Well, we've had our little miniature poodle since Thursday and he STILL doesn't have a name. We've been calling him Puppy, Dog and Buddy, but I'd like to pick a real name for him.

Any suggestions?

He's a black, sweet, somewhat calm little guy (for a 14-week-old puppy, that is). He's very smart and wants nothing more than to be right with us. He's really happy-go-lucky.

His sire's name is Am. Ch. Clarion Camelot Quervo and his dam name is Am. Ch. Clarion Sweet Noelani.

My only real criteria is that the name doesn't rhyme with the word "no."

Please help me name my poodle!

My daughter named her spoo Chalumeau and we call her Meau (which rhymes with "no") Katy rectified this by teaching Meau German commands (since Poodles purportedly originated in Germany, Katy thought that would be appropriate) SOOOOO, we use "Nein" instead of "no" and "Sitz sie" "Platz" and "Zwinger" for sit, down and kennel...

Luckily Meau is a very smart dog and sort of trilingual (Canine, English and German!) :)

These are great! I love the "black jack" idea...

I wonder if the call name for Black Ty Affair could also be "Tux"

Keep em coming! :)

I keep telling my family that if my mini Beau was black instead of cream, we could have named him Licorice, cause he's always licking everyone!

Some cute boys' names I like are: Cooper, Mason, Parker, Briggs, Simon, Clancy, Murphy, Newman, Clyde, Trapper, Jasper, Rudy. There are also websites online that you can Google for name ideas...pick two or three and try each out for a few hours a day...one will click as you call him to you...just find one you are comfortable yelling outside! (LOL). Good luck! And congrats on your cute pup!

Well, we've been tossing it around for a while and we may have come up with something. We might name him Clarion's [something] Jagermeister (call name Jager).

1. His dad's name is "Quervo" so it would be keeping with the alcohol theme.
2. He's black, Jagermeister is black (sort of) and he is black.
3. Jagermeister is German and poodles are from Germany.

We're trying it out to see if it fits him...

Clarion's Top Shelf El Patron

Patron is top shelf Tequila and El patron (pronounced with a long o) means the Boss in spanish.

I do a very scraggly un neutered schnauzer with a filthy stainy beard named Jager....I picture that in my mind.

I liked alot of the names that Mandi gave but I'll add one more, Nicholas, Nick or Nicky. If I keep a male puppy, that's my name.

Clarion's Rob Roy (Robbie)
Clarion's Tom Collins (Tommy)
Clarion's Jet Fuel (Jet) ...... yes that is a cocktail
Clarion's Jet Pilot (Jet) ....... yep a cocktail
