Puppy names

hey everyone.  I am getting a new puppy this weekend.  Of course I am waiting to meet him before giving him a name.  I was just looking for some ideas...  A male springer spaniel pup..  Liver and white..  :) TIA



Re: Puppy names

  • I love spaniel pups! Where did you find him?

    We like themes for our names. Our cocker is named Maximus (from Gladiator) and our GSP is Artemis (call name Trixie), so we stuck to ancient Greek/Roman names.

    I think meeting the dog first is a great idea - it can make the name choice very easy based on their personality.  Our pugs have both been named for peanut butter brands (Teddie and Skippy).  We named Teddie once we had seen a photo of him (we were open to changing it once we met him, but it fit perfectly).  Skippy came with his name (we rescued him as an adult) - we knew he was meant for us!

  • My DH and I have leaned toward human names inadvertently!

    Our cat is Sam (he came with that name when we adopted him) and our dog is Ben, as in Big Ben :)

    When you first see him a name might just pop into your head. I had a black and white spring spaniel growing up, his name was Charlie.

  • Cute names girls.. :)  I will see.  I am so excited.  Going to pick him up  this weekend. I feel like a lil kid so excited...  lol 


  • Congrats on your new addition! Please share pictures when you get her!

    Congrats! My husband prefers human names so our dog is named Vince "Lombadri" (we're pretty big Green Bay Packers fans) , I on the other hand probably would have named him Lambeau because I like it to be more unique. 

    I grew up though, with pets who were all named after Peanuts characters. We had a Linus, Sally, Charlie, and Lucy. 

    Best bet is to meet him and decided from there :) It took my husband and I the entire 3 hour drive to pick up our dog to decide lol

  • Find a name that has a strong pronunciation so its easy for the pup :)
