Rogan, Rowan and Rohan are all names we've considered! The irish thing is huge, my hubby was born in Belfast, (we named our daughter Clover)!

we're not planning to show this little guy, he'll just be a pet, possibly get into agility or therapy, not sure, depends on his personality... Dugan's personality is really what I fell in love with, he's a sweetheart!
Rory's really cute and I like Rooster too! I hadn't thought of that one! Only thing is it reminds of me of the Musical, "Annie" and the nasty brother of Ms Flanigan! haha
I think we've actually decided on ... ROGAN Rogan \r(o)-gan\ is of Irish and Gaelic origin, and its meaning is "red-headed".
it's strong sounding, seems to suit him and I love it's Irish/Gaelic meaning!!
now, I just need to come up with something clever for his long name!! I thought we could even use the word Rogue in the long name possibly...
I love mummer's dance, love that song though the CD is mysteriously missing at the moment.
On registered names what about doing something that plays off the word red.
We imported a red dog from england two years ago and his name was resgisted as Red Butler, they called him Gable after clark gable who played Rhett in gone with the wind.
