Personally I prefer shorter names, but IMHO it all boils down to if you're happy with the name or not, my opinion shouldn't count. All the Hooligans have their given names, nicknames, etc and they know their different names that I call them.

As far as voting for the names you listed, I like Bee, Lucy, Lobo and Nico best (Bee (for a bitch) a shade more than the other three).

I have only ever named one dog,Daisy and even though her AKC papers should have said Pricess Daisy they just read Daisy. I liked Harold Robbins novels.I am changing Cheverily to to Chevrolet ,Chevy for short as we live in Lordstwon ,home of the Chevy Cruze. Thunder is jokingly called Thunder of the East,she is from the east coast.If I ever get to name a dog I have mostly boy names Dhugal (Voyageur series) ,Conor (Conor Larkins from Trinity one of my favorite books) and Lancalot (yeah the knights and the table thing). All three characters were fiercily loyal just Dhugal was dumb loyal. Besides love to have a dog named Doogie. Have to say would love a dog named Wilhelm with a call name of of Will.

Wolfy Dog is his nick name but when we are training I use his real name. I decided to name him with a friendly sounding name as I wanted people to know that he was not as intimidating as he would look as an adult.

Lucy is my sister's name, and I miss her very much. So, I decided to call my dog Lucy. If you were your father, what would you call yourself?

Yoschi came with his name... apparently it's a fairly common German dog name. I would have never thought of it, but it suits him well... we love it!
For our Goldendoodle we googled top doodle names and found "Bailey" it suits him as well

Mine have all come prenamed....I think the last one I named was in 1985 because breeders tend to have their litter names "xx" vom breederkennelname etc.

I just wound up with the name they "came with" and it kind of stuck on me.

@jocoyn When the day comes which is a pain to wait I'll name my German shepherd 1 of these names! Unless I get a rescue and he/she has a name I might keep the name.

I like names with a good meaning. Alexis is a derivative of Alexander which means "protector of man". Donovan is Celtic for "strong fighter". Dejavu, well, I swear I have seen that before. Unika (aka Nike) meant "unique".

I have also used names from J.R.R. Tolkien. Vala's registered name is Balien. Both mean the same thing in the two forms of the Elfin language, "one with power". Elena means "of the stars".

For training I prefer two syllables so tend to either shorten their names (Deja, Vala, Lena) or use a different call name (Vala instead of Balien or Nike instead of Unika). I also don't want something difficult to say though the German judges did tend to butcher Vala's (Balien) name.
