Boy Dog Names

I usually find a lot of girl dog names that I like. I still love the name Lucy, and gave that name to my collie girl. She’s the only dog we have that I named. The rest came named. And I’m not very creative when it comes to names. So I just usually leave them as is.

But now I’m thinking of names that I like. For boys. I’d really like another boy collie sometime. And another girl collie, too. But only after some of these guys die off. Which will devastate me, for sure. I don’t want any of them to go.

So boy names I’ve been thinking about:

Quinn (I like this name.)
Ianto (pronounced Yanto, from Torchwood. Cool name.)
Ian (I’ve always loved this name)
Tristan (This would be good for agility I could yell ‘TRIS!’ really loud.
Puck ( what a cute name this would be! Short and sweet for agility too).

Anyone have any good suggestions? What is your dogs name? I really like theme names, like all your dogs named off Star Trek characters, or spices… but I never seem able to keep that going, or decide on a good theme.

  1. With the dogs we’ve had, we waited a few days to get to know their personalities before naming them. We had a dashchund once who loved to sniff around pebbles so we named her Pebbles 🙂

  3. I liked the name Lucy too and chose it for one of my current dogs… it fit into the Peanuts theme that seemed to be emerging (childhood dog named Snoopy though she wasn’t a beagle, then a cat named Charlie).

    When I got my other current dog I considered (very briefly!!) naming him Linus to keep with the theme but that was just not gonna happen. What, “Liney” as a nickname? Uh, no. Instead I chose Walter, which made my short list because it didn’t rhyme with “no” and didn’t end in the oh-so-common “eee” sound. I love the name but not long after choosing it someone told me about the children’s story “Walter the Farting Dog”… D’oh! 🙂
