We got a new puppy last night. He's a Great Dane and we're looking for names. 

 

Any suggestions guys? Here's me with the dog.

What a nice looking baby! I knew a Great Dane called "Ruler", the name suited his regal appearance and attitude as an adult. His owners called him "Roo" for short because as a puppy they thought his mom had had a dalliance with a kangaroo. That puppy never seemed to have all four paws on the ground at the same time!

My wife had fawn colored Danes for 20 years when she grew up in Louisiana. Of the several dozen names that I've heard, Tiny is my favorite. Up north, we had Newfies for 25 years. We used native American names for them. A black and white got named Charley Two Shirts

I hope that whatever his name, he has a long and happy life. Good Luck, Rick

pip squeak

 

 

If your going that route why not make it Chiisai. Means small in Japanese and is pronounced (chee-si) with the i sounding like eye.

Or Cooper as in Mini Cooper.

Naming a pet is so hard.
It has to fit like a comfy shirt or its never quite right.

We named our German Shepherd "Liberty" Libby for short. My suggestion, find something you hold dear and see if a derivation works.
I know you do jams. How about Jammer?
You get the concept. Good luck.

   YOU F%^&$#ER !!!!  that's what I call my dogs allot, especially when they get in the trash which they did today.  spread all over the house when I get home!!!  I agree with what was stated above, keep him for awhile and he will get his own name.  usually takes a few weeks but all my dogs have named themselves in one way or the other.
