Nope. I have to meet the dog first before I can name them. Well... okay we've only actually named two of our current 5 dogs- Mia and Beau. The other three came with names that seemed to fit them well enough so we left them. I had a big long list of names for Mia picked out but they didn't fit her.

Mia CGC - (6 1/2 year old Papillon)
Summer TG3 TIAD - (11 year old Papillon)

I have lots of names for my future dogs but I don't know that I've actually used one yet. Murphy's name was a contest between Murphy and Finnegan. We had Mu for a couple days before we settled on a name for her (I don't remember what the other ones were). Matt desperately wanted to name Tipper "Fish" and got very sulky when I wouldn't let him (he is not the one that takes her to class and has to say her name in front of lots of other people!).

So I guess that's my rambling way of saying, no, not really. LOL.

Yes, lol. I was planning on a Rage, but her name was going to be "Katie's infinite Rage" but we decided instead to pay homage to her breeding instead. Daisy, Liz & Eerie had their names when we got them. Autumn I named off the bat because we got her at Autumn Oaks and she was orangey-brown. Swagger... well, I've always liked the name, but he was white and I wanted to name him cocaine Carl.... no one else agreed so I demanded it had to be Swagger then lol.

Rage's half-sister's name WAS "Young Money" but I think they've changed it so now I don't know what to name my dog ! She was going to be "Young Money Militia - 'Millie'". I do know for certain I'll have a "Little Miss M6" someday and call her Bimmer.

UKC GRCH 'PR' Hannas Creek Liz

And the "off-colored" hounds:

I love Quaid! (And also Dennis Quaid... LOL)

I had a list of names and narrowed it down to a few before we met Auggie. Auggie wasn't the way I was leaning until I met him.

I already have a name and a registered name picked out for my second dog, but I'm also open to the idea that the dog may not fit the name... I have back-up names, LOL.

Auggie - The Flash RN NAJ MXP MJP CGC
Payton - Sharp Dressed Man NA NAJ NF CGC
Dagger Baby - coming 2016

LostAndConfused - Love your sig. ^_^ I laughed when I read it. LOL

I have some names picked out, but I don't name the animal until I see them. And then most of the time the name's I've picked out don't fit. The one exception to that was with Sadie. As soon as I was told I was going to be getting a female black Lab pup to raise, the name Sadie just popped into my head (almost immediately) and that was what we called her from day one.

Oh my lord, I couldn't even finish reading the thread I was laughing so hard. That is hilarious!

Now that I've finished the thread, I will answer the original topic.

Yes, I pick out names before I bring them home. I always have back up names, but we've never had a name not fit.

I plan on naming my pick boy Darius. But it's not like it's set in stone. If he isnt a Darius, then he isnt a Darius.

I have lists of names I like on my computer, and even more on my iTouch... but the past two pets I've gotten none of the names on my list "fit" and I had to come up with afterwards lol

I love the name Quaid!
