    Diesel - We named him that beacuse it was a strong name and we could growl it at him if he misbehaved.

    Gypsy - The RAAF named her that and I'm a bit funny with changin my pets names whe they already have names.

    I got Taya from a shelter - I quite liked the name so was glad I wouldn't have to change it!

    Keeda's name just felt right. I named her in the car after picking her up, as we were going home for the first time. I first thought of "Keeta", but saying "Keeta" quickly made it sound like "Keeda", so Keeda it is.

    Thanks Someone liked it on another forum as well and actually named their wolf hybrid Keeda after hearing it. I was very proud!

    My friend named "Frosty" for me. I started calling her "Mrs Bucket" because she had one of those Elizabethan collars on when I met her at the AWL. I also wanted to call her "Hyacinth" - but you can't yell that across an oval. Neither can you yell "Roany" which was the AWL name for her (Groany). I think "Pepper" might have been a good name too - based on her colouring. I also thought about pirate names but the only female one I knew was "Buttercup". I don't think "Blackbeard" was going to work somehow. I also thought about "Sparrow" after "Captain Jack Sparrow" a recent Pirate.

    My friend's criteria for naming pets was it has to be an Adjective and not a people name. So her dogs are Halley (after the comet, not the Berry) and Rosie. And her cleaning lady is Rosa - or is that the other way about, anyway I get very confused.

    Quite a few people have misheard "Frosty" as "Rusty" which seems a good name for a blue heeler too.

    Troopa - because my grandparents GSD from when I was little was named Major and I wanted to go with something along those lines. I also wanted a strong bold name so 'Troopa' just fits.
