Name this Dog

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 

I could use some help. I'm looking for a name for this dog. She isn't old enough to be seperated just yet.

 

So I thought it would be better if I had a name so she could get use to hearing it first and then the comand NO!

I am partial to binding names how about, Pivot 18 XXL? It just rolls off the lips. You could just go with "Marker", it looks like he will prerelease for a while until you train him.  OH..we can go vintage with "Spademan" or he kinda looks like a "Scott" which kinda works with my second choice for animal names..people names, "Scott" straddles the line. Third would be Steven Wrights choice "Stay", Come... "Stay"...  Sit.... "Stay".. .stay... "Stay".

I had a friend in high school named his cat "Mattchesterdockittygunsmoke."  It's kind of long for him now but it's a name he can grow into.

I like Steven Wright's idea: Name him "Stay".

whatever you name him/her it should be two syllables,I read that in a dog training book,it easier for them to learn their name and to recognize it

Kathrine and call her Kitty for short.  Fast forward to the future when she's 2 and new friends come over -

 

You say "You have to meet our Kitty!" and call out "Here Kitty, Kitty." and a 100# Rottie comes trotting around the corner.  Gets them every time.

 I read that to long ago but forgot. thanks for the reminder.

 The dog is female. If the dog was male it would be easy............. Heck I have no idea.

 

 

 Duchess / Dutch....maybe.....keeping the Marker royal family.......Sara Ferguson used to call Princess Diana Dutch......... short for Duchess of Windsor.

 

 I was fortunate enough to talk with Princess Diana a few times........ She was no Royal.......She was much better IMHO.

That puppy is way too cute to be called "Dammit" (here Dammit, sit Dammit, etc.).   

 

Ullr is the Norse God of snow and archery, so why not name this cute doggie after Ullr's mother, Sif?  Or after his mother, who I think was Skadi.  "Skadi" sounds Scandinavian, and that is cool for a snow dog.  There is Frigga (the wife of Odin), Saga (Goddess of poetry and a bunch of other stuff), Edda, etc. The Norse had lots of gods and goddesses with multiple jobs.   That dog should be named after one.

Carrera..

She has nice tan socks, but her feet are going to be huge so how about "Bootsie"?

 

Cujo?

post #11 of 28

A two syllable name that is not common or easily confused with a common word is best.  As a take off from Phil's  suggestion, I kind of like "Pivot."

"Mudslide"

 

 

post #13 of 28

Wrigley or Stella?

post #14 of 28

"Pro deal"

post #15 of 28

Well, since "Fido" and "Cujo" are probably out of the running, how about "Volkl"? 

post #16 of 28

How about "Kiku", which I believe is the female version of our favorite ski, the Volkl Gotama!

Ditto.  Name should be two syllables and commands should be one syllable.

And watch for names that sound like common commands.

I learned that one the hard way with a few of my old bird dogs.  We had one my sister named "Moe".  Big mistake!

I've always wanted to train a weimeraner and teach him commands in german.

 

Anyway.  How about something humerous and non gender specific.  I like "Gaper"

Don't forget, it has to be a word the OP doesn't use a lot.

 

"Buttplant"

Zudnick.   Or since she is a female... Zudnicki.

Where did you get her? If you got her from a shelter you could call her Yardsale. wink.gif

Malibu or BUBU

I'm partial to Gypsy which was the name of one of my favorite female black labs that loved to roam about the neighborhood and visit the kids who lived nearby.

 

I've currently got a pure white 4 year old male lab my boys named Powder. I doubt I have to explain here how that name came to be.

"CornDog"

post #24 of 28

You could go with the species confusion program and name her Kitty.

post #25 of 28

I kind of like the name BT for this dog as in Bee Tea which of course stands for Black and Tan. 

 

Some names we have had for our dogs over the years.  Shady, Arrow, Dakota, Bear, Cassey, Jack, Abbey, Cinder. 

 

I had a friend of mine that had a Belgium Shepperd named Oblio.   So we named our first Golden Retriever Arrow which by far was the best dog I ever owned.   If you don't know about Oblio and Arrow just google it.

Well I have a few names here Thank You all for that.

 

So far she responds to "Nut Bag" pretty well. When she comes in she tries to bring in small branches. The back porch looks like we are clearing brush. The cat is never going to be the same. She is on his every move constantly because he is the only action around. I heard a yowl from him last night. Who knows what part of his person took a violation. She has a great personality and is fearless of everything. She's is kind of like a good hockey player, body slams and all.......only with a tree branch instead of a stick. LOL ........

 

I might be leaning to Hoochie for a name???????? Who knows

She is a little doll, and might be one fast chick as she gets older. 

 

How about Lindsy?
