I still like all mine
Pax came with that name and since it means peace is very well suited for him.
JackJack ( jack) was named for the baby in the incredibles. he turns to diffrent things just as fast as that wee child. (Sides you should see the weird looks we get when i tell him to lay down as he learned dutch when we spoke to pax, so he knows Jack off means to lay down..LOL)
Puck is named for robin goodfellow from a midsummers night dream ofc. Though half the time he answers to monkey which is what he gets called when he is balanced on the back of the couch perching to jump in my lap.

I named all three of the dogs and I still love all of them. I can't imagine different names for anyone - although I REALLY wish I had spelled Mu's name Moo. I have no idea why I thought it was a good idea to spell it the way I did.

I do sometimes wish I had let Matt name Tipper Fish like he wanted to...just because it's funny and then people wouldn't be like "Oh you named her after Tipper Gore?? *hur hur*"

Bobsie came to me as Bobbie when she was about eight years old... Bobby being the name of the guy that raped me as a kid... that had to change, but couldn't be changed TOO far. Bobsie is OK, but I wish I could have renamed her something FAR from her original.
Doom's name, I love. Love, love, love. People look at me and go "Oh, he must be really mean." and if it someone I don't trust, I say "Yeah," and tell them about the time my x broke into my house and got bitten... LOL
Piglet... well, Jon named her. Its better than Montana. I couldn't help but think of Hannah Montana (UGH!!!) every time I thought of her name, and she and Winnie are BFF's so I guess Piglet works... Plus Winnie can sorta say it if "IG!!! IG!!!" counts... Probably my fault for calling her Pig and Pig Pie all the time... LOL

I love Suzie's name, even though I don't usually care for human names on dogs. Well, I suppose I don't mind as long as it fits, and its not a name of a human I know I guess.
The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don't always soften the bad things, but vice-versa, the bad things don't necessarily spoil the good things and make them unimportant.

I almost named Pip "Flower" after the skunk in Bambi, because we were brainstorming black and white things, but my husband really really didn't like it. Pip suits him way better though, so I'm glad I didn't. (It's nothing to do with being black and white, but just an obscure way to name your dog "Spot" - the spots on dice are called pips.)

I still like my dogs' names! (I'd change them if I didn't LOL)

Ruger's name I had picked out for a future dog, and it fit him perfectly!

Bukra's name I put a lot of time into it. Originally, he was going to be Jordan (after the country), but I couldn't get over the "Like Michael Jordan?!" so I ditched that idea haha

Jolene's is another name I had picked out. I said, 'I want to name a dog Jolene!' and a week later, the situation surrounding her came into play!

Zealand's name I absolutely love.. it's so him! I spent weeks before he came home, trying to decide on a name and getting worried that nothing sounded just right. When I picked him up, he wasn't in the car more than 5 minutes before the name popped into my head.

Love all three of mine. Their names suit them.

I don't like Darlas name...but it kind of fits her. I like the name Kenai, and Karma, both names fit them well.

My current dogs' names are very, very common. But they suit them so well, so I love them.

Abby is spunky, lively and loves to get her own way. She can be a complete pain in the bum. But very funny. I've been outwitted by her on more than one occasion.

Grace is sweet, fun-loving, calm, loving. You can depend on her for big stafford cuddles to make your day all ok no matter what. People get a laugh out of her name because Staffords don't seem like the most graceful or sophisticated dogs around (they are clowns really) but once you get past the belching and the other, numerous guttural sounds and her big smile and wiggly bum, there IS a grace and sweetness about her that makes her name really suit.

I still love Quinn's name. It's short, feminine but not too fruity or girly, pretty uncommon, and it has a bit of a background to it (she's named after Quintan Blue, a cutting horse, and I'll be following this theme for my next dog as well).
