What are your dog's names?

In an effort to name my upcoming puppy, I thought I'd just ask everyone what are the call names of your dogs, past, present and/or future. It doesn't have to just be GSDs either. I'm really bad at coming up with my own ideas, usually I see something I like and copy it

Re: What are your dog's names?

Currently have Zena & Lola. Previous dog was Sasha, and long ago Max & Lance. Other dog names in our extended family are/were Chyna, Gunner, Sudo & Jansen. I really like the name Jansen, but he was a mean dog. LOL Do you know if you are getting a male or female?

My 2 dogs ~Zena, 12 years & ~Lola, 2 years
My cat ~Mr. Kitty, 5 years
~RIP Sasha GSD

Re: What are your dog's names?

We're currently on the Mexican city theme, thus Campeche (Camper) and Mérida (Meri).

Before that, we were working on the hockey theme, Zamboni (Boni, Bean) who is still very much with us. Gretzky (Grover) and Robitaille (Tai).

And I had, before all of these, a Collie/St Bernard named Chambona (Chami) which means "clumsy one" in Spanish because when she was a pup, she had GIANT paws and couldn't stay upright.

I also often call all of them either Mijo and Mija (meeho and meeja) which mean literally "my son" or "my daughter" as terms of endearment.

Why don't you pull out guide books and maps of towns/countries you've visited (we'll be driving through a state and I'll see a sign for a town and think, "Natrona, that's a good name for a dog."). Or hobbies you like (wine? sports? books? movies? characters? poets? authors?) People from history you admire (inventors? historical figures? philosophers? architects?) Or simply, ideas you really believe in. Do a search on all the different translations for the word "peace," or "simplicity," or "bravery."

You'll come up with a couple options. Then when you meet your dog, the pup will tell you which name works best for him.

That's what works for us. We have several passions. And we kind of go with that.
