Honestly. We have six children and did not ever fret so much about naming them!! We are picking up our new family member tomorrow, a black lab. We already have a yellow lab called Megan. Kids are all huge Harry Potter fans if that helps?? I like Kismet, nobody else is keen. I don't like names which overtly refer to colour like Sooty or Midnight (no idea why!!). Please put us out of our misery and give her a name! I'll put a photo up next but it's actually not great due to how dark she is but it might help!

Treacle I like your style! (Actually, Treacle isn't bad...!)

Bella. Italian for beautiful.

Siri? Not sure it's really a name (apart from the Apple thing!) but was trying to think of a female version of Sirius - for Sirius Black as she's a black lab.
She's divine whatever name you go with.

I know its a girl but how cool would it be to be in the park shouting,
"Hey Duggee"
You could even say to your kids, a different t kid each day,
"Tommy? Isn't it time for?"

You know it makes sense.

Luna (lovegood)
Fleur (delacour)
Bella (bellatrix lastrange)

Or Halainn which is Gaelic. It sounds nice than it looks. Or Dubh which is black (sounds like Doo) but this may sound silly depending on where you live. Quite acceptable in the NW Scottish Highlands!

Oooh hadn't thought of Tonks! It's a shame because the only black dog reference we can find in Potter is the Grim (Grimm?) which is perhaps not the best name....

My personal favourites are Tonks and Luna!
Luna is a stab towards the moon which is night which is dark IYSWIM

Well you could use Padfoot or Snuffles then? (Desparately clinging onto Sirius black dog theme grin)

thebakerwithboobs Sun 12-Feb-17 23:22:47

Pops it's a great thought! I shall be sharing all suggestions over breakfast with the boys and hoping it doesn't come to pulling something out of a hat! Three of the boys suggested Niffler (from Fantastic Beasts) but although it's a very cute little creature it's not a very cute name really...this is so hard! I'm laughing at how stressed I am by the whole thing!

thebakerwithboobs Sun 12-Feb-17 23:23:10

Ps we have a tortoise called Padfoot....

Rowena - as in ravenclaw, cos she'll have black claws so its a HP name which fits but the black part is cryptic.grin
