puppy name requests...

dear bloggers,
it's me, jenna! jeneane's little daughter. i am trying to name my puppy. it is a girl. she's about two months old. a german shepherd mix. half floppy, half standup ears. black and tan. i need help naming her. some of my favorite names so far are grace, dori, chloe and pickles. my mom and dad only sort of like those. except mommy likes grace. they said to ask you.

Do you have some puppy names?

she sort of looks like this, except younger.



love,
Jenna

Hi, Jenna! how about "floppy"?

Jazzy? Maxie? Gretchen?
I'll bet your dog is adorable, Jenna!

If you are going to call your dog to come, it is very good to have a name with an 'O' in it. So, Chloe would be good. The sound of an 'O' carries far and dog can hear it well. To me, this dog looks like Cocoa, and if she were my dog that is what I would name her.

Jenna, tell your mom you cannot call your dog Grace. It's against the law. Which law I don't know, but it just is. Pickles is good.

nice german names like Zella and Lise seem appropriate http://www.puppydogweb.com/names/country.htm

Jenna, sweetie, we need a picture of the dog herself to be really helpful, but I'm thinking "Peggy."

Jenna, I agree that the dog's name should be one that you like saying aloud. I like Dori. It has a sing-song quality. And, if you have to call the puppy from a distance (let's hope not), you can yell Doooorrrrreeeeeeee! This doesn't work too well with Grace. Try it.

Jenna,

For a German shepherd, I like the name Klink, which is the sound her dog tags will make when she walks.

Or, how about "Wuff"? That way she'll already know her own name.

On the other hand, we had a dog named "Cha-cha" because she waddled when she walked, so you probably don't want to trust my judgment when it comes to naming dogs.

This is Jenna. THANK YOU! I need some more choices. A LOT. I like these. You are the BEST friends we could have! She likes to chew. She peed on the carpet. SHe lays down to eat. We will take pictures today. Daddy wants to call her Peeing Machine. I don't like it. It's horrible.

How about Snuffles?

I think you've picked some good names. I know a dog named Zoey, which also has a long "O" sound. One of my friends has a dog named "Dogma," which always makes me laugh. (Ask your mom what that means!)

hi jenna, our dog, who is also a german shepherd mix is named gracie. she was already named when we got her from a shelter but the name suits her well. pickles seems like a pony name. i named frank's dog molly bloom which is a good name from a book. here's a list of puppy names that might give you some ideas: http://www.puppydogweb.com/names/single.htm
how about athena? you could call her thee-nee. but you really have to see a dog to know what to name her.

Woof, wooof, Jenna!

My name is Frieda (pronounced Free-Dar).
I am Stu Savory's bulldog bitch; we live and blog and chase cats in Germany.
Here is my photo :- http://home.egge.net/~savory//blog_mar_06.htm#20060331

You can use my name too for your dog if you like.
My aunt was called Wilma, that's an abbreviation for 'Wild Girl'.
She go to be 11. Wilma is a nice name too :-)

Whatever name you choose, have fun with your pup!

I recommend "Scout"... after the main character in "To Kill a Mockingbird".
It's got a gender clashing aspect to it as well that I happen to like for breaking stereotypes.

"Sophie" plays into the female lead in the "Da Vinci Code". Just thinkin' out loud.

Jeneane Sessum said...

Oh crap, i didn't know that stupid movie had a sophie in it, or the stupid book either. not interested--my brother in law had a wonderful loyal sophie for 16 years--that's the sophie i know. not some new age hyperventilated text.

I like Pickles best of all the names listed. Molly is a jolly name for a happy dog like mine, but in the final analysis, while dogs are thinking, loving, feeling creatures, they are more doggy than human so names like Pickles, and Rover, and Spike are actually good names.

One rule of thumb... when you call your dog her name should be recognizable to her. "Ermentrude" would not be a good name for that reason. "Here Ermentrude. Come here Ermentrude pup-pup-pup." You can see my point. Even though she is German, she probably would rather be called "Pickles" than "Ermentrude." Just thinking out loud here...

Frank said...

...or "Fang" would be a good name too.

Frank said...

You could call her Fangster.

Stu Savory said...

Of course you could call her "Freedom!".

Then you could shout out "Freedom!" just like Pete Seeger did, Jenna (get your Dad to tell you about Pete Seeger).

Or can you get arrested these days in Dubya's Merka for shouting out "Freedom!", Jeneane?

What is this cute puppy's name? It has sort of a funny nose.

@Frank,
homonymically speaking, it's a small bore. When it grows up it'll be a big boar.
Like me ;-)

I always wanted to call a dog something like Bill or Fred or janet or Susan, or something like that.

Plain names .. but Sophie is nice, and has a long honourable lineage, as in Aya Sophya, one of the architectural marvels of the world in Istanbul (6th Century)

Hey,
why don't you call your pup Elsie, or even Elsa.
Seeya,
