    Trust me, by the time your Newfie arrives, you are going to be a blubbering mess.

    wise words from a lot of people here, good thing to do when you are getting down to a couple of names, stand at you back door and try shouting them, if the neighbours fall down laughing or you cant do it....perhaps try another name....my sister originally called her staffy Ballsy, but it didn't work so he ended up called Rah!

    Yeh I found that you just get a name and it sticks. We had a blue whippet and she did have a name, although now I could not tell you what it was, but everytime I saw her I would think "Pixie" so I started calling her that and it stuck! lol

    Breeding, Showing, Training and general crazy making!!!
    If you seek understanding listen to the music, not the song.

    That is so true! If some of you will remeber, I wanted to call Inca Anastasia. I love the name, but trying to roll that off my tongue would have been the end of me.

    The reality of my Ferrero (my dream brown newfie) has been flung out the window for now and we will **fingers crossed** be getting a little black boy in September this year.

    I want to name him Jace, but my partner isn't too keen. He will want to call him something like Bundy (which isn't a bad name, but I don't think it's suitable for a newfie).

    I don't think my partner even knew what a newfie was until I came into his life , but now he seems to be into it more then I am...which I find hard to believe! I think he only accepted the name Ferrero because he knew how long I have wanted him for seeing as though I had a name picked out and all

    I think it's going to be quite difficult for us to come up with a name that we both like and that will suit our dog.
    *clapping hands*....another Newf baby...WOOHOO!!!

    And I couldn't yell "Hyacinth" across a footy oval. And "Mrs Bookay" didn't work either.

    Also an adjective type name like Frosty, Snowy, Boofy, Bluey, Rusty - is good because it is less likely to belong to any humans you know. Frosty gets called "Snowflake" a lot too. Fuzzy on why. Fuzzy - there's a name for a Newfie. I look at them and think "Fuzzy Wuzzy Bear" and then try not to think of the drinking game.

    What do we know about Newfoundland? It is a cold easterly bit of Canada. "Cookie" (Canookie) was their Montreal Olympics mascot. "Canookie" is kind of a Canadian nickname. Newfies / Newfoundlander people are to the Canadians what the Irish are to the English and what the Tasmanians are to the Mainland Ozzies. Ie butt of many jokes. They're also considered a bit slow and easy going - or as some of us city folk say (slowly) "a bit R u r a l". Though as my many country cousins have proved, slow is not the same as stupid. Newfies are also big on fishing. And they probably cop sheep jokes in the same way as NZ vs Oz make sheep jokes. Did you know that Kiwis tell the exact same sheep jokes about Aussies that we do about them. Population varies but we did have a lot more sheep here than they did and at one point more sheep per capita than they (NZ) does.

    Anyway - you will probably look at the first photos and a name will manifest magically.

    gypsie is gypsie because she was picked up skinny, beaten and wandering around the streets and also because she is very independant and not a smoochy dog..(like a gypsy)

    For Jesus H Christ - I'm fairly sure that's why "Jessie" is so popular for a dog's name. ie a variation of "Jay Cee".

    Balzac - while a fine writer - just sounds too much like "scrotum" if you have to yell it out loud. Not a good name for a dog, especially if you get him desexed as well. And then he could be MT Balzac.
