Here is one for the Monday morning water cooler. Picking up a choc. lab puppy next week. He is very spunky, with a great attitude. Knows how to be playful, yet knows when to knock it off. Was looking for some cool, different names. Be interested to hear your thoughts.

Thanks

The nicest dog I ever knew was a lurcher called 'Pete'.

I also knew someone once who had 2 dogs called 'This' and 'That'. You need 2 to make it work though, and you might feel daft shouting their names in the park.

Shame 'Monster' is already taken :)

My family pets were named after food.
We had a German Shorthair Pointer named Chocolate. Her middle name was Bar. I was five, and very proud of myself for coming up with that.
We also had Biscuit, Crumpet, Muffin, Kuchen (german for cake), and the cats: Cupcake, Snickerdoodle (Snick), Macaroon (Roon), Gingersnap (Kitten), and... Cellar, because he lived in the cellar (feral).
The horse was called Sugar but that was already her name when we got her.

This is mostly because my dad objected to giving animals Christian names, though. My mother agreed because she'd once had a boyfriend who kept talking about his wonderful dog but would never say the dog's name. Finally Mom asked. The boyfriend somewhat shamefacedly admitted that the dog's name was the same as Mom's, and understandably that made things a little awkward...

Though there's something fun to be said for finding a very elaborate and obscure human name for a thoroughly undignified dog. "Euphegenia! Stop drinking from the toilet!" "Fetch, Zebulon!"

I'd call a dog Fetch.

Then you can throw a stick and yell: "Here, Fetch".

Or possibly the all-time favorite for a dog name: Walkies.

Reboot

I have a black lab named General Beauregard; Beau or Beauregard for short.

Cocoa or Koko is a nice name for a chocolate dog.

I have a mate who called his dog Askem. Quite funny when people ask what the mutts name is.

My Mastiffs are Sargon and Ramses, the Boxers are Hook and Jab, the Australian Shepherds are Flotsam and Jetsam, the Feist is named Scooter and Maggie came with a name. I never name a dog until after I've owned it for a week or so. The Cockatoo was named Gandalf because I'd wake up every morning to find an empty cage, locked of course, while the bird was sitting in the east windowsill, preening.

I had a Lab named Rounder, (ran circles around the yard when he was a pup) and a Beagle named Greenpeace. (he wouldn't run a rabbit). The black cat with white mittens and a white collar is named Chopin and one of the barn cats is named Freddy, as in Krueger. Not sure why Freddy has a name as no one in their right mind would ever call him.

My first Mastiff was named Hitchcock. If there was something dead within a 10-mile radius Hitchcock would find it, roll around in it and drag the carcass back to place it by the front door.

I don't name pets, I let the pets choose their own name. ;)

Thanks, I should have listed the ones I like too:

Rexi "Bones"
Casper
Nips

Good advice on waiting for the dog to "name" himself.

O.D.
(Other Dog. It took forever to convince the vet's office to stop writing it and daying it as Odie)

In my youth a friends pup was D O G and the kitten was, of course, C A T. Yeah, it looks a tad odd in print, but the names sound almost lyrical when you say the letters at a semi-brisk clip.

Chocolate lab?

Tobler or Toby, short for Toblerone (that prism-shaped Swiss chocolate).

>>no nickname.

We did have a dog with absolutely no personality, so we named him "Alan Thicke"...
