The breeder put a bandana on Merlin before we picked him up. It had suns, moons and stars on it. My hubby thought he looked liked Merlin the magician. It stuck!

Oliver - the show Oliver Twist was a favourite of mine and my Oliver lives up to the pickpocketing actions of the real Oliver Twist. My Ollie will pickpocket anything he can out of your bathrobe pocket, your purse, etc, etc. If we can't find something, we just say "OLIVER"!!!!!!!!!

Now, Nygel,......... you must promise not to say anything to my husband about this!!!!!!!:crossfing I had a secret teenage crush on a boy named "Nygel" who spent the summers at his grandparents' cottage that was close to our family cottage. (The funny thing is that I actually met Nygel just 2 weeks ago at the cottage after not seeing him for over 30 years!!!!!! The crush is gone!:yuck:)

Yes, this thread was covered some months back, but who cares? Its a fun thread anyway!

SunnyRose was born here in my kitchen, only female in the litter. I gave all the puppies names and hers was Rosie and she had a little pink thread around her neck. When she was 8 weeks old we decided to keep her but she didn't fit her name. One day she and I were out in the dogrun and she was jumping and playing like a little nut. I said "boy, you are the sunniest little puppy I have ever had!" Bingo, her name was born -- SUNNYROSE

Jasmine got her name through television. The morning we were to leave to pick her up from the breeder hubby was watching the channel 7 morning news. I had my short list of names ready to go with us to the breeder. Every morning the weather girl on this channel has a segment called Weather Sketcher of the Day. Kids send in their drawings to be shown on tv. The weather sketcher for this morning was a little girl named JASMINE WOLFE. Jasmine was on my list of names for the puppy and our LAST NAME IS WOLFE! Hubby yelled into the bathroom, "we have the puppys name!"

That is a good question....I don't really know. I got Bailey first and just always liked the name. I also like Bailey's Irish Cream Liquor too, but I think that is a coincidence, LOL. They when we got Bentley he was going to be named Barnum, like Barnum & Bailey's circus....but that didn't stick and we still wanted a name that began with "B".:p:

My husband is a big NE Patriot's fan, so Brady is named after the Pat's quarterback - Tom Brady. His registered name is Twin-Beau-D's Quarterback Blitz.

I think he is just about the only athlete that my girl's know.

Hoagy was named after the golden from Jimmy Buffett's book "Where's Joe Merchant?"
Maggie was short for Magnolia...a great southern name...she was born on a early Sunday morning when all our magnolia's were in bloom.

Now Mr Wilson & Rocky
Wilson real name before I rescued him was Woody...his foster mom changed his name to Wilson..cause every time she would look and talk to him..she thought of the movie that Tom Hanks was in the "Castaway" and the ball that he named Wilson
Rocky's name has not been changed...there are days that he is called "The Rockster"

Got Miley's name from the Disney show Hannah Montana (starring Miley Cyrus). My daughter is a big fan of the show and we watch every night. We were originally going to name her Hannah, but decided on Miley 'cause it was different.

Tucker's name came from him falling asleep as a pup as soon as anyone picked him up, mom said "Look, he's all tuckered out, thats so cute" therefore Tucker came about. To this day you can still find him napping around often :p:

Ginny got her name because we intended having her speyed when she was old enough and hubby said she would be a virgin. Holly got hers because when i first saw her at 2 days old we were going on holiday the next day. People think she was born at christmas but she was actually born in june.

Ours are named after bodies of water. I have grown up and always lived closed to water so their AKC names are after Rivers, streams or lakes.

The boys were super little when we got Emmy. We were discussing names and one of them said 'Sara' which is my name. I said, 'oh that would be really confusing having two Sara's' then said how it would be like having two Aunt Monica's or two Aunt Emily's. (My sister's). As soon as I said Aunt Emily they both were like "NEMMY, NEMMY!" That's what they called my little sister who they still love to pieces. So we named her Emmy....actually Nemmy...lol

I had a few names in mind but I really liked Muffin, it sounds so cute.I do thinks she's the only Muffin in Belgium.
Emma, well, she's really my husband's dog so he had to pick the name. When I put her on my lap, I thought, Emma but didn't say anything.
We got home and all wrote names down. My husband took the lists, looked two minutes and said : ...Emma.
