How cute! I suggest "Diva" since that's what she'll probably end up being!:p

awwww way to cute and on the furniture already! :D lucky girl

I like people names for pets to me she looks like a Abby, Molly or perhaps Emily but regardless of thew name she sure is a cutie. Have fun spoiling her.

I thinks she needs a girly name like Freida, or Lizzie, Jenny or Saffie.

What an absolute doll!
Hmm names I like don't seem to fit with her, but I'll try anyways: Lexie, Sophie, Seven (wait no, you can't use that, I'm naming my first daughter that :D ) Chloe
hmm that's all for now.

Stormy is a girly name... I knew a girl horse named Storm.

I am not one for naming pets popular human names. I know, I know, Willow is technically a human name.... but, how many Willow's do you know?

There is probably a human out there somewhere named Stormy. I guess Storm would be a boys name.

How about Koya, I had a golden retreiver growing up named Koya. There is actually some meaning to the name to. Here is what I came up with on my MSN.

Hi, thanks for all the suggestions, keep them coming! If we don't name her soon, her name might stay 'puppy', lol

Our first night went rather smoothly. She slept in our master bedroom, in her little box (will go shopping for her later in the week), with her chewy toys. She woke me up at 4am for a piddle outside, and then we went back to bed. This morning up bright and early at 7am, outside again (gees, I better get used to going outside in the cold quickly!). She loves outdoors. I think she is house trained already, as she tells me (yes she can talk), when she wants to go outside (which is always!).

Her favourite spot in the garden so far is my herb garden (great!) She rolls around in my origanum, dashes through the lavender and rosemary, plays with the cherry tomatoes and chews on my peonies. I know, here are major clues for a name, but I'm not sure if they suit her.

You should have seen her liitle puzzled face when I put the tv on for the kids. Never seen a tv before! Too cute.

I'll try to post a better pic of her.

I like Shyloe it seems fitting for her. Good luck. I have heard of people calling there dog puppy!!

She's a cutie Patootie! She looks like an Arabella to me so you can shorten to Bella or Ara... dunno, that's what came to mind when looking at her. :o

The first thing that came to my mind was Storm too. Or something storm/cloud/wind related, she has the nicest colouring! What is her personality like?

rivers
October 16th, 2005, 12:51 PM
What's black with brown feet and ears, and white patch on chest?
My puppy without a name!!!!!! :sad:

I have come up with the following, but they have been vetoed by my boys!

Cocoa
Crema - The pale brown foam covering the surface of a well-brewed espresso (I mean, really, how perfect!! Just sounds too harsh when said)
Clover
Rosemary
Bruschetta - no reason, just sounds nice
Holly

What else is black, brown and white? Her personality is quite, curious and playful.

She is sooo cute and I bet she does become a diva! I like Stormy but it seems a little undignified for a diva in training, lol

It's hard to come up with a name on a moment's notice but she looks like a Princess (tho that is so common!) or Precious or maybe GiGi. Siamese Rescue recently named 3 newborn kittens after 3 divas - Celine, Modonna and Mariah (They were songing at the top of their tiny lungs and hence the name) but she does not look like any of them and I am not sure I'd WANT to be named after any of them, lol You could call her Diva and DeeDee for short or maybe Danielle, Dani for short. (Can you tell I like 2 syllabelle words, lol) Or Anica or Annique or Angelique b/c she is your Angel!

If she likes the herb garden how about Basil?


What else is black, brown and white?
A nun rolling down a muddy hill!

Puppyluv
October 16th, 2005, 02:53 PM
What about:
Chicco (it's Italian for bean, as in coffee bean)
pepper
Anise (as in the licorice-ey spice)
Noce (Italian for nut)
lol I'm a big fan of the foreign names, that way you can get a meaning/image without using a daily word.

She is adorable.... First thing I thought when I saw her pics... was Lola! She is precious and I hope you find a name for her soon....
Lola
Emma
Molly
Lucca
Naven

Good luck, have fun...

What a sweet puppy, congrats. My favorite female doggy names are Maggie, Ariel (little Mermaid) and Mistie.

A nun rolling down a muddy hill! Too funny! I had a good laugh over that one! you :clown: ! a nun in Italian is Monaca...nah. Thanks for the laugh.

