We are getting her on Monday, we have looked up basset names on the net, and cannot agree. DD likes 'sweet' names, the ds's don't. Any ideas?

Terbor as in Trebor Basset ?

I like it, but it's more of a male name.

my dd has asked for a puppy. She wants to call it Jude. It's sad because that was the name of our beloved dog that is no longer with us.

There's a whole bunch of very traditional hound names (and I mean hundreds) which are proven to be easy to shout across open country!

Sadly I can't find a list online but some that are fun include:

Havoc (as in 'Cry Havoc, and..')

I dunno, while I love them, maybe they're a bit 'grand' for little ones...

We were considering Wilma, as in Fred and Wilma Flintstone. This is my fourth basset, the others were Cassie, Columbo, and Dilly.......They are stubborn dogs who do their best to train their owners and normally succeed, they love sleeping and eating and lying on the furniture.

I've got a friend named Freda, who wouldn't understand.

Bartleby's nice for a male, and I like Jude. Will run these by the dcs.

Butter. As in "Nothin' butter hound dog"

Ds1 thinks Rosie is too girly

SweetyDarling Fri 03-Aug-07 11:28:46

And yes I know those aren't the real lyrics!

Love Butter. Looking back over the list Tess struck me as good, told the kids, I forgot thats Granny's name

CountessDracula Fri 03-Aug-07 11:41:36

my dog is a hound and called Ruby
it suits her so well

CountessDracula Fri 03-Aug-07 11:43:07

I also think Nell is v sweet for a dog

SweetyDarling Fri 03-Aug-07 11:46:31

You may as well call her Granny then Zaphod!

Saturn74 Fri 03-Aug-07 11:47:38

Pumpkin or
Bumpkin or

Would you believe I spent the morning trying to convince the kids Ruby was a good name?

PellMell suggested Rebo, which inspired me to think of Reba...that's a good ol' gals name, right?
