Help with female C & D names...

First I would just like to mention how wonderful these forums have been in helping me research this breed and prepare for my puppy. Thanks, everyone, for being this breed's online encyclopedia

She is going to be born sometime this week, and she may be in either of two litters, numbered C and D. This is the breeder's third set of litters as well, so there must be two words to go after the names. They've given me the option of naming her, and I am trying to brainstorm in advance. I like astronomy names, and the two words to follow in either case may be 'Milky Way' or something similar. I was thinking Celeste for C, or Calypso, but neither of the names are entirely there. And I have absolutely zero ideas for D names. Any ideas?

Well you missed the obvious Cassiopeia, lol. A couple others that sprung to mind Cygnus, Delphinus, Corona or Deneb.
I personally like Circinus, the compass, because that's what my dogs are.

What I do is pull out the dictionary. Maybe an unabridged one. And go through the listings under the letter. I like this method because it gives me the definition as well as a great selection of names.

The "Milky Way" has robbed me of any creative powers--you could go with Chocolate or Dark Chocolate. Not star-related, I know!

Don't know if you would consider astronomers but found a cool one. d'Arrest. Darra or Darri for a call name.

Heinrich Louis d'Arrest was a Danish astronomer.

I just liked the thought of the word arrest some where in a GSDs name.

Dione, one of Saturn's moons
Delta (I'm watching old episodes of Star Trek Voyager, they're in the Delta quadrant) ;-D

I prefer 2 syllable names, easy when calling.
