So I seem to like mythical and dog names...

I seem to be drawn to names like Rex and Rufus and Antigone and Cassiopeia. And I like cutesy nicknames from long full names. I have so many names I like but can't seem to narrow it down this time which makes me think I haven't found the right one. If you like these kind of names do you have any suggestions for me? I've sneaked in a couple of my own existing children's names. Please don't bother to reply if It's just to express your dislike, I'm well aware they aren't to everyone's tastes.

Cassiopeia (Cassie)
Persephone (Percy)
Theodora (Teddy, Theo, Tess)
Boudicca
Bonnie
Clementine
Antigone (Tiggy)

Atticus (Attie, Ace)
Thaddeus
Rafferty
Oberon
Wolf
Loki
Icarus (Ike)
Sylvester (Sully)
Perseus (Percy)
Fox
Osiris
Rudy
Osian (Oshy)
Odie
Rex
Cassius
Rufus
