Help picking a name

I need help with a dog name. I haven't decided yet if I'll give my dog a new name, but everyone I know keeps saying I should so I better start picking since it took me months to give Beckham his name. The following are a few I like, but I'm really open to suggestions b/c I have no clue!

Grace/Gracie - Love this name and love the meaning

Kenya - Love the sound of it

Chelsea - I'm not totally into this name, but it was the name of a German Shepherd friend I had as a kid, the best dog I'll ever have the pleasure of knowing

Petra - I really love this name, like enough to give a future child this name (so maybe I shouldn't use it)

Rhian - Love the sound of it (I say it ree-AAAN)

Fern - I dunno, it just sound cute!

Lia/Leah - Love this name


Any you like? Any you hate? Suggestions please! (1-2 syllables is best)

I think Mia is the best name ever

but really...i had trouble too, but i didn't really know what would be a good name for my dog until i got him. so i wrote a few names down on slips of paper, and i put treats on them. then i set him free and he walked over to his future name.

for our last dog/family member we had Grace in mind but then my brother thought of Tara - not the NA version, but Tar (as in asphalt) ah (as in say ah) as opposed to terra. We went with Tara as that pronounciation is also the name of the ancient hill in Ireland where Kings sat

I am very partial to Grace though.


she was a beautiful GS also

so smart

I'm partial to Mia, too.

I like Kenya or Gracie, Lies. Both are very pretty.

greta and hilda are fun german names

and coming from someone who named her dog after alcohol, this might be a fun place to start: http://www.germanbeerguide.co.uk/

I had a Doberman named Erika (it has three syllables though, but mostly I called her "eeka" which took it to two syllables) and that really fit her.

I remember one woman was mad at me for naming my dog Erika because it was her daughter's name. I said "how old is your daughter?" Turns out she was younger than my dog so I said "Hey, I got first dibs then!" She didn't like that response at all -- of course, she didn't really like me much either. I never quite figured out what the problem was though -- we only worked together for a few months (if that), we weren't friends, and I was never going to meet her damned daughter. Go figure.

I like Gracie............my brother named his labs after his favourite movies the Aliens trilogy.....so he has "Bishop" and "Ripley"

I've named our animals after past rulers! It gets everyone confused because now we have "Candy" but Candy is named after Candace of Ethiopia...apparently she scared the BeJesus out of Alexander the Great!

When i get a boy dog....... I'm going to call him "NERO"

I think Gracie is a great name. my sister and her husband have a big dog too, and they named her Sasha. One of those things I wish I had thought of that name first! I'm years from having a dog, but still.

I think those are my favorites too, mainly Gracie. It's easy to say, easy for the dog to hear, and doesn't sound close to any of her commands. I like Kenya, besides the fact that it's a cool country in Africa, because it's a pretty cool sounding word, also easy to say/hear and distinct.

I wanted a German name, but I'm saving Ansel and Greta (or Hansel and Gretl) for when I have a pair.
