I think Edward is fine for a girl, if you like it you like it
The piggy thing is hilarious LOL I could just see that.

Liesje My two GSDs have call names that have nothing to do with their registered name. Register however you want and call her whatever you want (though there are character limits for registered names).

robeangyalchen Just my experience: I love the name Zeus, i planned to name my GSD Zeus, talked with family members, they were against it ( why?? ) but named him Zeus when i got him. But i changed the name from Zeus to Tyson within a week, reason?? because all the people here asked me " what kind of name is Juice?", i explained, it's Zeus, not juice, the god of....well, after a week i was too frustrated to explain it to everybody..so i changed the name to Tyson.
Well, that was my experience, i still call him Zeus sometime, it's like his nickname. I call him Tyson Boy, zeus, Junge(A nepali word, that means not taking no for an answer)....my point is, you can have one name, suitable name for which you will not need to explain and still call him with other name as well.

hunterisgreat My dog is named "Beschützer des Jägers v. Sportwaffen", which means "Guardian of Hunter from Sportweapon kennels". Jäger for short. Ask me how tired I am of explaining my dog isn't named after a liquor or shot. You'll get much more PIA for naming a female "Edward". It will wear on you

Sarah~ I named my GSD Mr. Eko after the character on Lost, people always question it and look at me funny lol. I have always named my pets off the wall names. I named my cat Johnnycakes when we thought he was a girl (he was a very fluffy kitten and my first cat had no clue how to tell gender) until one day I noticed his testicles.........

I named my APBT Xena, after the warrior princess, lol, and my golden who passed away was named Shiva after the character in the Final Fantasy series.

OriginalWacky Hmm, I've had several pets that had names that didn't quite go with their gender... a female guinea pig named Fred, a female kitten named Norman, a male cat named Lassie, to name a few. I've also had a parakeet named Teekarap, a bird named Cujo, a dog named Kitten... yeah, I like using different names.

IOsmom I don't think it's stupid at all. I think creative names are the best. Our dogs' names are Callisto and Io, after two of Jupiter's 4 most visible moons. We plan on getting a female in about a year and naming her Ganymede. I'm a huge science nerd, obviously ;P
