|Canderson061||Again thank you all for your replies and helping me confirm what I already knew was a good, unique name. Luckily, I stuck with Atlas and not the first thing that popped in my head, which was Crash Bandit...... This was my first day on this website and first post. I hope to learn a lot about the breed I love so much, specifically puppies. Another first. I've always rescued adults.|

|Calea||At first I was going to say Duke, but after giving it a bit of thought, Atlas seems better for a German Shepherd. Duke could be any old dog name, but Atlas sounds special and GSDs are special!!|

Back when I first got my first GSD bitch puppy, I named her Arwen. I got all kinds of flack from my family. When she passed on, everyone in the family loved her, and her name and she grew together into all of our hearts.
I like Atlas, more than Duke. It is highly a personal preference. But I like names that are two syllables for dogs, though some of mine have three, and then there is Joy, who I call Joy-Joy or Joyful. And Bear who is called Bear Cub. And Babs who is Babs or Babsy. I just think for some reason two syllables works better. Odessa is called Odie. And Hepzibah is called Hepsi.
Atlas sounds like someone very strong with great beauty. I like it.
