New arrival landing Sunday shortlist is :
Rocky Ronnie Stanley Aloysious and Rupert
He follows in big paw prints of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart who met an untimely tragic death and I wasn’t going to get another beast so soon.
However best laid plans etc
Please hit me with your ideas thank you

I'm loving Stanley!

How about Teaser?! or Elton

He's absolutely gorgeous [we need a heart emoji]

Please call him Aloysious! Regardless of their real names my dad would call our family dogs Aloysious (and the the daft mutts would come to him!) Plus he looks like a teddy bear.

Apparently Rocky is a very popular name for dogs so you might want to choose one of the others - just in case Rocky the Rottweiler bounds over when you call.😜

When I went to open this thread the one below was titled 'Roger' so that's what I think he should be called.

Stanley Aloysious Surname
All dogs should have an over the top middle name.

He looks like a Rufus

TitsalinaBumSquash Thu 27-Sep-18 08:42:55

He's obviously a Stanley. 😊

Looks like a Hugo to me.

Might be asking for trouble unless he's neutered Thegirlonthelanding.

<literally just here for the photos>

I'd go Stanley though. Suits him.

P.s he's lovely!

Ahhhh thank you everyone ! It’s still undecided I’ll update when he’s home x

Since you used to have a Wolfgang, how about a Wagner? You have to shout it to see the effect: "WAGNER!!!" I think it works...

Or perhaps Bach, or better still, Offenbach.

Next door neighbour had a succession of dogs similar to yours, all called Keats. I'm quite partial to a Percy Bysshe Shelley, then you have three to choose from!

Thank golly it’s not just me - have been composing a thread in my head for days ‘is it normal to give my pup a middle name’ grin

Your pup is going to spend their life spelling Aloysious out to people ;) Tbh I'd only come across the Aloysius spelling before.

I do rather like Stanley Aloysious though!
