    DefaultHelp us name our new puppy!!

    We have a 4 1/2 yr old yellow lab named Ozzy. The profile picture is me and him at Thanksgiving. My daddy is getting me and my sister another yellow lab puppy for Christmas. After 2 months of talking about names we have it narrowed down to four. Each one of us has a favorite and the fourth we agree we all like. None are in order! Who would be better to ask other than a bunch of lab lovers? The names are below.....please help us decide which to name him! He is a boy. And after all of the votes we will tally them tonight and which ever wins will be his new name. The link below is a picture of the new puppy when he was 2 weeks old. Thank you!!

    1.Stanley
    2.Brady
    3.Jay-Jay ( J.J.)
    4.Jesse

    Why not wait until you get the pup and let his personality guide you to his name?

    I like Brady...but when you finally meet him he may not feel like a Brady. You may even come up with a completely different name when you see his personality. Good luck with the new pup and keep us posted with pics and his new name

    This. I was going to name Raven something completely different. I had been wanting to name a dog this name for years. Tried it on her over a weekend and she just didn't fit the name. Ended up calling her Raven instead, which totally fits her (plus it's the clan name of a Nisga'a friend of mine).

    Personaly, I think your best bet is to go with the one you all like. Of the ones you posted, I like Brady and Jesse.

    Thanks everyone... you re-inforced my opinion!! My daughter is so funny, she thinks we have to decide NOW! I have said all along we should wait.....we named Ozzy during our 2 hour drive home from picking him up at the breeder. We were thinking Otis or Ollie...then out of nowhere...OZZY! We all like the 4 names above...my favorite is Jesse. My 2nd favorite is Jackson (Jaxx), but that one got shot down by both my dughters. Bottom Line: He's MY dog and I'm the parent...I will decide!! We enjoy seeing the pics of everyone's Labs. They are all beautiful!! Raven w/ the antlers....it doesnt get any cuter than that!!
    If my Lab doesn't like you......I'm sure I wouldn't either!

    Nothing wrong with picking out your favorite names ahead of time but you may change your mind when you see your puppy.

    Thank you though Raven is still humiliated.

    You'll know the right name for the pup when you get the pup.

    I agree with this. Be open to what comes after spending some timewith your pup in your enviroment. We named Harvey before picking him up, in hindsight we should have called him Duffus :-)

    FWIW - i like Jaxx

    Oh, and please post pics, i really need a puppy fix!!

    Congrats on your new puppy.

    It took us weeks to name Angus. He had several other names, including "Coop" and "Dude" before we settled on Angus.

    This forum named Simon. I put up four names, like you just did, and they chose (they actually chose my favorite, so that helped!).
