Arrow Name That Puppy! * * (he's here!)

At the request of my son, I am starting a new post to help name the puppy. We won't get him for another week or so (probably) and maybe his personality will give a clue later, but my son wanted to ask the Curlies!

Here he is, currently called Dragonfly (only because the litter was all named after bugs, they run out of names) --


Info: http://www.smileydogrescue.org/bluew...ls.asp?id=3837


Names we have thought of:

Kona
Cocoa
Mocha
Maui
Draco
Drago
Dragon
Basil (majestic, kingly)
Duncan
Almond
Java
Shadow
Radar (the ears!)
Merlin


OK, add your name suggestions! Remember he's a Boy. Go!

Humphrey.

No idea why, but that's what I thought when I saw him.

He's got some blue merle coloring. I'd call him Blue.

From your list I think Radar suits him. I love all the serious, majestic, meaningful names, but those eyes make me think he is going to be NONE of those things. I think he is going to be fun and funny and silly. And I mean that all in a very positive way! I think he will be an awesome dog.

I would name him BUG because I think it suits him (and also as an homage to his 'birth' name, which I think was adorable.)

He has such a sweet, innocent face, so a big-tough-guy name doesn't sound right for him.

I like Radar. Very cute! (And Radar from MASH - who grew up next door to my mom - had that sweet and innocent thing going on!)

But is it? I thought blue merle was black and gray. He is black and brown. But merle did come to mind when I saw his color too.

If forgot to add Merlin to the list of names, due to his coloring.


Here's his mom, she got adopted already. He looks the most like her of the litter, but he has more brown. http://www.smileydogrescue.org/bluew...ls.asp?id=3813

Blue merle is a black or red-brown base, with gray or reddish patches. He looks blue merle to me.

I like Merlin, and also Jeep's suggestion of Bug, to salute his littername of Dragonfly.

Brindle is on the money.. ..

Radar is my top choice without knowing the dog..

Also when picking names for a dog that has even a hint of pit appearance you want something manly without being intimidating. I have a feeling that he will run through things like a diesel truck but diesel would be a bit much

Radar works for me..
