I really like the name Floki! I haven't even got my GSD yet but already know she's going to be named 'Dakota' after my home state. (N.Dak.)

LOL! I am an EET and I never considered naming a dog after anything in the industry. Funny because most of the units are names of the scientists that worked in the field, like Ohm, and Ampere, and Tesla, and Watt, and Bell -- decibel, So many of them: Coulomb, Siemens, Hertz. And then there are all the other laws, and jargan: Kirkoff's Law, Dead Nuts. -- of course I wouldn't want to name one of my boys, that.

Now I am going to sit here all night thinking about industry words that could be kool names for a GSD.

Our 1 year old is called Murphy. I get a lot of, "but that's not a good, strong German name!" from people who stop to ask me about him and pet him.
He named himself - when he was tiny and I would pick him up to take him outside he would say "murphmurphmurph" so Murphy it is!

Remington, being a gun brand, I thought- how funny would it be if I could say I have my own Remington protection [IMG class=inlineimg]/forum/images/smilies/wink.gif[/IMG]

Now, almost every time I am asked what her name is, and I say 'Remington,' almost every one has the same reply... "LIKE THE GUN?!" hehe. I didn't name her specifically after the gun, but I always say, "yes, like the gun." [IMG class=inlineimg]/forum/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif[/IMG]

How did you come up with your beloved fur-child's name?
My first GSD was named Rossi. It was the first gun my son got for his birthday ( could switch out the barrels and make it a 22 or 410). When we got our GSD, he asked if we could name her Rossi. Then my husband went on a gun naming phase, so we then had a Benelli, Ruger, Colt, and Beretta. Not all at the same time, this was over the span of years and years, but we always had to hear stories from other gun/dog owners. I’ve vowed to never name another dog after a gun! Lol. After we divorced, he eventually went on to beer, and since then has had a Killian, Sam Adams, Guinness, and PBR, Pabst for short. All labs or Golden’s

Brother in law was a pro bass fisher. He had a Reed, Coast, Skeeter, and Troller. Stopped paying attention after Troller, the guy was a jerk.
