Oh they were great!!!
I also loved when new people would come up and ask what their names were. They would get so frustrated with him until about 10 minutes later when they FINALLY understood that he was telling them the names, not asking a question.

Remus is a cool name.

I haven't seen the modern sci-fi (I assume) reference but it originally came from Romulus and Remus - Twin boys who suckled from a wolf and founded ancient Rome...seems like it fits also with the wolf bit

Romulus and Remus - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Are you getting a pup from the litter as well? That's exciting. I already have my registered name picked out. Bohuslav, which is czech. Really the only german or czech B name I like that I feel is unique. "Little Boo" I had Cord picked out if it was going to be a C litter.

But I still don't really like that for a call name, so I'm debating. I really think I like Remus.

Romulus and Remus were twins that were raised by a she-wolf after their mother sent them down a river. When they grew, they fought over where to build a new city, so Romulus killed Remus and founded a settlement that he called "Rome". And that is the myth behind the origins of Rome

Star Trek took this idea and made the twin planets, Romulus and Remus. The Romulans enslaved the gargoyle-like Remans and forced them to work in Dilithium mines. But Remans were also mighty warriors and fought many wars for the Romulans, and often acted as bodyguards.

I just think Remus invokes an image of a large, powerful beast. That's my take behind it My boyfriend says it makes him think of a third member of Beavis and Butt-head

I realised I could name my boy (too late) cos it defines him now!

I keep showing the pictures to my friends and they keep asking me which one is mine. I say, I dunno one of those squishy lumps of fuzz!! haha honestly, I wouldn't want my pup to be picked out at 3 days old. Knowing my luck I would get that super high drive sporty dog that acts more like a malinois
