I think you need to see the dog to finalize the name.

Also, I want a name that isn't on the top 10 most popular dog names. I thought I had that with Toby, but apparently not!

We have tried to add a little meaning to naming our pets.

Our most 11 weeks old golden is Winnie - named after our favorite ice fishing lake in northern Minnesota...Lake Winnibigoshish (Lake Winnie is what the locals call it). Our one cat, Seeley, is named after one of our favorite towns in northern Wisconsin. Another cat, Sippy, was named after we rescued him in Mississippi.

Good luck!

I like names that make sense lol There are cool names that reflect a personality of a dog, color, breed etc

My pup, Yukon, didn't have a name for several days after I got him because it was unexpected and I wanted to know him before I gave him a name. He is named after the Yukon River from the Gold Rush. A river full of gold...Golden Retriever...he was snow white nearly when I got him and its snowy up there so it was perfect!

My Blue Heeler's name is Mika because she has patches around her eyes that make her look like a raccoon and Mika means raccoon in Sioux so it fit her too!

I know a dog named Alba (white)
Azul (blue)
etc

One tip - make sure you feel comfortable calling it out across a park.

Also, it shouldn't sound like a basic command - or "no."

After that - just make sure it means something to you.

Yes, I'll never forget the time that I called Cookie and all the dogs came running expecting to get a cookie from me.

I call her Cooks more often now!

I love the Thelma Lou story. I once had a good friend, female who has passed away,
who dated Don Knots in high school. They would still phone each other even when they reached their 80s.

When I take Toby to the ophthalmologist I'm constantly looking at the sign in sheet for cool dog names. One day while I was waiting for some new eye meds to be filled I had an extended conversation with the lady who does the calls reminding people of the upcoming appointments. I asked her about names and any fun ones she knew. She gave me a few, which I forgot , but she also told me some of the dog names she really disliked because it is embarrassing to make those appointment calls and leave voice mails about it- names you really shouldn't repeat in public, or lewd names. Really silly names like Kissy Wissy or things like that are not good ones for clinic staff.

To further my point about naming a dog something that isn't extremely popular, at our last ophthalmology appointment there were 3 Toby dogs in the waiting area. My Toby was the biggest, most friendly and, true to form, the loudest. He loved the other Toby's and the feeling was not mutual.

I just laughed out loud. Good thing I wasn't drinking anything.

being a military family that moves around a lot we wanted a name that reflected where we were in life at the time we got Peaches. We were going to go with Georgia but when we told the breeder she said, oh I have two Georgias in my litters. Well, we didn't want that! So we went with Peaches which goes hand in hand with Georgia. When we told our breeder she said there weren't any of those and liked it. Immediately she started calling her that and I have to say Peaches is all that, sweet and sassy just like a southern gal!
