    Haven’t seen this thread elsewhere, love asking people this:

    Toby was a Toby when we got him from the shelter, it suits him well!  The Tea Cosy bit we added when we realised we have to drink up fast when he’s around, lost of burned tongues cos he’s such an attention seeker he can’t let you enjoy a cuppa in peace!  ;D Right on cue here he is for a cuddle!

    Alex’s dog Mia was named after Uma Thurman’s character in Pulp Fiction.

    lol Foxy!! 😀 (Sweep reminds me of Blu when he was a pup! :D)

    Originally wanted Belle for Emmy but Pete’s pompey accent pronounced it ‘bowel’! 😮  Liked the Emily but wanted less syllables so it turned into Emmy!

    Blu coz it just suited him and I’ve always wanted a boy Blu! (and it’s our football team colour and Pete used to call me Blue when we first met, not sure why, think it’s a townie thing :-\) Spelt it like this just to be different! ;D

    Tam, breeder gave all her dogs Scottish pet names, he was suppose to be a bitch puppy but only one bitch in the litter already spoken for saw him and fell in love ;D
    If he was female the name was going to be Tanith ( The Devil rides out Dennis Wheatley)

    Willow, I called her Puddlepup at first before we decided on a proper name, she still answers to it ;D
    Willow, graceful, flowing slender, she looks more like she has been dragged through a hedge backwards most of the time ::)

    Loki is named after the norse god of mischief / trickster god…

    I like Norse mythological names…. When we get the next one it will probably be Norse god/ godess themed  😀

    Merlin & Griffon were named after the V12 Rolls Royce Spitfire engines and Holley was already called Holly when we got her, we just changed the spelling to Holley as there is a company called Holley Carburretors so we thought, well, keep up the theme  ::)

    My Terveuren i called Wyatt because of a friends son who is/was a very cool kid.

    sadie was originally called Marcie at the breeder. The breeder always names the pups after a theme..as in characters from the tv show Cheers or in Sadies case all names from the comic strip Peanuts (Charlie Brown) .    We went through a number of possibilities before deciding on Sadie, we didn’t like Marcie and since she didn’t really know it , it was no problem to change.  It suits her well…although ‘dumbass’ suits her sometimes too  😀
