i’m currently awaiting the arrival of my first dogue de bordeaux female puppy, i cannot decide on a name, i want something that represents the breed of dog for example, Zeus or Hooch would be ideal names for a male but im struggling to come up with something similar sounding for a female. I like Nonook and Saigon but my husband doesnt – he came up with Tilly! – which with no offence to people to have a dog called that but i want something unusal and different, tilly just doesnt suit a Dogue. Please help.September 26, 2008 at 10:53 pm #69514IzzieMember

Marcatrude – which according to that link is an ancient feminine French name. 🙂September 27, 2008 at 6:27 am #69517**mandy+niko**Member

how about Nikora or Kora?September 27, 2008 at 8:30 am #69521Prem2PramMember
How about Hestia – Very little is known about this serene, peaceful goddess other than she was the sister of Zeus and both Poseidon and Apollo sought her hand in marriage.September 27, 2008 at 10:21 am #69522AnonymousGuest
Merlot, Sauvignon, Médoc, are wines from the Bordeaux region. I quite like Merlot or Medoc. ;DSeptember 27, 2008 at 11:25 am #69523AnonymousGuest
mmmmm I know a Taz, a Honey and a Dakota, you need something thats not going to be too much of mouthful, remember you’ll be calling it out across parks and fields so you dont want it to be too wierd either 😉September 27, 2008 at 12:27 pm #69524AnonymousGuest
I shout Tallulah and Hermione! What’s wrong with those????? :butt: :yes: ;DSeptember 27, 2008 at 1:18 pm #69525AnonymousGuest
hooch and dakota are corny american to me
I like Hestia – tia for short ?
or if you want somethink linked to heritage how about Ellie after Eleanor of Aquitaine (now known as Bordeaux). she sounds a good bet – wealthy and powerful and the mum of 2 english kings, and queen to a french and english king.
this is a description of her “Eleanor was extroverted, lively, intelligent, and strong willed” …. she could have entered “dog most like its owner” with this as this sounds DDB all over to me.

What about calling her Magentas, as this is the name of the B**ch that won the first Dog show in Paris at the Jardin d’ Acclimatation in 1863 and she was a douge de bordeauxSeptember 27, 2008 at 1:31 pm #69527AnonymousGuest
hehe – she could be “madge” for short !!
