The puppies are now 3 weeks old and they are so adorable that we are making up names for them - Snow, Flake, Egg White, Egg Yolk, etc... really, you can't resist when you see them.
And even though we can't keep them all :( , I'd like to collect some really great names here (maybe for the future owners).

If you want to helps us finding great names, you can look in our photo gallery at their pictures for inspiration...

(We kind of want to avoid giving them human names since one never knows who one meets in the future and it just might be awkward if the new friend has the same name as one's dog :eek:.)

So THANKS...

:D That's a good idea, Meggies mom! We were actually considering calling the puppies after the models Kia (the carmaker) makes - Kia RIO, Kia SORENTO, Kia SEDONA, Kia AMANTI... but the only one I really like is RIA (but it's also the name of my dentist :eek: , so I didn't want to call the puppy the same name even though I like the dentist).

I really like the name LILA.
And PI.
And YOGI.... I can go on and on. I think we need more puppies :eek:.

Pick a Name, Any Name...

Hi Vierka

Well I know exactly what you're going through with choosing a name. Being that you've got a whole litter it is a good idea to go with a THEME NAME. For eg. The 'JUST' litter, Just Awesome (Justin), Just Push Play (Buttons) Just Magic (Magic). This is for showing purposes so you have official names for them all, but also call sign so they get used to their names. I prefer giving them individual names. It feels more special and personal. Here are some ideas for pet names, I hope you can choose, I certainly couldn't!!! =)

My pups name is Ripley, I also liked:
Calli, Akira, Shahira, Pilgrim, Archamedies, Satine, Aristotol, Shaddow, Magician, Trophy, Sheeka, Akia, Storm, Allira, Gismo, Jester, Splinter, Sphinx, Shiva, Gulliver, Artemis, Zues, Tornado, Pistol, Bowzer, Cyclone, Fizzer, Checkers, Appollo, Caesar, Solomon, Bailey, Admiral, Shnapps, Pharo, Trigger, Zen, Eucalypt, Bandit, Arabella, Athina, Plato, Spritzer, Dakarai (african for happiness), Saidah (aftrican for fortunate), Harley, Machiato, Cider, Lestat, Biscuit, Arrow, Abacus, Boomer, Phantom, Luna, Trooper, Ginger, Orion, Baxtor, Bently (Works well for official name Major Bently), Cooper, Khan, Hunter, Chorro, Isis, Michalangelo, Emperor, Mojo, Odin, Morgan, Odessa, Piper, Galahad and Picaso.

Whew!!!! I went to all this trouble because I know how important it is to get the PERFECT name. And if everyone on this site reads this, they can write down all the ones they like and keep them handy for the future. Let me know which ones you like!! =) Have fun, Charm.

Good ideas

WOW! Thank you so much, Charm!
There are some really great names there - I especially liked Cider and Tornado (this is just the perfect expression of the energy Golden puppies have, in my opinion) :D.
Yes, for me the name has to fit to the puppy. By looks, personality...
Unfortunately, we can't keep all of the pups :eek:, so we'll give some suggestions to the new parents, but it's ultimately their choice...

Our puppies and their names

Well, just in case anyone wondered as to the names that were given to the 4 beautiful little creatures Kia gave birth to on March 20th, here they are:

1st born - boy - Donni
2nd born - girl - Daisy
3rd born - girl - Lila
4th born - boy - Keno

They all seem to fit quite nicely, so I'd say job well done (and a pat on the back)... :)

It took forever to pick Mojo's name. My husband was a Judo instructor so he wanted a Japanese name. Then he took Spanish so he wanted a Spanish name. Same with French. He was choosing all these weird names I couldn't pronounce. Mojo's kennel name is Ambercroft's Earth, Wind and Fire. It was a long drawn-out process to get that one but this is how it went. His Mum's name is Fire, his Dad, his Mum and he were all born under the Earth sign (in the huge birthday astrology book we have) and Hal and I were under the Wind sign. That's where Earth, Wind and Fire came from. Mojo is supposed to be a Creole Good Luck charm and one of the few names Hal suggested that I could pronounce. I jumped at it. I couldn't imagine calling him anything else, it seems to suit him so much.
