Litter theme-Help wanted!

I was not expecting this for another few months, but it looks like we are going to have a litter due sometime mid-June! I am very bad with litter themes, so I decided to let my forum buddies come up with the theme and names for my Brutus/Alley repeat.

I am open to pretty much anything...and I know how creative you guys are! So...let the ideas flow! LOL Looking forward to hearing what you all come up with!

Oh how exciting! You know we can't get enough of puppies around here. I'm sure our theme/name expert Missy will jump right in and come up with the most beautiful suggestions.

It was one of favorite parts of getting a puppy. I had thousands of names. Every once in a while I find the list stuck in one of my dog training books-- it's fun to look back. I will give it more though-- but for a first try-- let's go for a June theme:

Juno
June bug
Beetle
Summer
Moonstone
Rose
Thorn
Solstice

OK-- take two: Since Alley and Brutus seem hot to trot and couldn't wait til summer!!! I think it should be lovers -- or---"Love means never having to say your sorry"

Anthony
Cleopatra
(Hail Brutus)
Darcy (pride and prejudice)
Lizzie
Heathcliff
(wuthering heights
Catherine
Rhett
Scarlett
(ooooh for that little red girl that is going to be MINE)
Gatsby
Daisy


and dating myself here-- But in honor of Alley's 2nd litter-- the two lovers from the 1970 movie Love Story staring Ali McGraw and Ryan O'Neil, where that saying came from: "Love means never having to say your sorry"

their characters names were

Oliver
Jennifer


but one went to

Harvard

the other to

Radcliffe

or simply

Ali
Preppy

Ohmygosh Missy! You don't waste any time jumping right into it. LOL!! I love it!

Diane, is there anything about Alley or Brutus that you can describe to the forum that makes them unique?

I have watched other breeders do litter themes on the 'repeat/remake' theme and stuck with movies that were remakes. That could be a direction to use...

Do you have anything significant that comes to mind? Chicago is always a theme option too. Windy for a girl, (I just blanked on a second name that came to mind - yikes!).

This should be a fun litter for you!

Maybe a summertime theme like seashells?

Nautilus
Conch or Concha
Abalone (Abby)
Risso
Bula
Cavoline
Margarite
Triton
Tugalia
Lyria
Delphinula
Colus
Cowry

Oh my, there are hundreds....but there's a few to get you started, some unusual, but lots can be shortened into really cute names.
