Williamsburg, Va. – Three baby lambs – triplets, actually, born in Colonial Williamsburg, now have names after a recent contest held online.

The names chosen for the Leicester Longwool lambs are Jamie, Yorkie, and Willie. The names are all abbreviated versions of the areas in the Historic Triangle: Jamestown, Yorktown, and Williamsburg.
