Favourite name for a puppy?

    Favourite name for a puppy?

    I'm probably going to get a another dog within the next few months or so - a bitch and probably a Golden or Flatcoat Retriever. I have no idea about names and sometimes you can't tell what name will suit until you see the dog. But do hubbers have their own favourite names for a female dog?

    This is a neat question... For some reason, last weekend, I looked up all the meanings behind the names given to pets in my life...  The female dogs have been Sam (Samantha), Jesse, Tessa, and Cissy.  To name Tessa, I called out names to her until she answered to Tessa and looked at me.  She ignored the rest!  All the best to you and your pup!

    I tend to name my female dogs after flowers and my male dogs after watch brands. I have had Timex and Rolex, the watch dogs (heehee). I have also had Daffodil (Daffy), the lab; Pansy, the sheltie; and Iris, the mixed breed. I usually pick the name after I get them too.

    I like the traditional ones like Fido, Spot, Spike and Rover.  Also love creative names like Hans Solo, Chewie, Gabby, Sparkle and Shadow.  Giving your pet a name often requires observation of his habits and then naming then accordingly.

    Hi Seeker7.....Yes! We have a golden retriever (he was named Zack by my husband)...but I think an amazing name for a golden retriever would be "sundance"....I think it reflects their personality! I loved this question...thanks for asking smile and I wish you the very best with your new pup!!!

    I had a dog called Beltaine once because she was born in May. I like MoonFairy's Sundance name too
