How about Bunny? She kind of looks like a bunny. She is very cute.

Good luck

She's the cutest little thing! I like the English name "Poppet".:)

Don't worry about changing her name. Just use it every time you call her for dinner or treats and she'll catch on!

What about Annabel? Daisy? Princess? Rosie? Kiki? Precious (my dog's name)? Abigail? Candy? Penelope or Penny?

For some reason, she looks like a Gisèle to me...:o

(BTW I don't particularly like Princess for a dog though.. ;) )

How about Phoebe? She`s even blonde like Phoebe on the TV show "Friends". Whatever you choose, it would probably be easier for her if the name sounds similar to Penny with an "e" sound at the end. Good luck!! :pawprint:

My husband loves to name all the dogs we get, I let him cause I usually like the names and they are unique, I like that, Our daughter is named Danie, not Danielle, just Danie (DANNY) , so anyway..... We have always had boys, first name was Paladin, he unfortunately passed away, now we have Titan and Loki, he names them after Gods and stuff like that. Since she is a girl, when we got our new puppy we were thinking of names for boys and girls, we wasn't sure which we were gonna get, The girl name I really liked was Guya, goddess of something, sorry I can't remember, I'm not as into all that stuff as he is, but there are other goddess if you don't like that name, like Athena. I just like names that are unique and that few or no other animals are named. Although Titan is pretty common in animals, but it was either that or Kronos, the kids picked Titan. Sorry to blab on, good luck on the naming.
