Dear Mn's
We are about to pick up our lovely little border collie pup. She's a little girl and is black and white..

Please help me decide out of these names

Pandora (Panda/Pandy)
Mia (Mimi)

Thanks in advance and Happy New Year.

I like willow.

When naming a pet, consider that it will be called out across a vets waiting room. That reason alone stopped me once using Madonna (i thought it would be funny).

Our of your choices I'd go with Willow, nice respectable name and won't raise an eyebrow like Pandora would

I vote for Maddie.

Teddy sounds like a male name.
Pandora and Mia don't sound like dogs to me

Is Maggie a possibility? Some people think that is a suitable name for a bitchgrin

I like unusual names for dogs, so I think I'd go for Pandora (plus Panda as a nn has a cut B&W connection).

Have fun with your pup!

I love Willow!

Our border collie girl is two now, she's called Lily and is black and white too.

She is adorable but lock up anything you don't want chewed for the next few months, our girl was like a shredder when we first got her, and chewed five electric razors and countless school shoes! Despite this we all love her to bits.

Good luck and Happy New Year to you and your new family member!

You're quite right. We used to have a cat called Fluffybum

Pandora. Everyone's pet is called Willow these days, I know two dogs and a cat.

I like Pandora. I used to have a hamster called mr hamster. It didn't pass the waiting room test :/

Thanks for all the replies so far! Great advice re shouting across the vets room etc!

Maggie is also good so thanks 5foot5..will add that to list!

MakkaPakkastolemystone Wed 31-Dec-14 18:14:49

Aww. She looks like a Pandy.

iggymama Wed 31-Dec-14 18:16:14

I quite like Bella, but she really looks like a Sally to me. She is lovely and very snugglable.

nooka Wed 31-Dec-14 18:17:31

She looks very snuggly (and quite Panda bearish!)

BoreOfWhabylon Wed 31-Dec-14 18:20:23

That (gorgeous) puppy is definitely Panda!

TrinityForce Wed 31-Dec-14 18:23:17

Charge your phone grin

Panda suits so well

DejaVuAllOverAgain Wed 31-Dec-14 18:35:37

Dejadog suggests very strongly that you call her Panda wink

steff13 Wed 31-Dec-14 18:37:49

She looks like a panda, I'd go with that.

TheCunnyFunt Wed 31-Dec-14 18:38:29

Panda, without a doubt!

Bowlersarm Wed 31-Dec-14 18:38:56


Or Bella from your list.

EddieFlorence Wed 31-Dec-14 18:40:13

Thanks again!

I think Panda it is!

Trinity I've just put it on charge grinlol!

Leeds2 Wed 31-Dec-14 18:40:40

Pandora, nn Panda. As long as it goes with your surname, for shouting out at the vet purposes!

EddieFlorence Thu 01-Jan-15 09:54:50

Thank you!

DH still wants Maddie

DC are adamant on Teddy (Teddy Rose)

And I love Pandy/panda

Anyway happy new year !
