we just got a puppy from the dog rescue centre, she is a 10 week old cross lab/collie and is totally black.

We can't agree on a name for her so any suggestions would be great.

I watched Ben Fogle on TV last night and he has a black lab called Inca - I thought that was lovely

I love human names for animals - we had cats called Colin and Clive smile

I read somewhere that names ending in 'ie' sound (eg Blacky) are easier for dogs to learn.

Remember you have to stand outside calling the name!

What kind of names do you like? Human names? Things like Treacle/Toffee? Names from literature/mythology?

I really like trixie. If this was my thread I'd be posting to say the dog's called Trixie.

I wish I had called my dog a doggy name instead of a human's name, I get so mixed with the kids names
Love the name Inca
