Just joined the site and did an introduction post which you can read here! I adopted another Lab today, a male...he's 32lbs and 4.5 months old and I need help coming up with a name I like that falls into these requirements:

  • Must be Japanese
  • 2 Syllables, {3 if you can shorten it too 2 like Toshiko > Toshi!}
  • I'm partial to the letter K this time
  • Can be either a male or female name

Just curious, what's the Japanese connection for Lab names? :confused: Now if you had an Akita or Japanese Chin or any other Jap breed, I'd understand but for a Labrador? :confused:

I'm not picking on you or anything. Just wondering. :)

I just really tire of all the same names people use for their dogs, same as with humans...everyone always seem to name their dog or baby from the same 100-200 names or less.

Everywhere I go and the people who meet Toshiko; its exciting and unique cause most here in the US have never heard of her name and there is a story behind it as well as its own unique meaning too that all Asian names have.

I like people to go huh, when I tell them my dog's name...soon I'll be able too make them double-huh...hehe


On another forums my favorite submission thus far has been:

or Kuni for short!​

Forgot to add in this bit of info, but I did get him from the country yesterday at a small chicken/farm festival where some relative of mine live. I was invited with my current Lab there and these Lab pups were there and just too convincing to pass up since I wanted another anyway... The name fits well from where I got him!


oh and might as well add that it doesn't have to be a K only name, but I'm thinking I may want that the most. Whatever comes up that stands out the most and rolls off the tongue easily and quickly!

How about Kenji (mentioned above)? I know three Japanese gentlemen named Kenji.

Nah...sounds too much like Benji, and I and others would end up calling him Ken and thats a popular name I hear a lot!

Another name that was suggested elsewhere I like is Shuji...

I like Kenji. It's Japanese, and yet fits the lab "persona" well. :)

I like upbeat, happy sounding names for labs. Names that almost make you smile just by saying them. That type of name fits labs best.

Not Really Japanese, but get asked a lot if it is....

I have used the name Takaramei (Take Care of Me) a lot with my game play. Feel free to use it if you want.
