    I had a friend years ago who named their Llasa "Useless."  Cute name, but not appropriate for this dog.  This little thing was far smarter than both her owner and me.  After a painful break-up in my 20's, I unexpectedly took over the care of a pup and named him Solo to represent how I felt at the time.

    I currently own an Italian Greyhound whose name should be Monster or Spite Pooper.  This smart little thing refuses to poop if he sees any sign at all that I'm going to leave the house - if I open my closet door, if I fix coffee, if I turn on the bathroom heater - all will lead my little darling to hold it until I leave.  At home, no problem, as he gets kenneled for the few hours that I'm away.  But, if I happen to be at my boyfriend's when I leave where there is no kennel, then, of course, nice little presents for us upon our return.

    His name is, however, Winston.  Cute story:  When I went to get him from the rescue center, my sister-in-law was with me.  She was holding him on the way home as we were talking about a name.  I thought it should be something regal or Old World or with some sound of importance or foreign since he is an "Italian" greyhound.  She suggested Winston.  I said, "Oh, so his whole name would be Winston Churchill?"  And she said, "No, actually, I was looking at that empty pack of cigarettes in your floorboard."  Winston Ultra Lights and I have been fast friends for the past five years.

    Any interesting stories behind your pet's name?  Would love to hear them.

      Never had a dog. Had a turkey though and we called him  "Dinner".

      Appropriate for this time of year- funny what memories these questions bring up.

        A good friend of mine had a pet turkey.  That was the craziest thing I've ever seen. His name was Tommy.  Tommy followed him around everywhere.  We were there for an outdoor 4th of July bbq and Tommy would come up to you and want you to pet him.  Every time his owner would laugh, Tommy would gobble.  It was so cute.  Thanks for reminding me of that fond memory.

        Yes, Paradise, everyone remembers (the) Alamo.  smile

      Amadeus was playing on radio whilst driving to SPCA, however he fell asleep on me so I took him home.  Muggle arrived amidst Harry Potter madness, Kuee was a play on words, I got him when discharged from QE2 hospital, and he had a diamond on his back.  Ngeru is the word for cat in the language of New Zealands indigenous people the Maori, Masque had a mask over her brow and nose, so short for Masquarade. Ngeru is now called DP, due to the fact she goes wild same time every night and her pupils are so dilated there is no iris evident. DP= Dilated Pupils I love finding new names for my friends pets also. I did ave a wierd friend who called his dogs Tampax and Scrotum, with two cats Tess and Tikles, put them together, and another friend called her two cats Benson & Hedges (NZ ciggies)

      My pet dogs name is Lucky - because she has two brown patches one on each of her eyes -

      When I went to buy a pup she stood out because she had two almost identical brown patches - so that was it I was in love and hooked -

      So that's how my new found best friend got the her name of Lucky - as in Lucky for her she had 2 brown eye patches - turned out to be very Lucky for me - she is a really a super great clever Jack Russell

      My dog was a rescue when he was only about a year old.  He is a red headed chow-chow named Berry Kim.  Berry, because he looks like a straaawwwberry, and Kim, because he is a Chinese fighting dog!   He also responds to "dumb-dumb" and "red-headed-menace" .  We love our "Berry-kins"..

      LOL...my stepbrother's dog also has that distinguished name.

      My ex had a dog that didn't bark at all when he brought her home from the shelter, so he named her "Dingo." When it was discovered that not only could she bark, but did so with much enthusiasm and regularity, her name was shortened to "Ding." After I came on the scene and got to know her, her name morphed yet again to truly reflect her personality..."Dingbat."

But she is far from an angel. lol she bites and runs around like a maniac...she is hilarious to watch. so mom said we should name her Buffy since she likes to bite and has drawn blood. so Buffy it is lol

    We have had two Rhodesian Ridgeback's.  They are known for the ridge of hair that runs down their spine that grows in the opposite direction.  So, we aptly named our first one Ridge. 

    The second Rhodesian Ridgeback came at a time when we were arguing with some Northern (Yankee) friends of ours about what you call a knit cap that you wear on your head in the winter.  Down here in the south, we call them toboggans.  Up north, they only know toboggans as a sled.  This playful argument had gone on for months.  When we bought our dog I threatened to name him Toboggan just to annoy them.  I ended up naming him Toby, short for toboggan.

    This may get a little convoluted, but:  As a boy, one of my favorite books was My Friend The Dog by Albert Payson Terhune, a true lover of collies.  The book was a collection of his short stories, and in one, the star was not a collie...but a wolf. 

    The wolf became close friends with a fugitive who set up camp in remote woods.  One day the authorities arrived to arrest the man...the wolf attacked the lawmen and was shot to death, which gave the man a chance to escape.  Except as I recall, he didn't, but was arrested while holding the dead wolf in his arms, crying. 

    He had named the wolf:  "Collie".

    The second dog I adopted, named Roxanne, was mistreated by her former owner. She was already 2 years old and I didn't want to confuse her by giving her a completely different name. But I didn't want to keep her old name given to her by her irresponsible former owner.

    So I came up with the name Rocket, after Roger Clemens who at the time had just beaten a pitching record. Weird name for a female dog, but it fits her perfectly. She's an extremely high-energy dog, and runs at full-speed ahead, as fast as a rocket

    A dog named Ever-buddy (sounds like everybody).

    The host of the party said to her dog - "Everbuddy get off  that couch!!"

    Her dog..including her guests got off the couch.

    We used to have a boxer that my son named Tyson -- after Mike (blech) of course.

    We then had a lab/shep mix that my son named JD. My son's name was Jonathan, but everyone called him JJ. His best friend was a kid by the name of David Jordan that everyone called DJ. So JD was an obvious choice. It fit in with the boys' names and stood for "Jonathan's dog". smile

      LOL, sounds like my Willow...she chases everything that moves, though, and has been frustrated that the paws which fit her 13lb frame are too small to catch grasshoppers between them tongue. At first glance a lot of people think she's quite ugly, but once one gets to know her expressions and lively body language the unanimous opinion is that she's unbearably cute big_smile.

      Here's what she looked like a little over a month ago, fresh out of the shelter (she's gained weight since, and some discolored fur has been shed)

    When we lived in France we got a Boxer puppy.

    They have this 'thing' in France (well certainly in rural France) where you are supposed to name your new pet something beginning with the designated letter for that year. The year we got our Boxer pup was the year of the letter 'N'. When we picked him from the litter there was already a Napoleon and Nougat, for example...

    I don't know why but we chose Nobby!


    He was a wonderful dog, a real character, but sadly Nobby is no longer with us - I miss him still sad

    I don't know about anyone else, but the movie 'Marley and Me' really got me. I'm pretty sure I couldn't name my dog Marley now.

    I have some tips for Dog Names on my website RoyalPetVet, but the best names I have heard was for two labradors called Bonnie & Clyde.
