Hi, we're getting a female chocolate labrador pup soon and would appreciate some name suggestions!
We have a magnetic notice board on our fridge and for the last few weeks the whole family has been adding/removing names on a daily basis but we can't agree on one (it's nearly as bad as trying to decide on names for the kids!)
Help Mumsnetters!

I know of a black lab called Perdy (Purdy? Purdy?) which is a name I love. I suppose it could be short for Perdita?

Wasn't Perdy the Joanna Lumley character in The Avengers?

I had Henry and I think henrietta would be lovely!

Gertie (Gertrude)

Or Nutella?

Chaos. If I get a dog, and I want a lab, this will be their name!

Bisto or Oxo? A friend has 2 choc labs called this!

We have a Betty, she definitely looks like a Betty little princess

Hi we have 2 year old choc lab called Rolo & a tabby kitten called Wispa!!

Thanks everyone, lots of good names. We've added some to our shortlist(which has become a lot longer!)
I love the name Trouble but wonder if it may become a self-fulfilling prophecy!
We're leaning more towards human names at the moment but will make the final decision once we've met her.
With each of our three DC we changed our minds completely about a chosen name after they were actually born!
I appreciate people taking the time to make suggestions.x

Nora (Geddit?)
Sugar (Shug for short)

We have a black lab, and spent days making lists of names. He was referred to as PJ in the meantime (Puppy J(oursurname) - it's never changed!

I always wanted a choc lab named Emma actually.

I was about nine when I read Emma's story, a real life account of one puppys journey to be a guide dog and then read the other books by her owner.

We have a choc lab called Coco (sorry, PlasticLentilWeaver blush), and my PIL had one called Fudge.

I'd love to have a choc lab called Smartie. I think whatever name you choose has to reflect their slightly dim but loveable natures, and their uber-cuddliness.

I think Winnie is a good idea, and also Doris, Bertha, and Aggie.

I like Buttons and also Frog (DS is a big Harry Potter fan!) if you are going with a chocolate theme. You could also have Chip or Drop grin

We always seem to go for human names and are currently in discussion over new dog names for our impending puppy. However hard I stamp my feet and come up with witty dog names we always seem to end up with a human name <sigh>

Our choc lab/springer cross ended up being Hazel but I wanted Truffle or Button.
