dog names?

edited January 2007 in Help / Advice Forum
I've recently adopted a young male dog - lab crossed with a great dane of all things. He's a lovely shiny black and about a year old. Big boy with mostly dane features.

I've seen people here come up with loads of suggestions for various kittens, so I thought I'd have you try your hand on dog names.

Suggest away! (my preference leans towards short names ending with the "ee" sound, but I'm open)

    I had a great great dog named Sammy, Sam for short. That seems to fit your criteria. I have a lab now named Clove (or Clovey) and Brutus.... which I just call him Brute sometimes.

    Short and ends in an "ee" sound? Bitey. This was also the name of the possum in the episode of The Simpsons with the monorail.

    How about a long name with a short version?

    Like "Charlemagne Caesar the Celebrious Canine," or "Charlie" for short.

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.

    the "no true scotch man" fallacy.

    Sorry, I should have listed the names that are out (due to previous dogs)

    So no charlie, sammy or skippers.

    (I like the sound of boomer. that's going on the list for sure)

    What impression does the dog give you when you see him? Perhaps something that fits his personality, although its hard when they're still pups.

    He's the quiet, gentle giant type of dog. Non threatening. Lean on each other while watching tv. A good, steady friend. I've been playing with the idea of calling him Duffy, too.

    Name him Maximus, Max for short.

    All the name with the 'ee' sound on the end I think up are more female names.

    Some fun ideas based on other large male dogs I have known:

    Casey Junior
    Rocky
    Bailey
    Wrigley
    Scooter
    Digsby
    Bogey

    My own dog (a female) is named Beasley, but people think she's a boy half the time when they hear that name too.

    Personally I tend to draw names from random books I have at hand with unusual words in them.

    I used to have a snake named Maedar, after the male medusa in Dungeons and Dragons.

    I'm a huge proponent of the names of the Gods. I finally convinced a friend of mine to name his St. Bernard either Apollo or Zeus, it ended up being Apollo. Great names in that realm however.

    I tend to treat my dogs like another human member of my family, so I usually name them human names. My dog names to date include:
    Leonard
    Abigail
    Annie
    Amy
    Becky
    Andrew

    and I have a cat named Norman.

    Also, though, I always loved the name of Rob Dyrdek's dog, Meaty. Upon seeing Meaty and asking what he would name it, Rob replied "Well, lets tell it like it is. He's a little bag of meat so lets name him meatbag. Meaty for short." That was, of course, for a cute little bull dog.

    A name should fit their personality. A fun dog should have a fun name for example.
