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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
