Default Name just isn't working...

Hello all! So, I've had my pup for three weeks now, and I've been iffy on his name (Zuko) the whole time. He answers to it at this point. Thing is, there's not really any other names on my list that I love either. These names are: Dante, Basco, Sokka, Rufio (which I love, but I don't want to accidentally call him roofie for short ) and Grimm (which seems pretty common these days). I'm just looking for some more input. And I'd love some other suggestions!

Some pics of my man for inspiration~



(also, I'm sorry if this isn't in the right section)

Personally I love that name! I'd keep it I don't know of any dogs with that name.

Avatar fan I see

You'll find something that sticks. I like Lara's name but she is called by other things wayyyy more often than her actual name, you'll find one !

Don't know what to tell you except I'm having the exact same issue with my boy Sarge. I really don't like the name, but he is answering to it now and I don't know what to change it too. Good luck!

That expression in the first picture is sooo cute! I cannot think of what a cute name would be for him. Though Zuko is really cute. He looks like a Jack.

I agree- the "o" sounds too close to "o". Zuke is great
