Great topic! When I was looking for names, before I got Benjamin, I was thinking that a little dog should have a dignified name. You know, kind of opposite to the big scary dog "Fluffy" in the Harry Potter movie. So, I was thinking along the lines of Arthur, Christopher, Benjamin, etc. Then when I got the first picture from the breeder I thought, "Oh, he's cute as a button", so I named him Benjamin Button. I only use his full name when he is in trouble, though.

Lola. It's a little sweet and a little bossy, just like my little girl. My neighbors call her Cocoa Puff.


Here she is a couple days ago at the park with her over protective big brother, Watson, lounging behind.

Haha. Emichel, I thought I was unique!!

I saw an add for Hav puppies on sale in small town outside the city (common situation here) and asked the breeder for a video of the puppies so i can chose one for him to an agreed location (midway to both of us).

He sent me a video and I saw this cute little fluff ball running across the room to where his daughter was and trying to run off with her Elmo teddy bear (Elmo was like 3 times the size of Teddy but he was determined to take off with it!)

I was considering the name "Cuddles" (because he looked cuddly) or "Teddy Bear" (because he looked like a Teddy Bear!)

A neighbour saw him as we were walking into the building (I had just picked him up from the breeder) and said he looked like a Teddy bear and that I should name him Teddy. it was already a name I was considering so easy choice!!

He's full name is actually Teddy Bear but I also only use his full name when he is in trouble!

Oh lots of replies. Thanks everyone for indulging me in my curiosity. I'm loving all the stories and names you've chosen. It kind of gives me a new way of looking at your dogs.

Scout is from Canada so we couldn't visit until it was time for us to pick him up. My husband wanted to call him Scooter and I wanted Scout. I mentioned to his breeder we were unable decide between the two names. When we arrived for our visit she had been calling him Scout because he didn't scoot! She said her husband had been a boy scout leader and now he is our Canadian Scout.

Since my husband named our last little girl Bichon, Magic - after Magic Johnson, I got dibs on the name this time around. I wanted a name that was totally a cute little girl name and Molly fit her perfectly!

Heather, I love that you have your little "Canadian Scout". It's perfect.

Molly is the ideal name for a sweet little girl and suits your adorable baby perfectly.

When we brought Ricky home at 9 months old he had TWO previous names. We thought both were inappropriate. We wanted a name that reflected his personality - an entertainer, a clown, energetic, friendly, good looking, a lady "friend" in every port, and a Cuban. Ricky Ricardo came to mind immediately. And the name fits him perfectly. When people see him they smile. When they ask me his name, and I tell them, they burst out laughing! And then Ricky wants them to pick him up to give them a beso (a kiss), and Ricky is living his destiny!

His name just cracks me up. It's perfect. Do you call him by his full name or just Ricky? I love that his name reflects his heritage. Good choice.

I named my puppy Asbjorn, because where I live that's the name of an old, sturdy reliable man. A cozy grandpa... And my puppy looks like a grandpa already
