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.....

BellMcEnd Sat 24-Feb-18 13:48:45

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

Great names tatty, he's black with a flash of white on his stomach. 🐾💗

We've gone with Silver, it suits him. He's home now, I'm just trying to get a good photo of him...
