Hello everyone,

My bf and I are getting a puppy, we're soooo excited. But we don't get along in picking a name, so far we've got: Pem. That's really the only name we both like.

We're Belgian, so not every english name sounds right ofcourse. But suggestions are welcome though! We're looking for a short name, max. 2 syllables.

21st of March we're going to pick her up, can't wait.

I like proper names to reinforce the idea that this is a person.

If I had a blackface tri, I'd name it Procyon (Pro for short).  This is the bright star in Canis Minor, Orion's Little Dog left of Orion, upper-left of Sirius (the Dog Star in Canis Major, Orion's Big Dog).  Procyon is also the genus name of the racoons -- the mask.

I don't really know why but I've had a food theme for most of my pets. It started with Crackers, an English Springer Spanial. I've had cats named Pickles, Pepper and Strawberry. A yellow lab named Peaches. A dachshund named Rasberry. Called him Razz for short. Skipper, my previous corgi, was an anomaly to the food theme. And now I have Jeli, which is the welsh way to spell jelly. I have future food names already picked out... Just in case;).

You can also name a pup after someone/or another pet. My Livvy was named Olivia after a woman I admired. Bella was named after a stray Bella we found as a pup.

Our great nephew is named Max but our dog Max is a rescue so I didn't name him.

Thanks everyone! We'll just have to wait untill we have her then, but do some Welsh name searching in advance.
I also like the idea of picking a name from a a book or tv show I like. But those are the names my bf doesn't like. I wanted Dexter for our cat, but he hated that. Haha.

Oh, pick something you like and have a positive association with.  If you want a well behaved dog, don't name it Rowdy....

I agree with Jane and Linda,  the dog itself will suggest the right name to fit it's personality.  Once you have the pup, a certain name will seem to "fit" and another will not.  It may be one of the names you looked up, or it may be one that just pops into your head. It's all part of the fun!

I like to name my pets after characters in my favorite books, or TV shows. My pets right now are named Shippo, Eevee, and Faye. =)
