When you start naming farm animals...
You tend to get more attached to them. This is the problem that farmers face when their child is allowed to take special care of an animal that they are told all along that they're raising for slaughter. When it comes time to kill them, there's a big drama, and if the animal isn't given a reprieve from their death sentence and it ends up in the family freezer, the child usually refuses to eat it.
When you name them, you start to notice more of their personallity traits also, which could bring us an interesting twist later, especially when Miss Genius has another melt down.
