Thanks, I find one day I will like one name and then the next day I will like a different name, lol. It's so hard to find the perfect name, lol.

As an owner of a "Jax", I must point out that, out of all my dogs, it's been the easiest name to yell both over and over in the house and outside at the top of my lungs across the park
Being one syllable, you can't really shorten it, which confuses the dog when you start messing with their name.

I know what you mean, I have been practicing yelling different names to see which one was the easiest. People will soon start to think I'm crazy, lol.

Thanks for the input so far everyone, keep it coming

I voted for Jaxx, but I also like Kain. It looks like by your poll Jaxx and Kain are the front runners.

We were down to two names, Gunner and Luke. I liked Luke but a two syllable name just sounded better to me.
So I guess you can see which we eventually chose.

I can't really choose one, although I must say I don't like Tyson just because I've met Mike Tyson and he's not a nice guy. And that's all I can think of when I hear it.
