We've had our 9 week old spaniel x puppy a week now, and still she has no name hmm

She looks very spaniely & is nearly completely black.

Our other dog is called Rosie so I'd like a name which sounds completely different (I read it would be easier for them to differentiate then) and I don't really want another human name.

Ideally I'd like something nature/space/star etc orientated & I like the sound & meaning of Native American words but I can't find 'the one'

So far the list is;
Nuna (Nativ Am meaning earth)

But I am really looking for other suggestions.

Please please help, its getting embarrassing telling people she's called Puppy because we can't find a name smile

Can't really add anything to that as all my favourites are human names .... Just wanted to say that I love Inca and Luna though, they are both gorgeous grin x

Hold on, just having a look for you ...

Of your list I like Luna.

Hope that helps smile

Personally, I like Iola (eye-ola) and I like Nuna from your list smile

I am sorry. But I don't commit to puppy naming threads unless pics are out on profiles.

It's the rules. I will have to report your op if you fail to produce a cute puppy.

Koko is nice - it means 'night', so that might be in keeping with yoir almost black puppy?

(Anise seeds are used to make liquorice apparently, hence black ...)

Zene might go with your other dog's name, as Zene means 'rose' smile

Like Luna from your list.

Sorry can't really think of a non human name.

Thanks for the link Molotov will check it out.

Also like the suggestions, Juno suits her most out of them altho Iola & Aurora are also really pretty.

DH is right that I have to choose soon or she'll have to be Poppy because it sounds like Puppy grin which is also no good because I don't want another flower name, picky picky picky wink

Aaarrrggghhhh I post so slowly (she needed to wee mid reply) that there's lots more replies which I rudely seemed to ignore.

My friends dog is Cocoa so altho sweet I think Koko would cause probs, my list is slowly getting longer though so thanks.

I don't know how to put a photo on my profile, sorry Honey.

Can I even add a phone from my phone?

HoneyDragon Sat 08-Feb-14 21:26:01


TheBookThief Sat 08-Feb-14 21:26:53 I add a photo from my phone- doh!

HoneyDragon Sat 08-Feb-14 21:27:40

It's a tit getting into your profile on your phone.

I like Fearn or Fern, it is the fourth letter of the Celtic tree alphabet associated with the Alder. If you google fearn and alder together you can find all the background.
