Now we need a name for her.
We have such a hard time naming pets. It's a good thing we never had human children because I'm not sure 9 months would be enough to decide on something for a human child!
A few names for the puppy that we like:
* Charlie (it's kind of cute for a girl, plus our Ginger's first best friend was a boy dog named Charlie, so the name has ties back to her and warm connotations for us).
*Poppy (I like names from nature)
*Annie or Abbie
*Olive (I like this one more than Gregg; I think it's cute).
*Molly or Millie (they're so common, especially Molly, that we're not too excited about these, but we do like them).
So here's where you, my blog friends, come in! Please comment with a name (or names! as many as you have!) and give us some more suggestions. If we end up using a name that a blog reader suggests, I'll come up with a small prize to send that person as a thank you.
Here's another picture of the little girl, walking with her new big brother.
And curled up asleep at my feet.
I like to name pets according to their personalities or a prominent physical trait -- in other words, something that's special and unique just to them! It can take a few days of interaction for that perfect name to become apparent.ReplyDelete
I first thought of names that went with "George" like "Gracie" but you might be too young to remember George Burns and sweet Gracie Allen...ReplyDelete
Congrats to you and Gregg on your new puppy!
For some reason I love the name Daisy for a wee dog or cat. Thought you might like it, too. I know you'll let us know what you decide. Our neighbours named their little dog Chumley because they wanted him to be "chums" with everyone. It would be cute for a girl, too.ReplyDelete
I kind of like Clooney but I would also name black and white poodles Starsky & Hutch hehReplyDelete
Because of her color, I like Brandy. But I also like Poppy.ReplyDelete
Her little face says Daisy to me!ReplyDelete
Here's a name for you: Lucy, that way when she's bad, and she will be bad at times, you can drop the tone in your voice and sternly say "Lucille, don't do that."ReplyDelete
Billy, because the grampa inReplyDelete
southpark always gets it wrong and because Billy is a great name for a girl.whatever you choose- it will fit perfectly and she is a lovely little girl!

I don't have any suggestions. I'm just here to say congratulations!ReplyDelete
I'm so excited for you all! She is such a sweet little girl. Out of your name choices I like Abbie and Annie. If you wanted a "G" name to go with George you could use Geri or Gracie. I also like the name Daisy that some have suggested. The important thing is that you and Gregg are happy with the name!ReplyDelete
I like Gracie, but she is awfully sweet and no matter what you name her, this is a happy story.ReplyDelete
She looks like a Pepper to me, as in salt and pepper or Amber.ReplyDelete
My choice is odd, but then so am I: Brenda. And I have no reason why!ReplyDelete
I like Debby's suggestion for Gracie. There's the link to George and Gracie (Burns and Allen) from days gone by of course. but she just looks like a Gracie to me if that makes sense. Whatever you name her, just keep posting photos please.ReplyDelete
There is a little bird here in the UK called the 'Wheat Ear'. It is a very old name dating back to the Anglo Saxons. 'Wheat Ear' is not the actual name because the Victorians didn't like it. It was originally called, 'White Arse'.ReplyDelete
Of the names on your list, I like Millie the best though in my opinion it is not as good as one of my previous suggestions - Bella. Please run it past Gregg.ReplyDelete
I'm so happy for you and the puppy.ReplyDelete
I think that sweet girl looks like a Suzi.ReplyDelete
Out of your own list, I like Charlie, Poppy or Olive best.ReplyDelete
One of my favourite female names is and has been for a long time Matilda. You could shorten that to Tilda or Tilly/Tillie.
My suggestion yesterday was Jekka, but I also like Abbie and have you thought of Anya? My Mum's name was Grace so Gracie would be nice. A word of warning about Charlie.....everyone will refer to her as he. I made that mistake by calling my boy Lexi...he was always thought to be a girl. Had to change it to Alexi! Molly, Millie and Poppy are very common ( popular!)over here and I know several dogs with those names. Whatever you call her I shall look forward to hearing about her adventures. She is a lucky dog to have found you.ReplyDelete
Did you ever see the "Ewok Movie?" A brother and sister in it were called Mace and Cindel. Just loved the name Cindel! It was different and sweet at the same time! So glad you all get to love another pup!ReplyDelete
I like Poppy. Congrats!ReplyDelete
I like your suggestion, Pipi. I adored Pipi Longstocking books as a child. She was brave, independent and kind. Now I want a puppy named Pipi!ReplyDelete
I named my cat Annie after Anne Richards the x gov of Texas(last democrat). Named Dexter after a serial killer..But I think Abigail is a pretty name and call her Abby???ReplyDelete
I am so excited for you and Gregg! My sister just got a new dog and they named it Olive. At first I didn't like the name, but as I have gotten to know her (through photos and videos as my sister lives in Massachusetts), Olive is the name that fits her perfectly. She is a poodle/border collie mix.ReplyDelete
I think I like Gracie too. It's sweet name.ReplyDelete
Molly…I had a delightful Molly…Mitsy lived 17 years…pepper 13…all wonderfulReplyDelete
I taught school in S C five years…my first five as a new old teacher.ReplyDelete
I like Gracie, too. There’s also Martha [George and Martha Washington]. Whatever you decide, this is very exciting.ReplyDelete
