How did you pick your pup's name?

Since Havanese originated in Cuba, when my mom got her Hav 5 years ago, she wanted a Spanish name - she picked Diego!

So, in keeping with this tradition, we named our Hav Benito (Benny for short).

It is only by coincidence that BOTH Diego and Benny are characters on the cartoon Dora the Explorer! LOL!

Perhaps I will get another one and name him Tico, or Boots!

Diego is really not used often in Cuba, more so in other Latin America Countries.
Now, Benito, is an old Cuban Name as in very popular in the 40s, 50s & 60s. Think of Benny Moré (Cuban Singer).

As for how I picked mine, for our first, we love to watch a children show called "Avatar, The Last Airbender", we love a character named King Bumi, an earth bender who is hysterical. So we decided on Bumi for our first Hav.
Our Second, I wanted to keep the name of his Mom and Dad, and use a short name that had at least one letter from his full name. So Toby (which can be short for Tobias, an old Cuban Name as well), is Starborn (from Mom) mi Pequeño (from Dad) Tesoro (T for Toby). I know...complicated...

My boys love Avatar!

Great names!

My mom thought to name Diego Fidel, but she didn't think everyone would think it was as funny as we did.

Being Cuban, anything named Fidel

PS: There is a new show continuing the Avatar Legend. I think is called "the Legend of Kora" or something like that. The new Avatar is a girl now "Kora", Aang is dead but Katara shows up and Aang's son too.

Yea, we knew Fidel would not be cool.

yeah, the last air bender ended when he won the war and took the powers from the fire Lord, then he was kissing Katara and everyone assumed they would get married. In this new show, it appears that they did and had a few kids, but he must have died because they all "remember" him, but he is not in the show. Katara is there, looking like her Granny looked in the very first episode of Avatar.
Is a nice show (the new one), I actually ended up watching it alone in the living room last week, my boys (almost 9 y/o) left me there and went to watch Ninjago in my room! Sad...I know...

I had to smile at the idea of naming the dog Fidel...but yes, probably a good idea you didn't . We named Jasmine after night-blooming Jasmine we came across one night on an out-island in the Bahamas where we spend a lot of time. We (my bf and I) had just begun dating and were at a soft-ball game played by local kids, one of our friends was coaching them that night. We wandered up the road to get some ice cream from a little grocery and came across the jasmine...divine.... We got a Havanese to have a dog to take down to the island. Our lab is too big, unfortunately.

I realized just last month that my yards, both front and back, are full of confederate jasmine. I bought the house last summer after the flowers were gone, and just thought the plants were some kind of vine. Imagine my delight when they burst into flower this spring, just after I brought our little Jasmine home!

Kodi's dam is named Alaska, so the litter was named with that state in mind. Traveltime's Kodiak is Kodi.

Shelby was supposed to be Cassie, but wouldn't respond to that name. She comes from a line of Shelbys, so I tried that and presto...she liked that name and so did we. It just fits her.

we got Tillie from a breeder near Tillamook Oregon and went to the factory the day after we had picked Tillie out ... while there we saw a statue of "Tillie the Cow" the Tillamook Cheese factory mascot... and that was that! Everyone that meets her says the same thing when they learn her name ... "she is SUCH a Tillie!" LOL

Maccabee was born on the first day of Chanukah, so we went with a Chanukah theme.

Registered name: Starborn Light My Fire, for the Chanukah candles
Call name: Maccabee, for Judah Maccabee, who is generally known as the hero of Chanukah (the Jewish festival of Hanukkah celebrates the re-dedication of the Temple following Judah Maccabee's victory over the Seleucids).
