Help Me With a Name!

  1. Okay, so I've been obsessed with dogs lately. But, I need your help.

    Emma and I have decided on a Dobie for our next dog. I never repeat breeds after one passes away - it's just too painful for me. I was split between trying a female for the first time or going for another male, and I've decided to stick with males. We need some testosterone in the house.

    So, help me name my new doggie! Here's a pic of the line he's going to come from (we've already met the breeder and the dogs - they are WONDERFUL!!):

    So far, we've come up with two names:

    Tristan (Obviously my favorite )

    Help us out! Good male names...

    Get him first, and let him name himself....does work, don`t know why but it does....
    Dobies are neat dogs........but then so are Rotties....but I see where you`re going about not repeating breeds....

    I hear ya, cactus. Before I got Apollo, I was stuck between Apollo and Roscoe. Settled on Apollo when I got him.

    So far, they are loving Tristan over on the Rottweiler board.

    I like Duke too! It's macho and tough, like John Wayne.

    How about a favorite hero of yours? Or favorite TV/Movie character?

    How about Reeses...looks like chocolate and peanut butter.

    My dad had a Dobie--he was named Dylan, but for years we just called him, "Down, Boy!" He responded to that name the best.

    Hmmmmm, how about something a bit more German sounding? Tristan is a lovely name, but such a tragic figure. But what the heck? What difference does that make if you like the name?

    Ludwig is a nice name, and so is wolfgang. Wolfgang could be "wulffy" for short

    I also always think it's funny to call dogs that people are kind of afraid of/assume are going to be mean by little bitty sissy names. I named Good Dog Carl before I knew him well enough, but most of the time I called him Muffy. He thought that was funny. Before Carl, I had a dog named Flash - I called him dinkydoopy, but that was just for luvvy-duvvy times.
