    Re: New Puppy! Input needed

    I'm always partial to choosing a name with two syllables & ending with the "ee" sound such as Heidi, Toby, Honey, etc....

    name it after a movie character with a sweet name.

    Miho for example. or John McClane.

    PUPPY NAMING TIPS


    Keep it simple. Dogs grasp brief orders, so short and sweet says it best. Names with just a couple of syllables work well.

    Don't confuse the issue. Your puppy's name shouldn't sound similar to any commands. "Fetch, Fletch!" and "Stay, Ray" will only befuddle your pup.
    Publicity hound. Since you'll be calling your dog's name in public, loudly and frequently, make sure it's not a name you'll be mortified to yell. "Butthead" may be funny in the privacy of your frat house, but it won't sound great at the dog park.

    Consider the kids. You're right; "Fluffy" doesn't illustrate the noble nature of your Champion Irish Wolfhound, but kids appreciate simplicity, too. Register the fancy schmancy name with the AKC.

    Don't name the pooch after a family member. Naming your baby after Uncle Norbert will keep you in the will, but naming your pup after him may not. Ask first before bestowing such an "honor" on a friend or relative.

    Old dog, new home? Try and keep the name your adopted dog already owns. If you must change it, stick with similar sounds. "Barney" becomes a terrific "Farley" with ease.

    Try it out. When you find a name you like, give it a test run for a day or two. If it feels natural, it's a keeper! Otherwise, move on to the next name on your list.
