Names that end with a "EE" sound

So before we had Joey we were thinking of names and my mom was very determined to name our boy with a name ending in an "EE" sound. She insisted that it would help the dog learn its name faster and would help training. Is this even true? I was never sure but i had already liked and chosen the name Joey (not for the EE sound) But when im older id love to have lots of dogs with names that don't have that EE sound.

(some names with the EE : Joey, Maggie, Sammy, Lilly, Charlie, Billy etc)

just a random question i was always curious about!

thanks

i was always told one syllable names are the best.

I DO KNOW, from naming my first guy, try to avoid names with "no" in them or "leash."

Noah was hard and we did not realize "no" and "noah" were confusing for him.

And I have a friend named alicia and it apparently sounds like "leash" which in turn means to them "where are we going I'm so excited." Not that we love her extra more - just that when you say her name we are going places.

This is a little random, but I learned in graduate school about assonance/ vowel sounds in poetry that O sounds are serious( Never send to know/ For whom the bell tolls/ It tolls for thee- O is scary!) and E (Y) is inviting and affectionate which is why little kids' nicknames so often end in "E". ( like I was Jilly instead of Jill until the end of my 20's). It makes sense that the Y/E names are more friendly.

The Monks of New Skete suggest two syllable names with a long vowel sound in each.
(Joey, Casey for e.g.)

As we are trying to figure out a name for soon-to-be-here pup, the family has been giving me a hard time about the name having to end in the EE sound. I think it has something to do with:
Maudie (Maude) Abby (Abigail), Mandy (Amanda), Benny (Bennett), Bailey, Riley, Zoey, and Talley. Reuben was an exception as he was a save from the neighbors.

I was told by my grandmother many years ago to name the dog with a vowel sound at the end as the sound usually is then higher at the end of the word and sounds happy. I have no idea where she got her information or if it is even right.

It may be true, but pets with names that don't end in EE still learn their name. Like our chihuahua/terrier's name is Zeppelin... he learned his name right away.

So, i dont know? Hm

always end up adding the y/e or er to name as affectionate nickname, so need to test those out before deciding on name.

We were told "O" sounds like "NO" and "EE" gets a dog's attention faster because it's a high/play/friendly sound. <- And this is the same for all animals.

Doesn't mean your dog will not learn his name if it is a different sound. But adding that "EE" sound to the name is an added attention-play cue for a puppy when you are training.

I bet you call him Reuby though!

I like two syllables, and will not use names the the long "o" sound because it is too close to the word "No".

If you do choose a name like Noah or Moby, etc., pick a different word to replace the word "no", something like Stop, AhAh, fuey, etc.
