Our first Golden was named "Buddy". We couldn't figure out what to name him, so everytime we called him we said "come here buddy". Somehow the name stuck, and it was perfect for him

Finlay's breeder had a military theme for the litter. My husband's family is Irish, so we tried to find an Irish or Gaelic name that would fit with the theme. That's how we came up with "Finlay" which is a Gaelic boy's name and means "Blond Haired Soldier".

Ranger - Because I wanted a Polaris Ranger so bad I couldn't stand it. I also named a rabbit Ranger and a turtle Ranger. The subliminal messages didn't work we still ended up with a Yamaha Rhino instead. lol.

Roxie - I had no say so in. I let my daughter name her. Her name is Roxie Carmicheal Rosebud. (My daughter was 8).

Fifi - Same as with Roxie. Her name is Felix Flower. (My daughter was 3).

We're flexible. Just go with the flow. Had a rabbit once name Foxy Louise. Lol.

We named him Barley because we like beer quite a bit and he is pretty yellow for a golden!

Talking

When I rescued "Terence" from our local shelter back on 10/19/12, I certainly wasn't going to call him Terence! So I renamed him "Renny".

At the time I didn't even know if "Renny" was a real name. So I looked it up, and sure enough this is what I found on one site:

Irish Meaning:
The name Renny is an Irish baby name. In Irish the meaning of the name Renny is: Mighty.
Latin Meaning:
The name Renny is a Latin baby name. In Latin the meaning of the name Renny is: To rise again.
French Meaning:
The name Renny is a French baby name. In French the meaning of the name Renny is: To rise again.

SoulUrge Number: 5 People with this name have a deep inner desire for travel and adventure, and want to set their own pace in life without being governed by tradition.
Expression Number: 4 People with this name tend to be orderly and dedicated to building their lives on a solid foundation of order and service. They value truth, justice, and discipline, and may be quick-tempered with those who do not. Their practical nature makes them good at managing and saving money, and at building things in the material world. Because of their focus on order and practicality, they may seem overly cautious and conservative at times.

I love how his name means "To rise again" since I rescued him.

Renny certainly is "mighty"! He's quite strong, enjoys riding in the car and going on "adventures"! Not sure yet about how "orderly" or "disciplined" or "frugal" he is, but I guess I'll find out in time!

I always thought "Max" was a cool dog name, but we never had a male dog before, so we named or first male dog Max. I think he really looks like a Max, now.

We named our previous Golden, Chewbacca, after the Star Wars character. She was a girl and we called her Chewy for short. Turned out to be appropriate, after she ate a leather recliner.

Out first Golden we named Golda, because she was golden in color.

Yogi - because he had big bear paws as a puppy.
Yuki - because we had just taken a trip to Japan; Yuki means "snow" in Japanese, and he is cream colored.

Ginger, our first golden, mom and dad picked out the name for her!

Sadie and Sydney the labs we all had to agree on their names. Sydney we had picked out since we knew we were getting her. Sadie was a surprise as we went to pick up Sydney and then ended up coming home with two puppies!

And Lastly, Beamer is named after the head football coach at Virginia Tech, Frank Beamer.

For the cats-
Nip was named after one of the beanie babies. Her name did fit her as she wasn't very nice at the vet! I miss her a lot.

Cali- Named after California, my sister named her.
Orion- I named him and had always loved that name.