A good way to look for names is by going to http://www.etymonline.com/ and typing in a word that suits your pup and see what pops up. ie for nun "Nuncheon" popped up. Nuncheon the munchkin! :p Or you could type in puppy, cute, curious, or whatever! Good luck, name picking can be hard!

Here are a small sampling from the 'animal names' document on my computer. I used to raise 4-H animals and always needed names :)

It has the name and then the meaning.

Ebony black

Ibby Dark colored

Li (LEE) Black

Licorice Black

Lisha (LEE-sha) Black; Darkness

Allee admirable and good; like the white earth

Aneas Praised One

Asil Well born, gentle, high-spirited, thoroughbred

Chika (TSHEE-kah) a thousand rejoicings

Dea (DAY-ah) a goddess

Eclat (ay-KLA) brilliant; splendid one

Elsa noble one

Avalanche strong or swift as an avalanche

Avis like a bird; bird of paradise

Binga glorious one; one who takes up room; one who rolls or wraps herself up

Blitzi like lightning

Chiquita (tshi-KEE-tah) little one

Alli dog

Aslan Lion

Chilver (Tshil-ver) lamb

Comet long-haired


For your pup, I especially like Ibby, Chika, Dea, Elsa, Chiquita, Chilver, and Comet.

Thanks everyone for all the suggestions. I have tried a few on her, but she knows her name, I just have to figure it out!

Kayla - that is a very interesting site! I am sure I will find a name there, and learn a wealth of other stuff at the same time!

Yesterday we tried a few names on her, called her each name for a while to see if it sinks in. But this morning, the names don't seem right again!
We tried Clover, Sable, Ruby, Cocoa, Pepper(corn) and Rosemary.

Poor pup! When we call her 'come puppy', she looks at us expectantly waiitng for us to say her name. Her expressoin says 'don't you know my name yet?'

She is soooo good. No accidents in the house yet. She tells me when she needs to go out, and then afterwards looks at me with those little eyes as if to say 'I did it, I'm so happy'. Then she runs around like crazy-dog (in my herb garden).

Last night she slept through, no mid-morning piddle session. 7am, up again bright and early and play time.

Awwww. I love puppy antics :love:

Like Puppyluv suggested I like the name Pepper

I also like Dora (OK I have been hanging out with my 4 year neice too much)

rivers
October 17th, 2005, 11:35 AM
I think we have it (maybe). :fingerscr Ebony. My youngest son has accepted the name and is calling her Ebony already.

I know there is someone on here that has a dog called Ebony, hope you don't mind if I name her this beautiful name too!

Thanks Beetlecat for mentioning it.

Now lets hope the rest of the family agrees on the name when they get home. Hubby and son can be quite critical! I am exhausted from searching the net, and looking at everything for a name!

Thanks you all, this is a great forum. :thumbs up

She looks like a "Jazz" to me, or "Jazzy" short for Jasmine. :)

Congrats rivers.
The first name that came into my head when I saw her was Delaney. Don't know where that one came from.
So mine are:
Delaney
Haley
Katrina (for the biggest storm to hit N. America in decades)
Muffin (I don't know why but she seems like a muffin)
Lexy

I like it very pretty.................of course now you will have to get a second one and call her Ivory.........Ebony and Ivory living together in perfect harmony....... :D

She looks like a River to me... :D I'm a human name person, and she's a little girl, so mine would be Emily, Jenny, Emma... Of course, if you like Emily and your boy likes Ebony, you could do both... :D

Wait a minute, Jenny+Emma=Jemma??? I have always been intrigued by your doggie's name, Prin, so different. I always thought if I have kids that I would name a girl Jenna, but she just might be a Jemma instead...more unique. Have you known anyone by that name, or was that your creation?

I think she looks like a Madison...Maddy for short. But in the end, you go with whatever sticks, right? So you might just have an Ebony, which is a nice name.

How about Buttons....or maybe Jasmine, or Tara or Tweek? I love miniature schnauzers. Zachary was 6 years old when he arrived at my place, so I've never had a 'puppy' schnauzer.
Have fun!

I like Diva and Storm both. I heard a fellow with his dog who's name was Chaos. I thought that was cute. Describes a few dogs I know. I also like Noce - maybe next time...
