Desperate need of help from creative minds!

I have a very serious problem and I am reaching out for help. We just got an amazing new puppy 5 days ago and we need a name!!!! He is the cutest thing ever and knows it. Due to the fact that we have had so many animals over the years our name list is running dry and this little guy needs a very special name.

He is a Blue Merle Pomeranian. We couldn't resist.

Doug says he'll just have to wait for his Berner when one of our older pack members moves on.

Our used name list is a full page with 3 columns!

Right now he is Bam Bam. Don't know why.

He was born on a lunar eclipse. He looks like an Ewok. He acts like a Gremlin. He's a powder puff of hair. He will top out at 7-8 lbs and is currently like a fuzzy guinea pig. Everyone who meets him drops their jaw in amazement, and I keep saying 'it's just insane how cute he is'.

We love western or natural names - spirit, river, bridger, carson, etc. But he is a conundrum.

Actually Doug thought of Storm, and I thought of Cloud.

I am just not convinced it is unique enough. He is one in a million. Jeez, can you tell I am a tad over the top with this puppy?

What a cute baby. Where did you get him? I like to use people names,, like Tommy, or Pete. But I honestly think given time he'll point you to the right name for this little sweety

I thought of two more after I posted before:

Sterling

Jester

LOL, I can't wait to hear what you choose. Hey, and if Bam Bam works, keep it!

I get Tumnis, but did the others come from 'chronicles' too?

Would steal 'Nermil' from you, but still not sure. Its great for a Chin. At one point Doug wanted to name our son Nermil or Freeway! I vetoed those choices.

I do like Willow - is it strong enough? I swear if this little twerp were a Rottie pup I would be concerned. He is incredibly tenatious in his attitude.

Oh and Doug did try for 'ED', but it didn't charm me.

Already used Sterling on a Silver Persian - great name!

First thing I thought of when I saw the first picture is Bossman. He sure looks the part.
He is too cute for words.

Thanks LavenderRott - I feel like a total idiot when I get so giddy about him. You should have seen me when we picked him up at the airport - I didn't know if I should scream or cry - I had never seen such a creature in my life. I feel so guilty for having had issue with the clients who are totally gushing over their little toy dogs. I have lifted more than one eyebrow at their fawning. Now I am doing it! I finally had to slap myself and remember he is a dog and needs the same treatment, rules and boundaires as the rest. No more sleeping under the covers, its the top sheet for him. No more hand feeding - its a bowl from now on. No more giggling as he grabs my daughters pant leg, shakes it and trills in a high pitched fever - its a firm 'leave it'. Poor Doug was thinking we would have to quit the training business as I was breaking every rule we have ever set. :sad: But I have gotten a grip and am ready to impress everyone with his brains not his beauty.

OMG.....he is absolutely adorable. I've never seen a blue merle pom before.

I'm not much good at names at the moment but of all the ones mentioned so far I like Matrix.

If you look up Ewok names - there is a site which shows the pictures of the Ewoks and their names. There is a blue merle Ewok - I swear!

Okay, so I am going to have to show you some of his competition. They are all amazing. I can't really have you thinking he is the only one....
