UPDATE - SEE PUPPY PICS - Need Help Naming a Singleton Puppy

Looking for ideas for unique puppy names for a 12 week "singleton" Golden Retriever puppy we just got. He's a blonde Golden, happy, lovable, and will probably be an 85-90 pounder when full-grown. He was born as a "singleton" puppy (highly unusual), and his dad's name is "Moses". I don't want to give him a standard name. We tragically lost our beloved Golden puppy, Dylan, at 15 months old last August and this puppy came along at a time to help heal our hearts over the loss of Dylan. Thanks in advance for your ideas.

See pics of puppy.

Thanks for the help.

I cannot offer a name, but what I do is try to figure what I feel would best describe the dogality I am seeing/feeling and then search on the internet for names which translate down to what I am trying to describe,

Example: Rishi = sage. Ray of Light
Faelan = Little Wolf, young wolf
Zachane = The Lord remembers (derivative)
etc

What about "Uno," with a reg'd name of One of a Kind or One and Only?

Think "one", "singular", "uno", etc. I had a singleton *and they are not highly unusual...
I named him Nitelite's Formula One. We called him Graham, after Graham Hill, Grand Prix Hall of Famer.

Singular Sensation
Once Upon A Time
One in a Million
One Moment in Time

etc etc...

Pics of singleton puppy needing help name

If this helps anyone with naming help, here are few pics of the puppy. He was a singleton and came to us on 10/21/09 at a time when our hearts needing healing over the sudden, tragic loss of our 15 month old Golden puppy, Dylan. Another thing unique about this puppy is he has some scar tissue on top of his head due to a cut that accidentally happened when he was born in his metal kennel cage. Its something else unique about him. hanks for name suggestions.
