Default what Is your Pets names?

Hi i am getting a new puppy in a few weeks (they are due to be born on
friday) and have been trying to think of a name, i am friends with the
breeder so i will get to see them and pick out what puppy i want, i also
want them to start to call him by his name, but i dont know what to call
him!

any ideas? How did you guys find the right name for your puppy ? (i also
know that i should wait and see what the pup is like before setting on a
name, but i just want some idea)

The only thing we knew about Khan prior to getting him was that he was a
large, handsome dog, with possibly no housetraining. We went with his
name because a) he is quite a handsome fellow and needed a name fit for
kings and b) we thought that he was going to wreak havoc in the house,
eating everything in sight, digging holes in the floor, etc. Naming him
after Ghenghis Khan seemed to be the logical choice/ best compromise.

If we ever get that girl dog we want, DH says that he has a name picked
out for her. Turns out, it's Ursula. All I can say is, Over My Dead
Body. Can you imagine, a Malamute named Ursula? That sounds like a
girl who'd wanna walk around with tiaras and rhinestone collars
shudder

Heh. Our friend who arranged for Bella to come to us had her named
Scout. This girl is no Scout, but a fine Bella. I keep trying to change
her name to Spot, but she'll have nothing to do with that name...

But all of our dogs have multiple names...

Duchess (the Duchess of Doodle, Doodle, Dude, Poodle)
Bella (Blah Blah, Bay-low, Baby)

That's one of my gripes with that name. Plus, I can't find a way to
shorten it for a nick name. We've been thinking that Khan's sis ought
to be a famous lady, possibly royalty, but can't think of an appropriate
name. Cleopatra is right out.

Ursa is a nice way to start the names of constellations...

scout is on my bully girl dog name list, followed closely by
spider and gertie. bela-with-one-l is on my boy name list
G.

But all of our dogs have multiple names...


mine all have rotating names. these days, harriet is usually
called baby girl or biscuit (or bisKETTE). elliott is punkin,
puppy love, or wee laddie. rory-cat is crack baby and a whole
lotta other names that aren't allowed to be said on teevee and
radio.

Duchess (the Duchess of Doodle, Doodle, Dude, Poodle)


i parsed that as "Oodle Doodle Poodle." heh.

Bella (Blah Blah, Bay-low, Baby)


so, do you sing "Bay-low, sweet chariot..." to her?

Never thought of that. That'll crack DH up, for sure. My favorite song
for her is the Can-Can song sung with "Bella" as the only lyric. And
Doodle loves my version of the Orphan Annie (like the one that was on
the radio when my folks were kids) song. (Who's that little doodle girl?
She's livin' in her doodle world. Who can it be? It's little orphan
Duchie.) Actually, Doodle loves all her special songs and she has the
most.

I can't imagine naming a puppy until you meet him/her. I call my Maltese
"Puff" because when I brought him home he weighed just 2 lbs. and he looked
exactly like an old fashioned, long haired, white powder puff. The name
still fits him and, of course, as a term of endearment he has become
"Puffy."

Harley was almost named Cricket. She was also almost named Bonnie. The
name she came with was Muffie. She ended up being Harley because I was a
ginormous metalhead at the time.

I can't name animals sight unseen. Usually the names just come to me.
The only pet I didn't name was Fly, who came with that name.

Anyway, late pets:

Billie Jean (no comment), first hamster
Regulus (Reggie, named after a descendant of the Godolphin Arabian),
second hamster
Justin, third hamster
Ashley (named after Ashley Wilkes, since he was orange), fourth hamster
Harley Pie, Pomeranian
Motoo Kimura, black cat

And then there were a zillion goldfish and bettas, but I can't remember
all their names.

Current dogs:

Ashfall Solo River, Solo, rescued Border Collie. Solo is named after two
fossil sites: Ashfall Fossil Beds, Nebraska (where they found lots of
three-toed horses) and the Solo River of Indonesia (where they first
found specimens of _Homo erectus_)

Imp. (Imported) Fly, Border Collie. Fly is an exceedingly common Border
Collie name. Fly came with the name. Her breeder does not use kennel
prefixes. Imported dogs that are subsequently registered in the States
(which I have not gotten around to doing yet) are commonly registered as
"Imp. [name of dog]."

Helpful, you ain't. People have enough trouble with Khan (Kong, Can,
Cain, ...), I don't even want to begin with Hat.... I suggested Marie
(after Mme. Curie), but DH says no dorky scientist names. Ticked me off
sufficiently for me to consider suggesting Brunhilde, but I do pity the
dog that ends up with that name.
