Male name for red and black!

We will be getting our puppy soon and are trying to come up with a strong name.

Please let me know your opinion on these two possibilities.

Also, please give us some more ideas on strong names - we are having a hard time coming up with and agreeing on a name!

I think both names are nice.... Zeus has a little more strength in it... how about a strong character from one of your favorite novels or stories? Beowulf? Poe?

Or how about observing the dog for a day and then choosing a name that fits the personality? My Belgian is a very regal and confident dog, but also very gentle... so we named him Bogart, after Humphrey Bogart.

How about a reference to your own heritage?

I don't know if you would like it, but what about balder, or baldur.
I love the name, and it's after a god.
Its the kinda name if somebody doesn't LOVE the name they hate it.
My next dog will either be named that, or blink.

If you are into movies, think of a movie with a character who has strong name that would fit.
Like LOTR- Aragorn, Gladiator- Maximus, etc.

I voted for Zeus, because that's the name I have picked out for when I get a puppy

My friend has a dog named Stryker.. He's her daughters therapy dog. Love the name but he just doesn't seem like a Stryker.

Jesus was also from the line of Judah.

We named both our current dogs after characters. D'Argo is a character from the SciFi series, Farscape and Strider is from LOTR.
