I'm an English teacher. So I decided to use names with literary associations for my last two dogs. My Golden who is at the bridge, was named Webster, after the dictionary. Chaucer, since he's an English Golden is named after Geoffrey Chaucer, the writer. Garrett came to me from rescue with his name. And although I keep thinking I'd like to change it, his name seems to suit him just fine.

My Lexie came home from Dirk's Fund with the name Lexus. Her brother, Beamer, (get the car connection?) came over with his foster mom, Mary. She called out, "Lexie Looooou!" That's how she became Lexie/Lexie Lou. I just happen to have the name DebsiLou so...perfect!

My sister in law has a black mix (kinda looks like a flatcoat) and we see them a lot so when I knew we were getting a golden, I wanted to give her a name that went with his. His name is Midnite, so I decided to go with Sun, or Sunshine. One day, Sunny Delight just popped into my mind. I loved it! So she is officially Stagestop's Sunny Delight. Little did I know that people would wonder if she was a boy or girl because of the name Sonny!

And Mister, well, he came with that name. I really didn't like it, but we'd fostered him a month before deciding to keep him, and the kids just wanted to stick with it. It's embarrasing when I call him in public around men "Hey, Mister!!"

My little sister named her Ginger for us, she felt like such a big girl. I added on ginger-ly, it just came out of my mouth one day and it stuck.

I got Carrie's name- Carolina from one movie-"Fantaghiro" ( Fantaghirò series - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ) .Carolina is Fantaghiro's sister.When I was little child I loved fairytales like that.
But in her pedigree they didn't wrote Carolina with "C" - and she became Zia Karolina.
"Zia" is from other movie- named "The mysterious cities of gold" ( The Mysterious Cities of Gold - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ).

I had dog called Micah- I just liked it because it's an old name and he was a Saluki...

Zander was the last name of a crush of mine in middle school... lol
