Just an opinion but Sparta is more of a place than a name for a person or pet. Now if you like Sparta, you could just name him Spartacus? He was an enslaved Galdiator who was a leader in the uprising revolt against the Roman Empire. Now that'd be an awesome name. That would have my vote. As would Atlas or Achilles. Just some ideas. He'll be great either way.

Well, I like Stryker. Ammo is nice too, but not as strong sounding if you have to call it out loud, lol.
I've always favored 2 syllable names, and ones that should be emphasized on any one syllable, and starting with a consonant, not a vowel.
Sparta would be good for a female GSD, as it ends with the vowel a which tends to soften the name, to me it sounds feminine.
Rouge doesn't appeal to me, but since it's just my opinion, feel free to ignore it!


I suggest, if you haven't already done this, to speak each of these names out loud, shout it, say it softly, and see which one sounds better to you both.
Good luck finding your perfect pup!

Picked Ammo, no logic behind it, just preferred it over the others.

I voted Stryker, but I like Ammo, as well.
I also like Ruger, Luger and Recon.
Military names seem to fit GSDs, in my opinion.


Rouge... Um...no.

I don't know if the OP means Rouge as in the movie "Moulin Rouge" or if they meant to write Rogue like "The CIA opperative has gone rogue".

OP, If you meant to write Rogue, I like it, if it's Rouge, I don't like it.

Whatever floats your boat though, it's your pup.

Good point, i never thought of it possibly being a female name.

your perfect pup!
Ammo is a soft name. No hard consonants. I'd skip that one.

I gave my weim a soft name, Lillian. But I knew what to expect when I branched out to a different breed, and didn't adopt her expecting a biddable dog.

With my GSDs, I choose a one or two syllable name with a hard consonant, k or t, etc., either in the middle or at the end. Attention getters, to be followed by a command. If you can find a name that has two hard consonants, even better. My family has owned three generations of males named Skada. Norwegian for "storm damage"
