Name for new greyhound

Just about to get number 6, he's only young, (not yet 4), and doesn't know his name at all. So I feel fine changing it.

The others (mostly), have names associated with gemstones. Can you think of a gem / rock inspired name that fits a young black greyhound?

Do you still have the other 5?!

Weirdly before I read anything other than your title I was going to suggest Pearl. Love

Flint? Although seems a bit hard (if you’ll pardon the pun grin)

Jasper? (My favourite)

I love greyhounds

Obsidian ( Obby for short)
Black Sapphire is very rare and precious

Love you lot!

Totally outing for anyone who does know me, but I already have a Jet, Jasper and Amber. Love flint, also love pearl, but is it a bit girly perhaps?

Is obsidian too much?

Ebony and Onyx are great as well. He's currently called Tim, and it just doesn't fit 😄

Cross post on obsidian, I love it.

Yes we still have the other 5, I find greyhounds very addictive 😄

DH is liking Flint, so maybe that's what I go for on the basis that I need him to buy into getting a number 6.....

I want 6 greyhounds. I don’t even have one (yet) waaaah!!

Please update with a photo when he comes home

I like Flint, and you could use Flinny for yelling purposes.
Am v impressed that you have 5 greys and still find somewhere to sit! I just have the two lurchers, but by the time the cat has half a sofa, dh and I are squeezing into spaces...

hahahaIdontgetit Sat 24-Feb-18 17:45:51

CMOT don't tell anyone, I know it's frowned on, but my dogs don't go on the sofas!

It's true (we have had to buy memory foam mattresses for the floor). grin
