Finally, after a long long wait, we are getting a dog and I am beyond excitement.

It is a little Border Collie boy and I am totally in love. We get him in January.

But I need a name. We met his Mum and Dad (and Granny) and all were gorgeous - Dad is big and fluffy and really laid back. So I'm imagining our wee boy is going to turn into quite a big thing.

Here are the maybe names so far (please don't laugh)


Any other suggestions welcomed.

(As this is a very outing list - I have been running some ideas by my friends/colleagues - I have name changed)

So cute, what a gorgeous boy. I really like Bo, I think it suits him. Also you are going to be shouting his name a lot when on walks so I say one syllable names are easier to holler!

I like Ivor and Bo. He’s gorgeous!

Can I add Dill into the mix? I knew an incredible border collie called Dill. They are amazing dogs - have a wonderful life together!

Is his daddy called chewey by any chance?

I really like Moss. I love nature names on collies.
He is beautiful.

Thank you all for commenting! I'm even more excited now. Almost bouncing.....

I see Roo has no votes - at the risk of sounding pretentious, it is meant to be Ruadh which is Scottish Gaelic for red (kind of). I am Scottish and like the connection.

I'm swaying between most of them though I think Moss and Wookie are unlikely.

Winky - Moss is there because of the nature link and also because he's our favourite character in IT Crowd!

Magnus, without a doubt (though Gus is good also )

Yes another vote for Magnus from me as well.

Thank you everyone! I do like Denzel!

Magnus is looking like the winner, though now my 10 year old DS is moaning about it.

Angus (which I thought was the one he didn't like) is apparently better.

So if we can't persuade him to like Magnus, what about Angus?

Angus is great , but how about just Gus?

SoftSheen Wed 28-Nov-18 21:06:40

How about Ivo?

Also think Reggie is a great name.
He’s adorable OP.
