    DefaultKunae or Kounae?

    Since it appears I can't add a poll to my existing thread about deciding on a name for my new puppy I have to start a new one.


    Anyway, I think I've decided on Kunae or add an O and get Kounae. I really like the way both sound, they're easy & quick to say and quite unique! {but I think I like Kunae more} What do you all like more and why if you decide to post!?


    • Kunae is pronounced Kuu-nae
    • Kounae is pronounced Koh-nae



    Neither of these names show up any name list and I've checked dozens of them, but I really like the meaning behind Kuniko - "Child of the Country" which is a female name, and I've been unable to find a male name with the same or similar meaning. Thus whichever name I end up deciding on will get this meaning behind the name since neither exist out there!

    I think Kunae might sound too similar to your other dog's name, might get them confused?

    Toshiko and Kunae? Confused with someone else? Just curious but where do they sound similar...

    Personally, I don't care for either one - but that's my taste, not yours!

    To me they sound like Cooney - or Coney. Don't sound Japanese to me if that is what you were aiming for. I did like Kenji.

    How about Matsui (said the Yankee fan)?

    That they do if you put too much emphasis on the E, but rather the A! I like them, but I'm having a tough time finding {I guess 'better'} names that I'll like for long term.

    Nobody here or elsewhere has given me any suggestions I like yet...

    IMHO, I would choose neither one. That is just me.
