Ok so I finally decided on a hand full of names that I like for my new puppy.

I have no pictures as of yet. But...my puppy is a cream standard female.

The names I like are -


Bianca - means - white, pure
Lola - means - sorrows, Child of wealth (I just think this one sounds pretty)
Fiona - means - Fair, white, beautiful
Lilly - means - purity, beauty
Leela - means - (hindi) Poetic beauty
Misa - means -(Japanese) - beautiful sand

You guys tell me which one you guys like the best...I am having such a hard time deciding!



OH i did think of a awesome name for a Apricot male

Momo - its Japanese for peach

it's tough eh!?! those are all great names!! I've always like Bianca, I just don't know if I love it for a dog...
hmmm I think Misa is cute, and it's original... and Lilly is really cute too, just more common... lol
I don't think I'm helping!

They're all really pretty! I would stick with a 2 syllable name if you can, it's easier to call out. I suggest you stand yelling them all out and whichever slips off the tonge easily is the one!

I know quite a few Lillys and Lolas so I'm going to with either:

Leela (different spelling but I think this means lilac in French)
Fiona (never heard a Poodle named this)

If you have any aspirations of doing dog sports, it is highly recommended that you have a name that is no more than 2 syllables.

Of course that hasn't stopped me from having a Sabrina or a a Delilah.

I like all of the names you picked. Just keep in mind that Leela is also a variant of Leila (pronounced the same). This is Arabic for night beauty. Just figured I would mention it. I was thinking of using it for my black toy poodle I'm getting. Funny how the same word can literally mean different things in different languages.

I really like the name. Just thought you might want to know how some people may think differently than poetic beauty. Then again, she could have a mysterious side about her and have one meaning by day and another by night! Hmmmm, that sounds familiar! LOL.

Have fun. It will come to you.

When you finally get your puppy it will come to you...I had a name picked out and changed at the very last day because it just didn't suit!

I really like Bianca, but when i was trying to get my daughter to say some some of the names she really had a hard time saying Bianca and Fiona. I dont want to be mean and give our new puppy a name she cant pronounce. LOL

Like Cdnjennga said as well. I need to pick one I can shout out really quickly, not only for dog sport but for safety reasons too. If by chance my dog was running towards a car, I dont need to take 2 breaths to get my dogs name out.

Good Advice!

I like Leela and Misa. I love the meaning of Leela. If you watch a well put together poodle trotting around outside, it is like watching poetry in motion. They are so elegant and graceful, spoospirit and I never, ever tire of watching our spoos running and trotting, they are just so smooth and graceful.
