What's in a name??? Need help.

Hi all. New to the boards. I've recently welcomed a 13 week old, female, black and tan Doberman rescue into our home and am having a really hard time deciding on a name. I've never had this much difficulty in the past and would love some input/suggestions to help us along. We are now on day 4 without one, so it's pretty important we get this figured out.

I have a 3.5 year old, female GSD by the name of Kenya. Our last German Shepherd was Kiera.

Lexus and Nova are names of current female family dogs, so are hence ruled out.

I'm not big on "fluffy" names and need a name with some presence.

Some names we've looked at so far -


For training purposes I like names with one or two syllables.

Please offer your input or suggestions.

I like Cairo....you could even change it to Kairo to keep with the "k" theme of your dogs' names! Those hard sounds make training easier, I've heard!
