Glad you like it.  What else do you want the rest of his name to represent?
A quick bit of google fu suggests Perth or Lanark as the most likely breed of sheep.
You could have the name Daedalus after the craftsman who made wings of wax and feathers for himself and his son Icarus to escape from captivity. He flew safely but Icarus went too close to the sun and melted his wings.

So you could have something like Lord Lanark Daedalus Wind-Shear.

No offence taken. He is confused with a goat more often than I'd like.
Give a sheep facial hair and suddenly everyone thinks its a goat :p

I think ramses really is too egyptian for him though.

Hence I named him Caledon. I think I'll keep that middle name.

What about having "Amnos" somewhere in his name? I believe that was the Ancient Greek for sheep.

According to Google Translate, "itealaich caoraich" is Scots Gaelic for "flying sheep". I'll leave it to our actual Scots on this board to correct this, and perhaps shape it into something you can use.

Not at all! Harold is that most dangerous of animals — the clever sheep.

How about either Woolworth or Ewan for a first name? Woolworth Caldeon Cross-Wynde? Ewan Caledon Wynde-Shear? Ewan Caledon Whittingdon-Shiere (pronounced "Wind-shear")?
