    We have something in common! I give all my pets quirky old fashioned names too. Walt the cat, My next dog (if a girl) I am naming either Lady, Bernadette, or Henrietta. Boy will be Clark, Montgomery or Tyrone (old Irish name)

    Montgomery is my favourite too! And believe it or not, it was a silky puppy we were considering. Maybe they can be doggy friends? Look at me, planning playdates for a non existent pup. They took my foster pup away

    silk puppy - why does that make me think of the Scarlet Pimpernel? Especially the black and white film version. I think his name was Percival (Percy).

    I'm looking for rarely used names for an Elevator at the moment. Apparently depsite being brand new - in a very old 3 story terrace house, it is quite a character and needs a name. I'm thinking Eleanor the Elevator? Or Edwina? or Elvira (remember the gothic late night movie MC) or Egbert, Edmund (though the Narnia movie might make that name popular again).

    Lloyd would go nicely with "George". "Lloyd George" was an English PM. Hmm, know a few dogs called "Winston" after Churchill.

    (Lord) Nelson's first name was Horatio, a bit like a Ioan Gruffudd character Horatio Hornblower. Ioan does romantic hero so well, he's completely wasted at Disney studios. I've got no idea how you pronounce "Ioan" though. Might be difficult to yell across an oval. So is "Horatio" I suppose. I always wanted to call my nephew "Harry". In fact I still sometimes do. And "Henry" yells really well. "Roll with me HENREEEE".

    I've got ancient ancestors with names like Gemima, Frederica, Roberta, Claude, Norman. And I know a tribe of Labardors named after Vacuum cleaners. Wasn't Edgar? Hoover a USA president. There's two more fun names.

    But I think I said before, my friend's method for naming dogs that she has failed to follow for her own, is to use an adjective - to avoid confusion with human names.

    Ioan is Ewan, like Ewan McGregor. Grufford is Griffith. Welsh names are hard.

    What's happened to zen? I'd love to hear how Nelson is shaping up and settling in.
