Have passed a recent homecheck and today met our potential new dog!! A whippet/collie x something else! Our boy dog and kids were smitten and DH. Rescue advise another couple nights sleep before we collect her.

Need a new name so suggsestions please ladies!

Should add, she's approx 4 so not exactly a pup...

LadyTurmoil Sun 04-Nov-12 22:21:37

What colour(s) is she?

Inthepotty Sun 04-Nov-12 23:06:55

Black and white, mainly black

I'm really bad at girl's names, don't know why, but thought of Blaze and Whisper (maybe too boyish), Becky, Kate, Maggie, Rachel, Indy, Star, Bella, Willow, Candy, Emma, Trifle, Tess, Lottie and Martha smile

How about a proper old lady name. Ethel, maude etc

Disclaimer: pregnancy hormones may be affecting my name decisions smile

We went with Betty for our pup, I love the old lady names! What about Elsie?! Poppy seems very popular around here. Good to go with two syllables I'd heard....

Does she already have a name though? Should a new name have a similar sound?

My DB's female dog is called Bob (Think Blackadder) smile

Nooo not Poppy! DD is called Poppy, and DD being Dear Daughter. Not Dear Dog.

Blimey golden that's the SHORT list?!

Have narrowed down to...

Annie
Winnie
Val or
Tully (short for tallulah!)

LadyTurmoil Thu 08-Nov-12 17:54:55

Tully is definitely my favourite - good name!

TheCunnyFuntWearingAPoppy Thu 08-Nov-12 19:37:55

I like Annie or Tully, my first and favourite teacher at primary school was called Mrs Tully smile

Although, tbf she probably still is called Mrs Tully.
