We can’t decide on a name for our new puppy. Can you help us decide from our shortlist:


Which is your favorite?

I like Marcel - not often you come across a dog called Marcel smile

Without a pic op I don't believe you even have a puppy.......

Furry - Marcel's a bit of a favourite, the puppy's a French Bulldog so I thought a French name might be nice. Also like Gaston for that reason.

Santa - we don't actually have a puppy at the moment, we collect him in a couple of weeks but want to have a name ready. Promise to post a pic when he's arrived smile

Rolo's a great name, Mardy! Definitely a contender for our dog's name.

Floyd or Frank would be my options for a Frenchie

Love the name Brodie!

BitOfFun Thu 08-Nov-18 16:07:16

Picture first, or we won't help!

BitOfFun Thu 08-Nov-18 16:08:24

Oh darn, sorry, I've just seen that he's not here yet!

Gaston is fabulous. Or Marcel. Love the French theme.

Marcel. Rolo's very popular for a French Bulldog here so I'd avoid that.

puppyhasnoname Thu 08-Nov-18 17:08:41

Right, I think we've decided to stick with the French theme. I really like Marcel, but Gaston might also be back on the cards. It's so hard to choose!

Sorry can't post a pic yet but will definitely do so once he's been collected - along with his new name!

Riki is Fab!

For the French theme, how about Henri or Claude?

From your list I like Marcel best. Or you could go for Marceau grin.

You have to imagine calling it when he’s down the other end of the park. I like Frankie.

puppyhasnoname Thu 08-Nov-18 18:09:50

Henri and Claude are both fab. Not sure about using Claude though as my daughter's close friend who lives next door is also called Claude (Claudia) so might be a bit weird. Henri is good, or maybe Hector?

Good point alonglongway, I don't know how I'd feel about calling out for Gaston. I also worry it might end up getting shortened to Gassy.

Thanks for all the suggestions smile

But Gaston is so cute! And handsome . It's a great name.

Thanks for the suggestions. We're going to go with a French name and have narrowed down the final shortlist to:

Gaston (agreed BitOfFun, both cute AND handsome!)

Will post a pic when we've picked him up and decided on his name.
