Vote for your favorite name: Benji or Hershey

We are getting a new Havanese in a few weeks. My son had picked the name Benji, but when we saw the dog, which is a chocolate Havanese, we thought of Hershey for him. The name has meaning to us as my husband grew up near Hershey, and his grandfather worked in the Hershey factory for 40 years. We are debating the name. Your vote would be appreciated: Benji or Hershey

I liked it anyway, but with all the history and meaning behind it, I vote for Hershey. What a cutie!

Hershey -- hands down.

He looks a lot like Snickers. When I first met Snicks, I was way confused with her white tipped curly tail -- one second I'd see a white patch on her right side and the next it'd be on her left.

Yeah, Hershey...

Cheers!

He's so cute!

Will your son be very upset if you change names? You still have a few weeks to convince him that Hershey is the best name ever.
