I love Desotos name I think it will always be my favorite of my dogs names. I can not imagine him being anything else.
Radars name I like a lot but I could see him being several other things too. I thought about Murray, Harrison and Woodstock when I named him and I still sometimes wish I had picked one of them.

I looovveee my dog's names. The one thing I don't like is when I get looks like, "WTF Where did that name come from?" like they should be named something more "normal". I like them having unique names

I loved my Doberman's name, Lyric. It wasn't common and he was music to my ears. lol.

I am also fond of my two Chihuahua's names. Even though Jose` is not an uncommon name, it suits him...he looks like a Jose`. And Chulita is just right for my little diva. It means, in Mexican slang, "cute little chick." Or something to that effect. So, I haven't tired of their names yet and they're 10 and almost 12 years old. Oh dang! I forgot Jose`'s birthday! It was March 1st.

I do like Ivans name. I just wish it when people hear it, the first phrase that comes to mind is Ivan the terrible. Even though it fits at times. Ohh well.

I sometimes still wish I could have come up with something different for Payton - especially after this past weekend when the agility person I know with a Payton was around (and Louisville will be interesting because we are camping next to each other so how much "PAYTON!" will be going on, LOL...)
But it just suits him so well, I can't even imagine what else I could have named him. I tried and tried and tried LOL. So I don't think I will ever be unhappy with Payton. Besides, how can you be unhappy knowing he was named after Walter Payton...

Auggie's name is still perfect for him. The only thing I wish is that his namesake had been a better basketball player in the NBA LOL.

I would change Pepper's name if I could but I can't, so I've never even really thought about what I would change it to. I just don't really think the name suits her...

I absolutely adore my dogs' names. Classic fits him so freaking well... and Zuma is fun to say. Zuma's nickname is Zoom and that fits her perfectly. I can't imagine them named anything else.

My cats are name Grover and Remi. I live with Remi, husband picked that name, I'm sure I could've come up with something more creative but she was the first pet we got together so I let him choose. Grover is perfect, he sounds like Grover.

Envy, Edgar, Mighty Mouse, Famous

I didn't like the name Elsie before I named her. She was going to be Charlotte or Sawyer, but when I picked her up it was like, "Whoops, no, she's an Elsie."

And she is.

Even though Harleigh's name is pretty common (although generally spelled differently), I love it because it totally suits her.

Morgan's name had to grow on me, but now? I love it. It's perfect for him. To me, it's like his name contains everything that he is in one word.

When we first picked it, though, I thought, "this is a STUPID name". LOL!
