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

Love these stories! I wish mine could have been more creative. My next dog, I'm definitely wanting to name Charlie or Cheyenne. I say that now- but I can never really know until I get to know them!

When I got Remy, I wasn't even sure of the name for her, but she's turned into my crazy little pistol girl so Remington works perfect :-)

Heinrich... We wanted a good strong German name for him.
Blaise... She was from the vom Gildaf "B" litter and her collar color was red. So, I thought of "Blaze" but wanted it to be spelled different so I went with "Blaise".
Jerry Lee .. After the dog Jerry Lee in the movie K-9. It's one of my favorite movies.
Sadie.. We liked the name.
Emila .. She is named after her dad (Heinrich Konrad Emil). Very appropriate too. She looks and acts just like him!
Kodey.. We liked the name Cody, but wanted to spell it differently.
Thompson.. A name we had in our puppy names list for some time. We liked it, so Thompson it was.

My pack:
Heinrich (b. 12-10-06)
Blaise (b. 10-06-08)
Sadie (b. 02-08-10)
Jerry Lee (b. 05-08-10)
Emila (b. 04-12-11)
Kodey (b. 04-03-12)
Thompson (b. 11-21-12)
Phee (b. 04-29-13)

Mauser's reg name is Nator von Triton. He is from a N litter and when the breeder first started posting puppy pictures on the board people started calling him Poofster. When I decided I wanted him I said he needed a more manly name - like Poofinator. Hence the 'Nator' von Triton - Triton is the kennel name.

My Crested kennel name is Piquin. DH & I were out to dinner just after having brought Kaynya home and we were discussing kennel names. I said I wanted something that signified small but spicy because that's what they are. DH suggested the word piquin - a small but VERY spicy pepper. Add to that all the names have something to do with heat/hot/spice/fire and that's how I have the following:

Chimane's Spice it Up Piquin (Chimane is the breeders name) - aka Kaynya

Piquin's Some Like it Hot - aka Spike (DH gave him his call name)

Piquin's Super Hot - aka Clark (named by his first owners)

Piquins Too Hot To Handle - aka Fuego (spanish for fire)

Piquin's Super Hot Too - aka CJ, which stands for Clark Junior because he looked exactly like his father

Piquins Schezwan Princess - aka Chyna (named by her owner)

Piquin's Wasabi - aka Sabi (named by me)

My cats:

Banzai - because when we first got him as a foster he had a sore on the end of his tail. The tip of his tail was amputated but he managed to rip off the bandage and tear out the stitches. So the vet did it again ... and the CAT did it again. So we decided he had a death wish and came up with the name Banzai (he came from the rescue with the name Sunshine - ugh). We amputated his tail a third time and kept him drugged for two weeks to allow it to heal.

Cloe - the name just came to me.

Mocha - because she is a very dark brown cat.

I honestly can't remember what made me think of/want to name our pup Maximus. It's been a name I've had picked out since I was a kid that I've always liked for a dog. When I talked to my daughter, she loved the name as it's the horses name in "Tangled".

Other then Daisy I have never named an animal. Lucky was supposed to become Rocky but after listening to his tale of survival as well as we adopted and found out he had heartworm he appeared to have earned his name. . I knew nothing about picking names but as Daisy's parents were Prince and Princessa we called her Tsamparlis's Princess von Daisy. Yea a little pretentious but new dog parents. Daisy b/c I loved the book Princess Daisy. daisy b/c I wanted a friendly feminine name. Thunder and Cheverily obviously came to us named. I wont change a name unless it was something like Killer etc. Lucky maybe should have been called Forrest b/c he's not really brillant. We joke that he says"Im not a real smart dog but I do know love.Changing his name was a hurdle he just didnt seem to want to cross.

Daisy 11/26/99-7/25/12
Miss Chevy Cruz - 1/25/2013-1/29/15
Thunder -1/25/13 -7/25/15
Lucky-GSD -Rescue -2/16/03 - 03-21-16
Charlie- GSD-Rescue - 7-4-12

Karma Mototada

My wife thought "Karma" would bring good spiritual balance to our home.

His Middle name "Mototada" comes from Tori Mototada, who was a loyal vassal of Lord Tokugawa, Japan's first Shogun. He sacrificed himself with 30 Samurai defending Fushimi castle in 1600.

Our GSD Charlie was named for Charlie from All Dogs Go to Heaven. He matched the handsome scrappiness of Charlie so it suited well. However, Charlie is also the word for the phoenetic 'C' and started the trend for naming our German Shepherds from the phonetic alphabet.

Oscar was named Oscar because it fits him. Victor was the other option, but its way to masculine and dominating for my sweet and skittish boy. Oscar also means 'deer friend', which seemed suitable to his incredibly gentle and shy nature.

Both GSDs came from a shelter; neither one had names from the shelter.

Judas, or Jude for short, was my super sized yellow Lab that was my Christmas present from my then boyfriend now husband and his best friend. They found him, full grown, wandering the streets and that was my Christmas 'puppy'. DH's friend named him. He was high at the time so I dont know the reasoning lol.

LO

Oscar, in love since 12-7-12

Our pup is named Daisy. That was what our son (6) named her. It fits her quite well.
