    Sumo - well I thought it fit perfectly to a Staffy. I wanted something special and I have never met a dog named Sumo before...his nicknamke is boofhead

    Ruby - well...look at my girl's colour and you'll know. Her nick name is "Lille One"...Lille (pronounced Leella) means little in danish

    Previous dogs:

    Rex - he was rescued and we named him Rex...it means royalty
    Odin - Nordic Warrior God...he WAS a Rottweiler and I AM Danish...so perfect name

    Ziggy- we liked the sound of the same, it's easy to call out and can be formalised to Ziggy Stardust. We considered Cookie but I liked Ziggy better in the end.

    Our cats:
    Kingston- he was very 'regal' looking, very dignified so we couldn't call him Mr. Fluffypants or anything like that. Kingston stuck pretty quick.

    Heman- he walked into our house uninvited when he was maybe 4 weeks old- he was very skinny and small so it was hard to tell. He was so skinny, and tiny, but he was brave and adventurous. So we called him 'Heman' because it was ironic. Well he had the last laugh as he is now over 7 kgs and solid. (Our eldery neighbour thought he was a dog when she first saw him).

    We wanted something along a 'white' theme, for obvious reasons,LOL

    After much internet trawling we agreed on Jenna which is actually short for Genevieve which means 'White Spirit, White Wave'.

    I also love the name Spirit but that was already taken

    I was in a new relationship and not sure of anything, when O.H brought home a dog it was like a prophesy that all would be well, so we called him Amos.
    A few months later out walking a car pulled up ahead of us stopped long enough to toss out a little bundle, we picked up the little black puppy with a fractured shoulder, full of ring worm, fleas and barely 6 weeks old. In the 5 minutes it took us to walk home O.H and Amos were besotted with her, ( me too ). So we figured she's a goddess or angel so we named her after the greek goddess Chloe as we picked her up in a parkland.

    Did you mean Emma for not taking puppy to council pound before applying to adopt or the people who dumped the broken thing or both?

    You think if Council were serious about the must take strays to pound rule, that they wouldn't allow a puppy to be registered unless the new owner could produce a sales receipt or similar.

    If my new puppy is a boy, I have chosen Wolfgang for the simple reason that my husband did not agree to calling my youngest son that name.

    Charlie - because I've always loved the name. He also gets called Charlie Pug or Puggy.
    Bella (short for Isabella) - it was the only girl name my husband and I could agree on!! Plus, Bella means "beautiful", which she is!

    We also wanted to make sure their names sounded different to each other, so that's why we picked one name that ends in a "y" sound and one that ends in the "a" sound.

    Mishka - the name just popped into my head when we got her home. I found out later it means "Bear" in Russian & some other languages. She's a pretty tough old girl, so I suppose it fits.

    Zena - some girl Rob knew had this name. She (the dog) sure was a Princess (but no warrior)

    Scout - I saw him at the vets & when I brought Rob back later that night to see him, once we let him out of the cage, he was scouting madly around the waiting room floor. His name is only a pain when I say "Good Boy Scout". Doofus Lynnie

    Tara - Tossed around names in the car on the way home from the breeders. It had to be a short name for obedience training. Considering Tara is very much "Gone with the Wind" & running around to all the various classes as soon as I go to do any off lead work with her, pretty apt.

    Spirit - Saw Spirit being born via a video. Breeder had real trouble getting her breathing when she was born. When the wee thing finally got going, she was one of the most active in the litter & I said to Rob "Gee that pup has a lot of spirit". I found out later that it's common for people to name Whites with ghostly names. Spirit's Father is called Spook. Go figure .....
