Default What do u prefer to name a German shepherd?

Is it more difficult for a dog to come if they have 3 syllables or more? Someday when I get a German shepherd I want to name them after anime characters or Pokemon such as

Gaara
Kurama
Neji
Entei
Moltres
Lugia
Zekrom
Charizard
Blastoise
Igneel
Akamaru
Lucy
Juvia
Sakura
Shikaku
Bee (killer bee)
Shippo
Articuno
Zapdos
Natsu
Madara
Sasuke
Sarutobi
Naruto
Renji
Goku
Vegeta
Piccolo
Shenron
Pikachu
and maybe others

Non anime names

Zorro
Lobo
Zeus
Koda
Teeka
Riley
Marley
Sirius
Nico
and maybe others

Not only do dogs have no trouble at all with multiple syllables, they also know they have more than one name. For example, my dog Gus knows he is: Gus Guster Gooster Gussy Gusty and The Gustinator.

All my pets have multiple terms of endearment that they respond to both individually and as a group.

My oldest dog, Peanut, who is kind of a doggie genius, has the biggest vocabulary. I do suspect that her meanings are more complicated than mine. For example, the word "cheeseburger" simply means a certain food to me, but I am pretty sure to Peanut it means "Oh boy let's ride in the car just me and mom and I get a bite of a yummy thing and all the other dogs are going to be SO jealous YAY!"

I think 2 syllable or less names are nicer for you. It would be hard to say a lot of those, though I am also a Naruto fan and pokemon is cool. I like Gaara and Negi.

Lisl knows both her first name and her full name.

Sometimes she doesn't respond unless I use her full name.

I try to use German names if the dog isn't already named when I get it.
