What did you name your Hav, and Why?

Hi Everyone!
I am a newbie...just brought home my baby one week ago. I need to take some pics to post so you all can see how YUMMY she is!! She is a beautiful Sable.

I named her "Daisy"...just because I think it's such a sweet name. But reading on this forum...there are A LOT of pups named Daisy here!!!

So, I was curious about what name everyone chose and why. I generally like "people" names for pets, but, went with Daisy just because when I think of daisies, I just think of Springtime and sweetness.

So, do tell about your name choices!! ~Pamela

Smarty was named that because she was and is the smartest animal I have ever owned. When she was little it was always "aren't you a little Smarty" and it stuck.

Galen was named when we got her from HRI.
Mrs. Boo because she was scared of everything.
Chance because of his breeding and who he was to become.
Win (a Chance son aks WinSome Walkaway) that is what he did.
Star for a marking on her head

Our animal names have come because of something that strikes us when we first meet the animal
.

Sandi, taking a new road with Smarty and Galen

Santos is the color (close enough anyway) of my favorite team, the New Orleans Saints. I added some Spanish flair to give his Cuban background props, and hence "Santos."

WHO DAT!

When I first discovered the Havanese breed, a friend had told me that there was a lady in Olympia who ran an upscale specialty store who let her Hav "Sophie" run about the place (she even had her own pillow in one of the display windows) Well, I had taken my five year old grand daughter to see her, then later when she was with me to pick a puppy, I let my granddaughter name her. So she said, "I know , Gram_e..how about "Sophie" So that settled it.

Then, when I went with a friend who was getting her 2nd Hav I saw and fell in love with Gabriel, whose name my other granddaughter had picked.

Love your choice of names. Naming is always difficult for me, so many cute names. I kept calling my "found" dachshund little one, and one of my customers told me about Kendli so the name stuck. One cat rescue was up in a tall tree for 8 days until I had a tree company guy actually go up in a bucket with a carrier and a can of cat food to get her down...since I did not like the name Pine, I named her Willow. Another cat rescue came to my house close to Christmas, she looked so fat, but it was all hair, when I could not find an owner, I named her Holly Noel.

We call our foundling, "honorary hav" Hani because it means cheerful and happy, and that's what he is.

Kipling was named after running lists and lists and lists - we had hundreds of names - but our 8 and 10 year old - one boy and one girl, plus DH and I all needed to agree. Kipling is the name of a street near our house and that's just the name that ended up sticking. It's unique, but pronounce-able much like my kid's names so it seemed to suit our family's naming preferences. For a long time he was going to be things like Furby, Muppet, Muppy, or ...get ready Ryan...Beamer. My son also liked Rocket, Relay, or Rookie.

Murray is a 2 y/o rescue and already named. It seems to suit him well.

My significant other is Italian-American--so we wanted an Italian theme for the names. So we ended up with Pace (pah-che) and Felice (fe-li-che). Pace means peace in Italian, and Felice means happiness. Both names suit their personalities perfectly.

Pace and Felice
