Now, I have a favorite as well as a couple of runner-up favorites, but I won't try to influence the vote.  We are NOT voting yet, so if you have a name suggestion for the new baby, let me know in a comment, on Facebook (if we are friends there) or in an email sometime today.  I'm not letting this go on too long, because I want to be able to start calling her something besides No-name when I feed her.  
I'm doing something a little different with her:  Milk replacer for calves is pretty expensive, and they don't really do quite as well on it as on real milk.  I don't want to milk twice a day like I used to, but I have decided that for a while I am going to separate Jody from her calf every evening and milk her every morning.  So each morning No-name will get real milk, straight from the cow.  In the evening I'll mix up milk replacer for her.  With a baby calf on the place, I won't be going anywhere overnight anyway.  Jody is easy to milk.  I might as well be milking.  
Stay tuned for baby chickens, too.  We won't bother naming those.

I like Hailey. What about Heidi.

I have four favorites on your list. Since we're not voting yet I won't reveal them.
(I won't suggest any new names, because the list is already quite long)

I didn't know it was such a science to naming calves. ;) I would just probably call her Baby.

My first thought was Toffee, or Taffy
