Question by Christian Emter. Uploaded on January 04, 2010
I usually try to stay with short names of no more than two syllables. Make them too long and it sounds like you're auctioneering when you call your dog, too, I think shorter is easier to retain for them. Therefore I have Boone, Belle, Dixie, Emma, and Elvis (son's Rotteweiler, named after the Miami Vice alligator).
Think about it, but when you get your dog, wait a day or two. See if the name makes itself obvious.
One of our rescues was very underfed when we got him. He escaped from a fence I could swear he couldn't get through. I thought about naming him Houdini, until I heard my wife say, several times, "Well, aren't you slick!". So he's Slick.
077 is right, if you go with Remington, you could use Rem for short.
Sport is a good name, Ace or Buck, rem is good too. I am saving the name sport for my first dog.
well i went with the classic BUDDY and thats what he is hes my buddy ever where i go he goes with me
Meathead sounds good! Squint Eastwood named his bulldog that in one of his movies, which one? (Trivia) He also said "Go Ahead Make My Day"
I agree about one or 2 syllables--longer names are cumbersome for calling & training the dog. But Rem for short works. I like pepper--especially for a black or brindle dog.
Moishe... That wasn't "Meat"-head.
Remington is a good name, but as suggested earlier, I would go with a one or two syllable name easily distinguished when calling him/her.
GAGE! or BANG! KILLER! DEKE! ROSCOE!
shadow after my grandpa or smokey,brandi,gunner,bandit
much to my boyfriend's disdain I named my last litter of puppies LeRoy and LuluBelle. now he has to stand outside calling Loooo Loooo! come back here Looo Looo!
Great name. Winchester, Ruger, or Savage would work, too. Not Weatherby. Met a gorgeous model from Montenegro named Tika, so Tikka would be fine for a girl. I told an old girlfriend about a dream - I was holding her daughter's newborn baby. She called her Emms. We got her daughter a pug for Christmas. Her daughter, not knowing about the story, named the little puppy Emma.
we have a dog named Remmy short for Remington but i like the keep them simple also like Buck and things like that if they are a bit longer make sure they are easy to say
I like Tyson cause I love chicken! haha
I like one sylable names, it's easier to call the dog. Jack, jill, Belle, Bill, Blue, Sam, etc.
well we named our dog kringle because my brother believed in santa, so she is named kringle from chris kringle
oh yea... we got the dog for christmas that was the important part i forgot to leave out
THE OWNER OF THE GUN SHOP WHERE I BUY ALMOST ALL MY GUNS HAS A YELLOW LAB NAMED REMINGTON. HE ALSO HAS THE DOGS BROTHER AND NAMED HIM WINCHESTER.
Samson was the name of a shepherd collie mix I own as a boy. The greatest dog ever to walk the face of the earth. I have yet to own a dog that could wear that name.
I like go give my dogs "people" names like Charlie. If you ever see a Dalmatian with the name "Spotty", it's a good bet he was named by a small child.
Duke,Hercules,Conan,Magnum,Ideal name for hunting dogs..
slug or scooter sounds good
My Dobermans names are Rebel, Dixie, Diamond, Baby Girl, Maggie May, and my old half lab half pit is named Harley
Thanks you guys this really helped me out. MLH gave me a great idea on the name Ruger. Thanks everyone.
I have Duke Satin and a Grace. Lab Lab beagle and a (gonna screw this up) weimaweiner. But holy cow Rlowe357 I don't like feeding 3 dogs but 6 has to get costly. I thought 70 lbs a month was bad.
70 lbs a month we use breed st.bernards and we use to go threw 100 lbs a week
that was 2 full grown and 16 pups she had 18 but 2 died that was a long time ago i miss those old dogs so big but so gentle
My Great Dane is named Dublin. Irish Pride
