What did you name your Hav and why?

I have to admit I love names. I love knowing the meaning of a name and choosing names. Whenever I get a pet, even if it's a fish, I will spend days (sometimes longer) finding the perfect name, sometimes before the pet even arrives. So I would love to know what names you all have for your adorable Havanese and why/how you chose that name. If you'd like to add a photo to go with the name, all the better.

Yikes, I didn't mean to put this in the photo section. Sorry. How do I move it to discussions? Anyone know how?

I have always loved the word Whimsy and the definition is perfect for her. According to the dictionary ..it is a noun capricious humor or disposition; extravagant, fanciful, or excessively playful expression
I had just two names picked out and let my grandchildren pick the one they liked best. I had it all ready to go long before I picked her up.

I'm a photographer, and wanted names to reflect that. Both my dogs came from Starborn Havanese, so that had to be the prefix for their names. "Kodi" is Starborn Kodak Moment:

Thank you both for your stories behind the names. I just love hearing them.
Whimsy: Whimsy is beautiful and looks like a princess sitting on her throne. All she needs is a crown.
Krandall: I love your "kids" names and now that I know their full name and your meaning behind it, I love them even more. Great choices.

Our little Truffles had to be something chocolate. If she had been a boy it would have been Snickers.
