Luce was "Grace" at the shelter. Just... no. Plus one of my coworkers had a dog named Grace and that was just too confusing.

Harv was "Bear". He is so not a Bear. He's my little old man so I gave him an old man name.

Meg's name was Spice, which I just plain didn't like. She didn't respond to it at all, and I decided that she could have a new name to go with her new life.

Emna was nameless and well it just fit her when I seen the name. The name just popped out at me. Jazz was Xena at the breeders. I came up with a list of names and I liked Jazz the best. My next dobe girl I want to name Paris. Im not going to change Wart's name. It fits with his reg name.

Mini was named "Snoopy". I was horrified at having a female Beagle named Snoopy, but she didn't answer to it anyway. We were trying to come up with a name for her, and in the meantime my son, Will, started referring to her as mini Fred, for obvious reasons, and she started to answer to it- so Minifred she is to this day.

Uncle Fred was called Fred by the rescue people, and my husband mentioned that he resembled his Uncle Fred, so there you have it. He doesn't recognize just plain "fred" as his name. He only answers to Uncle Fred, or Moose.

RD>> which Zaphod is he named after (HHGTTG?)

I have changed the name of some fosters. The worst was a JRT named Jack. We called him Zipper. He took to the new name really quickly. Bounce's name at the breeder's was Fly. I like Bounce a lot better, and WOW is it the right name for her. Kaiden was Rayray...ewwwww. His name was then going to be Kandinsky (my fave artist) but Mark started calling him Kadinky do that stopped that name. Sizzle came with her name and I thought it was a great name so it stuck. Scandal, well I had the name picked out loong before she was born, so she got called that even at the breeders. (it too is a good name for her) Dash came with Dash, and it works on two levels. He likes to dash about and he is very dashing.

I give litter names to the puppies I have. Snip's name was always Snip (his mom bit his umbilical cord off waaayyy to short) Dekka's litter name was Sausage (she was such a fat thing) when I decided she was THE puppy to keep, she got a new name.

Fozzie was "Willie Blue Eye", in his foster home. I considered naming him Gilligan... and sometimes I wish I would have.

Gonzo was "Hank", before I adopted him. I considered naming him Archie, or Rocco. I think Gonzo fits him the best. ; D

Yup, that's the one

And don't you think "Trillian" fits RD to a tee?
