We had picked out Cassidy's and Keefer's names as our next female and male long before we were even thinking of getting another dog. Cassidy was named for a Grateful Dead song, and Keefer is a name from my husband's family.
We picked Dena's name when we put down a deposit on her at 3 or 4 weeks old. She was from a D litter, and we spent the next few weeks until she could come home narrowing down the possibilities. I found it on a names website as meaning "valley" or "from the valley", and she came from the Willamette Valley in Oregon.
We were still months away from considering a new puppy when we saw Halo (from an H litter) here on the board, and she was already 9 weeks old. We hadn't even begun thinking about names, and since we got her a week later we didn't have a lot of time to think about it. We both liked the name the breeder gave her, so we kept it.
I don't have plans for a new pet any time soon, and no more names in the works either.
