We haven't got her yet, not sure when we're picking her up, still need to decide on when would be best. Her name is Rye at the moment, but I don't like it. I prefer names with two syllables.

She's a really lovely dog, very calm and sweet. She took a treat off my 4yo DD ever so gently smile

Names I like-
Willow
Molly

Names that can't be used-
Poppy
Milly
Grace

I know a Border called Betsy. She's a wee smasher!

I think Willow's too soft somehow for a Border. They're feisty, characterful little dogs.

My mum has a border terrier called lily and my dog is Molly smile

Borders are lovely but feisty

Choose a two syllable name, its easier for the dog to hear, they might miss the first syllable.

I have a 7 year old male bt. He is the love of my life.

Tilly
Pippa
Mango
Poppy
Harley
Holly
Coby

My friend's border terrier is called Chutney, and I have heard of one called Crumble which I think is cute.

So in that vein I'd suggest
Cookie
Brandy
Pepper
Olive
Biscuit

I work in a veterinary practice and every female dog is called some variation of Poppy/Milly/Daisy/Tilly/Lily/Ruby/Molly/Betty. Therefore I offer:

Earwig
Humbug
Waffles
Twiggy
Tulip
Pumpkin
Crackle
Rowan
Sweetpea
Lilac
Kipper
Heather

Tessa is good for a terrier. You need something short and distinctive for when you are desperately trying to recall them from chasing small creatures into thickets.

Bridget is a great name, I agree with villainousbroodmare
