Maybe larger herds could have longer names and smaller herds shorter names.

I've always liked obscure words, for example, words in Latin or Greek. However, I feel like it needs to tie in with the theme of the national park.
My ideas for naming the elk herds are the titles of the historic nomadic Native American tribes that inhabited Wyoming (where most of Yellowstone is situated).
These include the Arapaho, Arikaka, Bannock, Cheyenne, Kiowa, Sioux, Ute etc. Although, the names of the elk herds could also just be of Native American tongue.
I like this idea a lot, and I think possibly naming herds off off national landmarks found in Yellowstone.
Or name them after the developers! A quick nod to them and their years of work!

Sneaky/funny/interesting references to the game staff names! I like this idea. Something like those shops and other places in Lost River.

I'd totally like to name the herds but I'm not to good and naming these kinds of things. Good progress though.

I like the idea of naming herds after native Yellowstone Vegetation, but at the same time, I agree with giving them names that hint more at their composition rather than actual names, which seems to be more important here. Curious to see what the team comes up with.
