Naming is hard, and when it comes to my own dogs it is much harder. With a rescue it seems easier as I won't have to live with the name for more than a few weeks so it doesn't matter.
Wicca's name was picked out before I brought her home. I wanted a "Magical" name and after searching I came across Wicca. It is perfect, and suits her to a T- she is very witchy :o)
Sam was named when I got him and I couldn't think of anything to call him! I had thought of Spencer as I really like the name but he was Sam through and through.
Vito was Jack when I first got him, and stayed Jack for a while until I realised just how many dogs, and people there are named Jack. So Jack had to go. Vito is the perfect name for him.
Boone was Blair- and well, that had to go for a few reasons- reason #1: I didn't like the name. It was weird. (no offence if you know someone with that name, or like the name)
reason #2: he needed a new start, what better way than a new name! I like the name Boone and had it on my list from way back when
and now I want to get names ready so that when I see my puppy I will just know her name. I want it to be an unusual name, one that is easy to say and pronounce. I have been looking up names by searching meanings, and I have been looking for names that are still with the "magical" type theme.
Here is my list so far:
Notes: Roman version of Greek goddess Hera, goddess of marriage, retribution, fairplay, fiery and temperamental
Notes: Replaced Gaea, later adopted the characteristics of Cybele.
Female, color - gold, Animal - none
Notes: Goddess of Fire, keeper of the sacred flame.
and other magical names...
Nissa- friendly elf or fairy
Brew- (as in witches)
and other non-witchy names I like:
Micah (can't use with Wicca as I think it sounds too similar)
Bryna "strength with virtue"
Cita (Latin) [mf] "happy" " the fast one"
Anyway, those are on my list so far, it seems I find a new one every few days that i like and add to my list so it grows and changes a lot...
