I agonize over names- and tend to regret them to a point.

Kiah my aussie was easy- i wanted an ausie name- which it is- a friend.s mom is aboriginal and suggested it. Her registered name was harder- her breeder wanted to call her somethign to go with Kiah (which means from a beautiful place). We settled on Almost Famous- which started my theme of Movie names.

Bella- well that was my kid- her registered name is Silken Twilight- again movie theme- so Bella just played into that. ITs a bit "typical poodle" type name for me- but it fits her and works. and well my daughter was 10 when we named her at least it wasnt princess (We have a cat named Prince)

Hush- was suggested by a friend. her reg name is Ravenwoods Little Black Book. I was thinking of Secret- but then a friend brought home a new pup and named it secret. So a friend suggested Hush- i lloved it- short, easy to say- different from my other dogs names. Fabulous. Until she grew up found her voice im constantly going HUSH HUSH HUSH HUSH OOH SHUT UP !

I named Max, but I have a nick-name for him now. I wish you could wait to see what name they actually fit into.
Buddy-Boo is his nickname. lol For some reason it fits.

On our way to pick up our puppy we knew we needed a new name. His registered mane was Malcome. It didnt do so my daughter and I decided on Dexter. We wanted a two syllable name...one that we could abbreviate to one syllable...therefore Dex. We tossed names around for hours but Dexter fit. BTW we had never seen the TV show "DEXTER". Some ppl tell me "you named him after a serial killer" lol.

But actually the simple fact is that... it suited him. I remember a couple of comments from people when they asked his name..."My God, it even suits him." Didnt understand what they meant at the time, but they watched the show. We were looking at a puppy and he was so handsome, distinguished looking, and a little shy. Now at 9 mths, he is comming into his name and maybe a little like the Dexter on TV. Very handsome, very smart (almost too much), fun loving but distinguished at times and if you look into those eyes the serial killer in him will take your heart.

We're a Z family. My name is Zoe, my boyfriends is Zach, so we wanted to keep the trend going. Our top choices were Zion, Ziva, and Zora (from Zelda). Zora fit her personality the best, but I still like the other choices Maybe for a future poodle.

Default How did you pick your dogs name?

I didn't get to choose Sheltons name since he was a service dog in training and the sponsors, or in his situation, the breeder that donated him into the organization named him. She named him and his brother after the country singer Blake Shelton so hence his name is Shelton and his brothers name is Blake haha. His "other" name is Kim's Moon Prancer. Kim because that's my last name, moon because he's white (and jumps like he's in zero gravity) and prancer because he prances and hops when he's excited

Awwww... How sweet! My little guy is named Dexter! When I first saw him I knew that he would live up to his name. Didn't know anything about a serial killer!

LOL Neither did I. But its a show about a really good, bad guy. I guess he is a doctor who delivers his own justice to serial rapists, petiophiles, murderers etc, that keep beating the system. .....its my sisters favorite show....I havent seen it yet.

When I thought of the name Dexter I saw an intellegent, attractive and preppy type. It suits

Our guy came with a grand name for such a little dog, so I changed it to something that suited his personality - Andy. He's such an Andy.

That said, I still call him The Pood. Poodly Bits. Mr. Pood. Der Poodleman.
