Pup will be joining the family on 7th January but everyone’s so excited we’ve been discussing names already. I’m campaigning for Doris but am not met with a warm reception from the family. I’m a lover of the funny old woman, human names on dogs so any suggestions like that would be great

Names of various fire goddesses that also sound old ladyish: Hestia, Brigit, Vesta.
Or Thora ?

Or the Russian word for fox sounds a bit like Lisa, and the S. Gaelic word sounds like Shona.

Bridget is the same word, just evolved a bit.
It's good for a dog, and quite, er shoutable smile.
