Although the new pup will be my second dog, she is the first dog I have ever had to name. About five years before I got him, I decided with absolute certainty I would name my first dog Mr. Eko. There was never any debate. But now just a few weeks away from the big day I still haven’t found a name for my girl that fits.
She fits perfectly, now we just need a name that fits her the same way
Here are a few of the ideas we’ve had fun kicking around:
Funniest name: Mrs. Potato Head, or “Tot” for short.
Nostalgic name: Nala (from The Lion King) T
hematic name: Freckles (Eko’s name is from the show LOST – Freckles is the nickname of another character in the show)
She got into a heated battle with her shadow, so that got me thinking about names from Peter Pan like Wendy and Tiger Lily
She was also determined to cause trouble and go places she shouldn’t. That put me on track thinking about mythological/fictional trouble makers with names like Eris, Kuma and Lyra Silvertongue
Although she looked like a loaf of bread while sleeping, “Loaf” doesn’t exactly have the right ring to it…
No name has stuck yet, so I’m hoping inspiration will strike soon. Help me get those creative juices flowing and let me know how you came up with your pet’s name. Hopefully your stories will kickstart my brain. If you have any name suggestions or ideas about naming be sure to share those as well.
I need all the help I can get!
