The more different dog names I see on here, the more I wonder where the names came from/what the story is behind the name. So - how did you come up with your dog's name?
I'll start. Champ is actually named after my husband's grandfather - it was his military call-sign, and was a nickname that stuck throughout his life. It also sounds very much like our last name (which is I suppose where the nickname came from to begin with...)
DH had two other labs a long time ago (from the same breeder that Clarence is from). They were named Annabel and Barkley. A, B, and now Clarence is "C"! Our Wheaten, Dudley, was the "D" and so now we're trying to come up with an "E" name for the next one in the spring. I wonder if we'll ever get through the whole alphabet?
We kicked around names for a couple weeks waiting. I wanted one I could make heard in the field and was easy to say, Rita finally asked about Rowdy, for the Clint Eastwood charector in Rawhide. And it fits him good also. ;D
Emma- Just seemed to suit her at the time.
Aidan- My son looked up Irish/Celtic names and came up with it..and it really is perfect for him.
Ruby- Labby-her breeder- named her for the color ribbon she put on her at birth.
Mambo is named after the dance and he cologne. He wiggles anytime he come around us, looks like he is dancing. I also loved the smell of his puppy breath and wanted to name him my fav cologne Jerome wears.
Lucy is named after a very sweet little girl we met at a party right before we got Lucy.
She was a daughter of a coworker of SU. She was full of personality and we thought the name was perfect for our Lucy.
We had other names in mind but Lucy was what suited her.
Sherman, was named because he was built like a 'Sherman Tank"...
Bosley, came to us as "Bosco" but he seemed not to like that name....I just thought he looked like a "Bosley". I called him that, and he came to me and smiled !! He likes it !
Charlie Brown, I wanted a brown dog I could call Charlie Brown, after the Peanuts character.
Ginger, was a sort of snutey, snippy little gal when she came to us..... "Gingersnap" came into my mind, and we called her Ginger.
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
