Crowdsourcing a Dog Name

edited January 2015 in Help / Advice Forum
Heya, y'all. I'm adopting a dog this week, and I'm having a little trouble thinking of a good name.

She's a year old, and her current name is dumb as hell, so once I complete the process of adopting her from her rescue organization, I intend to rename her. (I look at dog names as being more for the human than the dog, just for the record.)

Facts:
  • She is a "chug" (half pug, half chihuahua)
  • I don't really care about "gender-appropriate" names
  • She takes after the chihuahua side, size-wise, and weighs less than 10lbs
  • I like both ironic names, and names that are fitting (e.g. "Titan", "Daisy", etc)
  • I sometimes enjoy long, silly names (possibly involving titles)

Current Name Ideas:
(Not all mine.)
  • Minerva
  • Colossus
  • Thanos (suggested by @Usagi‌)

Oh, and here is the obligatory picture:

    Miss Miraposa Da-gou, the Third.
    from my understanding this means "butterfly" in Spanish followed by "big dog" in Chinese.

    How's her temperament?

    Xanna the Pirate Princess. Pronounced Sanna. She will really be able to pull off those handkerchief bandana/sashes with that name.

    Alternatively: name her "french fries" because you cannot say it without smiling.

    Who would name a dog "dumb as hell"?

    This dog is clearly a ruby.

    That dog is obviously a Ragnarok. Maybe you could go with Apocalypse, but I think Norse words are cooler.

    Alternatively...Yun Fat. She's already got the Chow...

    She looks like an "Alice" to me.

    With a name like that, she'd have to be good.

    I just had another booze name idea ('cause I'm obsessed with my own brilliance, screw the rest of you and your good ideas):
    Prosecco.
    Still want a title? Countess Prosecco de Bellini
