Help name our puppy + realllly cute picture :)

Hi! Our pup is now 3.5 weeks old, and our breeder told us that the theme for this litter is "Up". That means the AKC registered name has to have something to do with that word (for example, two names that are already taken are "Giddy Up" and Bottoms Up" (inspired by the 1st picture)). The call name can be whatever we want, and that is what we're having the most trouble with.

We like names that don't sound like a command, are one or two syllables, and won't sound too much like our current dog's name, Chaya (pronounced Kaya). A little about ourselves: we're into football - root for the Lions, we love to travel, outdoorsy stuff, wine, and are huge nerds. I'm Chinese, so we'd would be open to something ethnic as well.

We are probably -90%- getting a boy, but MIGHT end up with a girl if that is a better fit in the end, so please help us come up with names for a boy AND a girl (mostly boy names thought pls)!

Thanks!!

This is mostly a joke...but since you are nerds (I'm assuming you play video games and hoping your are old enough to have had a nintendo )

AKC name - "up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, start"

Call name - Konami
