Default What do you wish you'd named your dog? What did you almost choose?

Or, what were some names you considered but then decided they didn't fit? I love name stories!

I had a decent list of names before I got Rowan, and I was pretty set on using Ozzy. Then I met him, and once I knew he was for me, I realized that he just... isn't an Ozzy. I still like the name a lot, but I'm also kind of glad I didn't use it since it's common(ish) and I like weird names "Rowan" wasn't even on my list but I found it while searching for the perfect name and, well, it was perfect. It means "little redhead." I found the list on my old Livejournal and I guess I was also considering Bo, Kavick, Toki, Archon, Boslo and Sawyer (before finding him.) One of his nicknames is "Bo Dog" for whatever reason so I guess that one stuck!

I was reaaaaally tempted to name Riff "Hobbes". I think it would've fit him pretty well, but I don't regret choosing Riff, which fits him like a glove He's a troublemaking hooligan, like the character he's named after. I didn't really have a list of potential boy names because I had been looking for a female, and none of the ones I liked for girls were really unisex. He has long white whiskers so I think Catfish would've been a great goofy name for him, too. I joke that I should've named him Skippy because he's such an upbeat goober, it would've fit too.

Did you go through various names before settling on one? Are there any names you wished you'd used instead of the one you did?
