Before I got Ollie I was all set to name him Dean because I'm a huge Supernatural fan and my golden is named Sam.

But I'm also really into British humor and anything having to do with the UK and its my dream someday to move to England. So I listen to these English guys(most of you here would probably have no clue who they are unless you're a huge nerd too so I won't explain lol). Anyways one of them had a dog named Ollie and I feel in love with the name.

When I went to pick Ollie up from the breeder I still hadn't really settled on a name but on the way home the name Ollie popped into my head and it seemed to fit him more then Dean. Even though I know it's less noble and manly..

I name alot of dogs....I like predator names.....especially big cats, and do play on the spelling of them....

When I was naming my C litter - I had not picked out anything for Csabre yet...I had the litter out at the equine clinic and my friend Jack, the vet - who had a second practice in Cairo Egypt (I got to go to be a tech on surgery and help out in general!) and who had shown Arab horses as a kid - looked at her and said ....'Name this one Shetan" Arabic for devil - and Walter Farley's Black Stallion's name....I said - can't - it is a C litter - He laughed and said "So - put a C in front of the S!" I thought about that and decided she was Csabre! I also like to use a traditional German name in a litter, no people or real common names, and if there is one that can relate to Egypt, that too...have had Giza, Cairo and Kairo....LOL my Bengal cat is also Giza....I get stuck on the ones I like!!!

Salem is named after Salem, MA. I went there and fell in love with the town!

Also, it's fitting because he's pure black.

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your friend. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion. - Unknown

Zeke, I honestly don't know. I love Z names, Z is my favorite letter. But oddly enough, all growing up, for 10+ years, I wanted a german shepherd named Captain. When I FINALLY got my first german shepherd, Zeke just popped into my head

Luther - my ex named him after a german shepherd my sister had named Luther. Means warrior in old german. I love that name.

As for my new puppy, who arrives in 12 days (YAY), no name picked yet.

Because it's a B litter, registered name will either be Bohuslav (only B czech name or german name I liked) or Berlin (saw it in a B litter from another breeder, even though I commonly see it used for females I actually really like it as a "pretty" yet masculine enough name for a male).

As far as call name, I have 3, and just decided I will wait until he arrives to pick which one I like.

First is obviously Berlin, but that means I would need to decide on that sooner as I should get papers to register any day now. Would be stupid to register him as Bohuslav but then decide to call him Berlin when that could of easily been his registered name.

Next name is Zombie. I was actually at a Rob Zombie/Marilyn Manson concert when the name popped into my head. Rob Zombie is AMAZING, zombies in general are just cool (although way too popular at the moment), and I think it would be a very neat and unique name for a large dark sable male german shepherd. "No Zombie, No bite!"

Third name is Remus. After Star Trek. Remus is the twin planet to Romulas, and the Remans are a powerful, gargoyle like race that are commonly used as warriors in Romulan wars. Star Trek Nemesis was just an amazing movie, IMO, and that's NOT just because I love the ever sexy Tom Hardy The roman mythology behind the name is cool as well - Romulas and Remus were twin brothers that were sent down the river by their mother and raised by a she-wolf. When they grew, they fought over where to found a city, and Romulas eventually won when he killed Remus. Hence the founding of Rome. The she-wolf ties in to the german shepherd breed. PLus I think it's also a very intimidating name for a large, dark sable male.

Downside to that name, I have a snake named Draco after the dragon constellation, and people are already constantly asking me if I named him after Harry Potter. Throw in another Harry Potter name, and I'll NEVER be able to deny the connection! lol

I can only imagine! Lol! I had a hard enough time deciding upon a name and it was just me, with *some* input from my sister and mom. Glad you went with Bear though, because da bears are awesome, and well, Bear looks like a bear

How Did You Come Up With Your Dog(s) Name?

I named my girl Charlie because I had originally planned on getting a male but she stood out to me and I couldn't decide on a female name so I gave her a tomboy name. Charlie = Charlotte
