I had a Lab named Jason. I named him that because he actually looked like A guy named Jason that I went to school with. It was an uncanny resemblance. Every Pet has a name and I'm sure you didn't just pull a name out of the clouds. So let's start this Discussion.

Our little pup! - Roxy being playful in mans pants while going to the bathroom.
We had our dog for 2 days before we settled completely on a name. We wanted to see what her personality was first and then decide on a name based on that. It wasn't easy, she was a little fireball with a stubborn will and enthusiasm. She was a little white fluff ball with attitude! So we needed a cute name that was strong. We settled on Roxy! The "R" sound gives it the strong sound and commanding attitude that we needed. See picture for our cute little girl.

Wow, that's cool I believe most people name their pets based on their personality. When I was just a boy I had a beagle. When he was a puppy he would always peek around corners before actually proceeding, So I named him peeky.

We had a wiener dog named Alfie when I was a kid, because he looked like that alien guy ALf. Right now I have a beagle named Squirt-R-Bug because she was the runt of her litter and just a little squirt. I have a black lab named Noodle because when he wags his tail his whole body wags with it like a wet noodle. I have a cat named Souie-climb-a-tree, named by my kids who wanted and "s" name and obviously, Souie likes to climb.

Wow those are really creative names. It's always fun to name your pets. It's amazing to see where the names came from.

When we got my dog, he was so small, I was actually worried the breeder gave him to us too soon. Anyway, a little dachshund like that needed a big name.. So we named him Hercules Wolfgang

I was drawn to your discussion because I love the name Jason and noticed it in your text *laugh* My family had two dogs named Moxie and Goldie. I wasn't personally responsible for namking either. Moxie may haev had his name before we got him, since I think that my father took him over from his brother's care when his brother was no longer in the position to keep a dog any longer. Goldie was named because of her lovely golden color. We have had other pets that I was more involved in the naming of, but they weren't dogs *laugh*

Cool!! I'm lovin how you just knew where I laugh. or is it like a teleprompter. "laugh" See what I mean, but honestly I love animals everyone thought jason was a weird name for a dog, but it was his name and as long as he liked it that was all that mattered.

I'm sorry to say that I don't have a dog, but if I did abd if it were female, I would call it Bessy. If it were a male dog, then I would call it Scooby (sounds goofy, doesn't it?)

See what I mean there are all sorts of ways to name your dog. Brown wasn't a hard name to come up with however it is highly effective. Gets the job done and it sounds cool
