Meet our newest family member as of 6:30 this evening, who does not yet have a name ...
Now that we have him, we are trying to pick a name that fits him. He is a Chocolate Labrador. I thought of Cocoa if he were a female, but alas, he is male. Then I thought of Buster Brown and online I saw a ton of names for chocolate labs, one was Hershey. My childhood Labrador was named Brownie and he was a yellow lab LOL. Have you ever owned a chocolate lab and, if so, what was his name? We may have to wait a few days to get to know his personality.
Yes. Our Chocolate Lab was a big teddy bear. He came to us from a previous owner and was already named Hershey. Cadberry sounds a little more upscale, and Giardelli is a bit of a mouthful. Godiva wouldn't work for a male. Nothing can steal your heart like a Lab pup.
Congratulations Mrs. Reaper....it's a boy! lol! Here's a few suggestions for your new, choccy addition I've come up with for you:- Bungle, Minstrel, Zippy, Sabre, Whisper, Play-dough, Huggy Bear, Slippy, Chortle, (Willy) Wonka, Kofi, Conker, Cat, Romeo , Captain Cola, Mr. Tickle, Pepper, Doctor Dribble, Beanbag, Sir Eatalot, Muzzletov, Niblet, Sergeant Sponge, Bo-bo, George's Nightmare, Elvis, Ploppy, Nugget, Scarf-Face, Mister Ted, Bigfoot, Aero, Sausage, D'ogtagnan, Caesar, Bumbag, Brownie The Second, Mowgli, Robber, Burger, Sweepy, Backdraft, Chewsy, Dinner For One, Crispy, Typo, Wobble, Bubble, Chicken, Riddler, Tinker, Moomin, Wiggle, Psycho and Gnasher. Oscar that you're thinking of sounds great. I hope you finally choose one that you really like. Have fun! R.Q.
LOL, wow, dear Romeos, you are very creative there with the many names! Thank you! LOL, "George's Nightmare" haha so true! Yes, this Brownie is actually brown HA. I have much to think upon for sure! Oh, Romeo is really cute too : ) hehe Hugs!!!
Yes, Romeo would be a very cool name, and I like Juliet too if we were to get a female. Well, my husband seems to like the name Max LOL, so that may be his name. I will run Romeo by him though, as it is pretty cool.
He is adorable! Congratulations!! My little brother got to name our chocolate lab puppy, and he picked the name "Snickers". It was probably the only kind if chocolate he had ever eaten. He was about 4 years old.
Hi Sha, thank you for answering. Oh, I am glad Jake had a long life and I know he gave your ex-boyfriend a life of unconditional love and you too. Yes, it is so sad when they leave us. I like the name Jake. Thank you for sharing!
Hi Laurie (Rayne), oh, I love that and how perfect. I answered Anna's comment too but I don't see it, now I can't comment. I love Charlie too, as in Charlie Brown. My husband likes Max, so I believe we have a Max now. I appreciate the great names!
What a cute puppy! I agree that waiting a few days will help to match the name to the character. Yes, so many names to choose from, aren't there? I'm sure you will find the right one. You will have to write a hub on this one.
OH, OH, OH, HOW VERY ADORABLE...I WANT TO HUG HIM!!
HIS EYES ARE SO BEAUTIFUL. IT TOOK US A FEW DAYS TO NAME OUR STRAY CAT, BUT MY CLOSE FRIEND HAS A LAB DOG. SHE AND HER HUSBAND NAMED IT OLLIE. I LOVE THAT NAME. ALSO OSCAR. IF I THINK OF ANY MORE NAMES I'LL LET YOU KNOW. WHAT A LUCKY DOG! GOD BLESS SPARKLEA
Congratulations on a new family member who will likely love you more than itself. I hope you are able to be the person your beautiful dog always will think you are. Me, I wonder if dogs aren't the only creatures I should even bother with.
Hi Wesman Todd Shaw, Thank you so much! Yes, indeed, we humans can learn a lot from dogs and their unconditional love. I can tell you are a dog lover no doubt! My husband likes the name Max, so that may be it lol.
Labs are the best. I used to raise and train them for obedience and for leader dogs. Love the breed.
With that out of the way, what are you into? Usually what I do is pay attention to their behaviour and adapt it to my interests. For example, we have a chocolate lab named "Coda." The reason is because my girlfriend and I both play piano and love music and we saved the puppy from the pound so the name represents ending that life for her to start a new one for the remainder of her "song" - "D.S. al Coda".
My previous pit/lab mix was originally named "Sage" (which is an herb of calming) but after seeing her behaviour, I changed her name to "Ginseng" (an herb of energy).
Personally, I don't like common names (Dakota, Cocoa [no offense], etc.). However, interesting takes on common names can be fun. When I worked in a vet clinic, we had a patient named "Phydeaux". We had a cat named "Sieti" (pronounced [see-AY-tee].
Looking at the pic, I think "Cute Ass Dog" is a great name. hehe Maybe "CAD" for short. heh
Hello Craeft, Wow, oh, I love how you determine what to name your pets/dogs ...that is so awesome! LOL, he is indeed that!!! I like CAD too. Thank you for sharing and love your reasoning behind the names you choose.
Oh my, what an adorable face! I just want to squeeze and hug this little guy. He reminds me so much of our own black Labrador (mix from the SPCA) whom we named Tony Curtis. He is my constant companion and BFF. It is tough to pick out just the right name for your new friend but it will definitely come to you when least expect it. Enjoy that little bundle of love. Peg
My wife and I will be having our firs child in April and we have already started thinking about her name.We have agreed on a first name but not on middle name yet, we have three options, what do you like best?By the way...
