We are adopting a dog from a rescue in Cyprus and her name is currently something fairly hard for the DC to pronounce - any suggestions as to a new one? She's a scruffy-looking golden creature but very cute.

DD has suggested Gypsy because she's travelled a long way. What do people think of that?

Maggie...our beloved Golden Retrievor's (PTS today aged 13) nickname. Real nane Bailey but grew into Maggie- Belfast expression- 'you're as thoughother as Maggie Moore' (sort of hints at scruffiness!) suited her...Xx

My first thought was 'Dolly' as in Dolly Parton.

I do like Gypsy - as long as you promise to post pics of her looking all windswept and well travelled grin

Gypsy is lovely although I suppose it makes me think of a Sophia Loren type or the girls from the gypsy encampment in From Russia with love rather than Marilyn.. what about Amy, Gina, Blondie, Macie, Pippa, Primrose

Still at deadlock - have uploaded a couple of pictures onto my profile for inspiration!

Sprocket (was it fragile rock?), or Popcorn.

I like Gypsy and Flossie too.

Ooo shes absolutely gorgeous, definitely a Gypsy or Floss.

Aquelven Tue 08-Jan-13 20:13:11

I have a Flossie grin
Well, she's Florence really but gets Flossie. She's a big, blonde dopey Skye.

I like Flossie


Magda, she could pull off Magda

"Helen" (flanagan) sorry couldn't resist it was the first name that came into my head when I read your thread title.

What do we think of the name Duffy? Blonde and shaggy, although the real one is fairly classy. Can't bring myself to call her Jordan or Kerry wink.
