Hi,

We are getting a new male GS pup in a week. We have gone through so many names trying to see which one we like and which one we think would fit him. We are definitely going to wait until we bring him home, but we want ideas. We like unusual dog names, and short names.
Powerful names for a German shepherd dog.
We were thinking of "Taiko" which means Boss in Korean I think. Others are Mox, Daxo.. we want more ideas. Thank you.

Mine is Wolfgang. We call him Wolfie. I like Shultz and Axel as well.

If I ever get another male GSD, I'm naming him "Hawk."

The names we considered were Gus (because he was fat like Gus Gus from Cinderella), Ozzy, Marley, and finally decided on Zeppelin.

My mother always joked that if she got another GSD she'd name him "Lord". That way if people asked she could say "the lord is my shepherd". LOL.

Lol, see we love the name Boss, that is still high on our list, but Taiko means Boss, so we may do Taiko, we are still going to wait until we get him home and figure out his personality.

This made me laugh out loud.... too funny!

I prefer German names and try to stick with the more poweful names for males and dainty names (all in German of course) for the girls. ;)

My GSD's name is Frank, but my first border collie's name was Jack, he was 3 when my first son was born and quickly became their protector and guardian. for the next 10 years he was right there wherever the boys where.

We just got a male and named him Diego lol other names we had were Voodoo, Boss.

I wanted to name him Ronson or Janos.

We had the same problem, could lock down a name till he came home. Once our youngest girl started calling him Diego i knew it would break her heart if we didnt call him it lol.

I always liked Torrin, Gaelic for thunder. Was gonna use that for the male St. Bernard that I almost acquired. I think it would work well for a GSD as well. My current GSD's name is Birbo, from what I can find it means curious in Spanish. El Birbo = the curious! :) At least his previous owner named him well.

Axel is a nice name. We like that one! There are just so many to choose from!! lol. First Mox, then Boss, then Taiko, and Daxo... lol.. we are just going to see what he looks like, see which name fits. I also like Buck for some reason?!
