Default Do you have your future dogs named?

Am I crazy? Answer honestly (but gently.)

I always have a girl and boy name on reserve in case you know a dog falls out of the sky and lands in my lap or something.

Right now I have Issey for a boy and Vera for a girl.

So if your equally as crazy, share your names.

I have a mental bank of names I like. But I have to meet the dog (or horse) before I can name it. The name has to fit.

I will post the names when they come to me.. I really should write them down.

Nope. I like to get to know them a bit before naming them and it often takes me a few months to settle on a name.

I did however have a name already for a black tri I was hoping for out of Morgan -- before she was ruled out for breeding. I had both a call name and a registered name decided on. I don't know if I'll use that name for a future dog or not. It would have to be a very special dog.

yeah... the next girl name on the list was Dior and it just didnt stick, so I ended up changing it to Chloe after having her for a few weeks... so the reserve names dont always work

But I love Issey and def. think my little male Biewer is going to have that name... someday

My female kelpie will be Wanda, my male will be Matty.
My female BC will be Quincy, male will be Sonny.

And ofcourse it might all go out hte windown if they're personality doesn't fit. Buster took weks to name, he had Pumpkin, Frog, Spike and Juniour before Buster.

I want my future Newfoundland to be named Ruxpin. Like Teddy Ruxpin. Because Newfs look like teddy bears.
If I were to get an Aussie I'd be very unoriginal and name her Sydney. And even though I prefer females to males, I feel like I need a Boxer named Cassius.

I also like the name Rufus but again, I prefer females.

Not really. Every once in awhile I hear something I think would be an awesome name for a dog. But Caleb's name was picked out way before we got him- my husband came across it in his family tree and liked it. Since we are done having kids, we decided our "next" dog would be named Caleb.

It was five years from when I fell in love with boxers until I got one of my own. For those five years, I just knew I was going to have a male boxer and his name would be Finn. When I picked up Murphy from animal control I was at a loss. I knew that he was not a Finn, it didn't fit him at all. My husband actually came up with Murphy. It's the perfect name for him. I still keep the name Finn in the back of my mind to possibly use for a future dog.

If I get a male toller, it will be named Peter.

If I get a female dog, of any breed, it will probably be named Isla.

Other possibilities will be Danny, Sophie, Todd, and Kharma.
