Gender: feminine
Root: Elizabeth

RONIN (Understand that Ronin is not named after the samurai, but after an opera singer... but I somehow got the spelling wrong on the singer's name, so everyone thinks Ronin is named after the samurai. Besides, no one knows who Ronan Tynan is!
Gender: masculine

Meaning: a samurai who had renounced his clan or who had been discharged or ostracized and had become a wanderer without a lord; an outcast; an outlaw. OR.... the Irish spelling means: a pledge, or a "little seal"

Gender: Masculine

Usage: English

Pronounced: WIN-stun [key]

From a surname derived from an English place name, which was in turn derived from the Old English given name Wynnstan meaning "joy stone". A famous bearer was Winston Churchill, the British prime minister during World War II. This name was also borne by the fictional Winston Smith, the protagonist in George Orwell's novel '1984'.

Gender: Masculine & Feminine

Usage: Welsh, English

Pronounced: MOR-gan [key]

From the Old Welsh masculine name Morcant, which was possibly derived from Welsh mor "sea" and cant "circle". As a (possibly unrelated) feminine name it was used by Geoffrey of Monmouth for the Arthurian sorceress Morgan le Fay.
Gender: Feminine

Usage: English

Pronounced: TEE-a [key]

Short form of names ending with tia. It also means "aunt" in Spanish or Portuguese.

According to a few other sites, Tia also means Princess...whcih describes her perfectly.
Tango doesn't have a meaning, as obviously its not classed as a human All I can find is that it was/is a dance, which most, if not all of us already know.

"Tai" I got off of a sushi menu. It means "red snapper," and was perfect for a little red puppy with a penchant for nipping ankles.

"Kimi" means "noble" or "unequaled." While we are STILL working on the noble part- one thing is for sure, this girl is unequaled...she is by all means an alpha bitch.

There was one in Indiana Jones
I LOVE "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade." The Ilsa character is fabulous- a great Doberman name!

Gender: Masculine

Usage: English

Pronounced: FAWS-tur [key]
From a surname which has several different origins: "foster-child" or "foster-parent" (Old English); "shearer" (Old French); "forester" (Old French); "saddle-tree maker" (Old French).

(note that Foster is actually named after the australian lager brother suggested it, and I thought it suited him)

The principal god of the Greek pantheon, ruler of the heavens, and father of other gods and mortal heroes.

Zeus is usually such a dignified dog with a lot of presence. Sweet and loving, but knows the world is his oyster.

-A religion practiced chiefly in Caribbean countries, especially Haiti, syncretized from Roman Catholic ritual elements and the animism and magic of slaves from West Africa, in which a supreme God rules a large pantheon of local and tutelary deities, deified ancestors, and saints, who communicate with believers in dreams, trances, and ritual possessions. Also called vodoun.

-A charm, fetish, spell, or curse holding magic power for adherents of voodoo.

-A practitioner, priest, or priestess of voodoo.

-Deceptive or delusive nonsense.

That name is SO fitting for my Louisiana chaos demon.

Frodo- Derived from the Germanic element frod "wise". This was the name of the hobbit hero in 'The Lord of the Rings' by J. R. R. Tolkien, who used Old English to translate some hobbit names (Frodo's real name was Maura). In the novel Frodo Baggins was the bearer of the One Ring on the quest to destroy it in Mount Doom.

Izzy- Spanish meaning Concecrated to God

Mollie-Hebrew meaning The Perfect One

Latin form of a Persian name meaning "dawn". This was the name of the wife of Alexander the Great.

Gender: Masculine

From Greek ***8216;***913;***953;***948;***951;***962; (Haides), derived from ***945;***953;***948;***951;***962; (aides) meaning "unseen". In Greek mythology Hades was the dark god of the underworld, which was also called Hades. His brother was Zeus and his wife was Persephone.

I knew that about Hades, but I didn't know that Zeus was his brother!

Oh I know! I love the Indiana Jones movies, it's actually where I got Ilsa's name in the first place. Ilsa loves it too - in the movie, Indy yells, "Ilsa! Ilsa don't go!" and Ilsa always runs to the TV and cocks her head, then sits down and watches th emovie for about 2-3 minutes.
