Hey all,

Picking a name for our soon to arrive dog is proving harder than naming children.
He will be a working dog so will need a short snappy name.
As he's and English springer it's traditionally English old man names we're looking at.

Suggestions so far...


What do you think? Please inspire me.

Tuckingfits, you get the name that springer award!

His name is Jerry!

I was still swaying towards Alf but DH will be working him and decided Jerry worked best. The pun on Jerry springer didn't click with him at all. Itbticklesme a bit still.

Such a nice pup. I hope he's as good as his dad (our other springer, not DH smile )

You'vecattobekiddingme, I think you mentioned Jerry first. DH has wanted that from day one and thinks it'll work well to call.

Pup is coming tomorrow so we'll see.

I had a dog called dog literally his name was deogi
Pronounced d.o.g sounded kind of Italian lol everyone loved it when I said he's called deogi & they suddenly realised smile

Our Springer is Storm

The shortlist included

Blue (would have been totally wrong for him though)

And I quite fancied Keith (Moon the Loon)

Brilliant suggestions there all. I'm actually laughing away to myself here.

I have to wait and see him I think too.

Thanks again, I'll let ye know the outcome.

Ooh, we pick our working cocker up in 8 days and have also spent MANY hours deliberating on names.
Personally I love Ned or Ted but we use "bed" as a command so I am devastated know that it won't work as a name sad
How about Pip? DS was hankering after Reg (!) which we vetoed smile

We work ours too and I like names like Scott, that can be Scottie in the house and a short and sharp Scott when working. As it is our new boy will be Ghillie smile

... Walter, Perry, Hunter, Seamus, Oliver, Brody, Casper, Zeke, Douglas, Jonah, Billy, Gunner, Griffin, Abel, Ezra, Garrett, Lennon, Ringo, Saul, Tristan. Gone a bit overboard, haven't I?! But boys names are so much easier than girls somehow.

Stanley, Ernie, Eric, Harvey, Harry, Sarge, Sage, Chester, Henry, Barney, Mickey
