Springer/labrador-cross names - any ideas anyone?

(23 Posts)

We will be getting our springer/labrador cross male puppy in about 2 weeks. He is a very scruffy-looking liver and white. I would ideally like one syllable if possible. My beloved Border Collie who died in June was called Tom, so that is out. I came up with Floyd and was outvoted by the entire family. I've got (seemingly) the whole county thinking up names but nothing seems right yet.
Could any of you help, please?

our next dog will be Fletcher regardless of sex...cos I think its just a cool name for a dog...

NorkyPies - Jack! Funny you should say that - my DS2 has just left for uni and I'm getting a puppy. Guess what DS name is .....

We have a Springer called Jake, but also considered Freddie, Sam, Seamus, Albus, Dudley, Dexter smile

OP, I had it in mind to say 'as long as you don't have a DS with that name', but I like to keep my posts short!

Ha! Other DS is Sam. In my defence, DS chose his own name (well, he just looked like a Sam) and DH chose DS2 name. I often think I'm using all my baby names on the animals

Some friends had a pair of spaniels called Hoover and Dyson.

bob would be good for when he is bobbing up and down in a springer type style grin imo

Rags. Perfect for a scruffy type smile

Why not just Scruff?

Thanks for all your ideas - I'll put photos on when my puppy arrives and introduce myself properly

Ooh, am hijacking/eavesdropping for names for our labrador cross male puppy arriving on Saturday.....(other bit is possibly beagle/lurcher)

I do like Jack....(he's currently Risk, there you go, a one syllable name grin)

If Scruff is too -er scruffy, how about Scamp?

Agh bless we have spaniel x lab she is called Poppy or 'Popadoos' bless her.

If she had been a male dog dh wanted to call him either Dave or Ben :-)
