Default How Did You Come Up With Your Dog(s) Name?

I came up with Remington after relentlessly checking "german shepherd dog names" "baby names" and all sorts of sites. I had a list of like 30 names that (ex) BF axed all of them. I wanted Remy as a sort of "protection" dog-not attack or be mean dog, but since I was home alone a lot, just something to make me feel secure. Remington, being a gun brand, I thought- how funny would it be if I could say I have my own Remington protection

Now, almost every time I am asked what her name is, and I say 'Remington,' almost every one has the same reply... "LIKE THE GUN?!" hehe. I didn't name her specifically after the gun, but I always say, "yes, like the gun."


How did you come up with your beloved fur-child's name?

Lisl is named after the Countess Lisl von Schlaf from the James Bond movie For Your Eyes Only.

A lot of women think she is named after von Trapp's eldest daughter Liesl from The Sound of Music.

Different spelling.

Finnian was just a good Irish name as his AKC name is Finnian the Irish Lad.

Cheyenne came from being born in Cheyenne, Wyoming.

Cheyenne, just because we liked the name.

Panzer, after the "german tank" reference. And Panzer's registered name is Faegen, which means Joy!

We got Lucky when I was 12 and my sister was 10. On the way home the parents said that we were "lucky" to get her and it stuck.

Shania came to me with that name. She has certainly lived up to it.

I'm German, and always wanted a GSD named after the city of Berlin for as long as I can remember. Lol.

Diesel was named after my favorite perfume lol and she was mostly black so that too... Penny was named after Penny off of the show the Big Bang Theory as that character is sooo adorable so I named my puppy after her I will be getting a male either in the summer or in the fall and I will be naming him either Leonard or Sheldon (also characters from the show )

The last dog I named was Linus in 1985, Oh yes and Oscar in 1988-- my kids naimed Rainbow, my daughter named Toby for a T litter, I had a list and picked Cyra from a C litter list - Grim and Beau already had their names.

Way back Arlo was named for Arlo Guthrie and Waggles from a book I read in grade school called Waggles and the Dog Catcher. I named Linus for Linus Pauling, and Oscar becase I just liked the name.

Dexter is named after Dexter Morgan from the TV show. I have always loved the name - and the Dexter books. We just got him a Dexter Morgan name tag, and the lady said "You named your dog after a serial killer?" No ma'am, I named my dog after a fictional character. :-)
