Default Naming the Beast

My puppy is currently nameless. I only just picked him up today, so I feel like it's acceptable that he hasn't been named yet, but he's starting puppy classes on Friday and he's tagging along to Pig's agility class tomorrow and he just needs a name. Before I was even committed to his litter, I was calling future Mastiff Stitch. However, now that he's home I just don't know how I feel about it for him. When I knew that I was definitely getting a puppy from his litter, I started to consider Badger.

Part of me wants to stick with the animal theme since I already have a Bear and a Pig. And Badger would be a fitting name for the little guy, because there are times when he just 'don't care.' I also like the name Weasel, but only in theory. It fits the animal theme, but it could also be a reference to A Song of Ice and Fire and Harry Potter. I don't think I could see myself actually calling a dog Weasel though.

So far I've narrowed it down to:
Badger
Weasel
Stitch
Fred
George
Jameson
Peanut
Tater
Archer
Dobby

I'm leaning towards "Mischief Managed" as his registered name, so I feel like one of the Harry Potter names would be most fitting. My sister likes Stitch and Jameson the best, and argues that Stitch was always getting into trouble and Jameson often leads to mischief.

Does anyone have any thoughts? Or suggestions for a different name?

This is the little guy by the way

If I had a dog named Badger it would forever be this.

Payton was "Puppy" for almost two weeks so don't feel bad if you can't settle on anything right away!

I think he looks like Dobby would be perfect for him.

Tater! Oh my god, name him Tater! <3

Don't feel bad, my Simi was puppy for about two weeks, I think, before I finally found the perfect name for her.

I LOVE the name Badger, but I am pretty biased. My favorite shelter dog ever was named Badger. It's a pretty awesome name though.

Badger has been one of my favorite names for a long time! I also think George would be a great name for a mastiff Congrats, he's adorable!

GRAWP!!!! OH PLEASE NAME HIM GRAWP!!!!

If you named him Mundungus, you could call him Dung for short.

He honestly looks kind of like a Cedric though. I like Dobby too.

You could give him a centaur name. Bane, Firenze, Ronan?
