Default Names?

So... We MAY end up keeping one of the boys... MAY. Not sure which one, and while I would like to wait until I see their personalities before naming the one I will keep (the other one can be named by the owner - they will just have my kennel name), I just have too many options and need them narrowed down a bit

All of these are Finnish names/words with their English meanings. It's just the way I want to name my dogs. Their registered names will be Loistava's _______, the blank being one of the following Finnish names, which will also be their call name. I tried to not pick ones that might be too difficult to pronounce/spell out.

Koru - Jewel
Kallis - Expensive
Kulta - Gold
Valikoiva - Selective
Vaativa - Demanding
Ritari - Knight
Rikas - Rich
Toivo - Hope
Ensio - First
Into (the I is a long E sound) - Enthusiasm/Zeal

And obviously if anyone has any other Finnish ideas, I would love to hear them!

Note: This is NOT DEFINITE. But after all we've been through and the fact that I don't want to breed again for a good, LONG while, it sort of makes sense. Enablers are SORT OF welcome

Fun fact - I got the idea for "knight" from watching Sailor Moon (Moonlight Knight), as I needed some silly anime to watch while all this drama was unfolding

Anime and silliness are good stress relievers

I really like Rikas and Toivo.

Some random suggestions. Maybe it'll spark something in your mind that clicks for him.

Rakas = Beloved

Helmi = pearl

Topaasi = topaz

Juma = literally "the heavenly". In Finnish mythology he was the god of thunder and lightning.

Pekko = Finnish god of corn and barley and beer.

I really like Into, personally Kallis is a close second. I love Finnish names, so your pups are right up my alley!

"Into" would fit in well with your others' names, I think.
I also like Toivo.
