I've done it both ways....Lyric, I decided ahead of time when I was planning on my Doberman...not way ahead, but when I knew it would be soon. With the Chi's, I didn't think of a name until I brought them home.

Nope, it's best to know the personality first to me.

I have a list, but there's no guarantee that any of the names will be a good match for the dog. I certainly didn't have the name "Steve" picked out in advance I had been thinking about naming him "Tag" but it just didn't fit him. He just... looked like a Steve.

I had Psyche picked out for my female BC way before she came home. I figured it'd fit and be perfect or it wouldn't and it'd be ironic. It just happens to fit!

I had a GSD name picked out, but unless I wait until there's a B litter, I'll have to pick something else.

I always always think up names. I have a list of about 40

Maddy was named even before the adoption was finalised. I had a short list of 4 (Maddy, Skye, Bella and Caley)...but I knew I would likely go with Maddy. I ordered her collar tag before I even met her

No, not really. I do have a long list of possible future dog names, but I don't think I've yet to name any of my dogs anything on that list. I like to wait until I've met the puppy as lots of times I have had names picked in advance and the puppy and that name just did not go well together.
