可以稱牧羊的女生為Shepherd girl嗎?

最近要幫女兒擬一份英文說故事的稿子.

她要說的故事是: The Shepherd Boy and the Wolf.

我想要問的是,我可以把牧羊女可以叫做"Shepherd girl"嗎?

我知道牧羊女好像有人叫"Bo Peep".

所以如果我把故事改成 "The Bo Peep and the Wolf"

或是 "The Shepherd Girl and the Wolf".

請問這樣會很奇怪嗎? 那一個比較正確?

PS: 要這樣改是因為想用第一人稱來說故事.

先謝謝大家

Update:

都沒有人覺得應該用"Bo Peep"嗎?

我的感覺是這樣捏~

Shepherd - for male

Bo Peep- for female

有另一個有名的故事叫:

'Little Bo Peep has lost her sheep"

大家覺得呢?

Update 2:

還有"玩具總動員"裡 胡迪的女朋友也叫 "Bo Peep"唷~

    shepherdess = a woman whose job is to look after sheep 牧羊女

    girl可當形容詞,a girl cousin, a girl student

    girl當名詞用時,可組複合名詞,如an office girl, a salesgirl

    所以故事的標題寫成 A Shepherd Girl and A Wolf是沒問題的

    標題用不定冠詞較合適,因為故事通常是[很久以前,有一位牧羊女和一隻狼]這樣開始的:

    Once upon a time, there were a shepherd girl and a wolf ...

    2010-10-27 11:45:59 補充:

    如果要用第一人稱來說故事,題目應寫作A Wolf and I

    故事的出發點,會是[我]:I am a shepherdess...或I am a shepherd girl...

    http://encyclopedia.thefreedictionary.com/Bo+Peep

    Little Bo Peep And a Wolf

    按上面這個字典的解釋,應該是可以通的.

    但做為小朋友的故事標題,對一般的人來說,可能有點難理解了.

    shepherd = sheperd

    牧羊女是叫做 shepherd/ sheperd girl,這裡有本原文書叫做"The little sheperd girl~ a Christmas story". 簡介可以給你一些靈感

    建議可以比照改為: The Little Sheperd Girl and the Wolf. 好像更順一點~

    通常這種故事都是以第三人稱去敘述故事背景,再以對話模式進行~
