstocking in the Pippi Långstrump (Longstocking in Swedish) books by Astrid Lindgren, I am strong but kind.
Anne: I’m named after Anne Shirley from Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery.
Splash Wyandottes: We’re brand new to the farm and Mother doesn’t know us well enough to know our names yet. But don’t worry, we’ll let her know them soon enough!
