Default Help naming a pup?

So I'm picking up this little guy to foster, tomorrow. He's approximately 5 weeks old, being weaned at the moment... he was purchased at 3.5 weeks from the "breeder" off of craigslist and the owners dumped him a day later when they couldn't tolerate his whining at night; probably because he still needed to nurse!



So he'll be staying with me until he's old enough to get all of his vaccines and get neutered, and then adopted... but I can't think of a good name! So I'd love help with new suggestions.. the only name I have thought of so far is "Zap" and it doesn't seem to fit.

I like names that are very unique, words, etc. that flow... preferably one or two syllables. He's a pit or boxer mix, fyi.

Thanks in advance!

Spotty noses are absolutely the best.

I'm really liking Hector and Fizz.

I also got some suggestions on another forum and like the name "Carlin" as well... Which means "little champion" in idk hat language.. But sort of significant and I love George Carlin so that would be cool!

Still open to more suggestions, of course!

For some reason, he looks like an Elmo to me.

Unfortunately, I was told I could name him, then they decided to stick with a naming contest that I just got an email about so I have to choose from a list of names in the next week on our facebook page.

These are the names suggested so far.

Peanut
Verlander
Berkley
Cooper
Bear
Buster
Jake
Lucky Louie
Lucas/Luke
Happy
Roy
Maxwell (Max)
Nugget
Rocky
Craig

Of them, I like Luke or Sampson, but I'm hoping for more. It'd be unfair to have someone else suggest Carlin(my top pick right now), but if anyone wants to go suggest names themselves, you can check out the public link on my page here to the thread on their facebook to vote!

I could see him being an 'Elmo'. A 'Fizz' as well. He's absolutely adorable!

I had a foster puppy once that was destined to be named via a naming contest. I had already been calling her Beep so all I did was talk to as many people I could into voting for Beep. It worked, Beep won. Best name ever. And then she got adopted and they changed her name to Bella.

LOL that is awesome, Sara. I like Beep, too!

This is the appropriate link, I believe, to suggest awesome names for him to have!
