LOL, Trinity! My grandmother bought a sheltie when we were kids. She said he needed a regal name because he had a great lineage. I don't even remember the hoity toity name she tried to give him, but mom started calling him Sam. And that's what stuck.

shelties are great dogs! So smart.

Years ago, my cousins bought a dog and picked out the name Kai before they brought him home.

Kai was a sheltie, and just about the most aristocratic little dogger you can imagine. In no time flat, his name was altered to Kaiford Alexander Lastname (the family surname), since it sounded much more regal than plain old Kai.

I agree with the group. You need to wait until you have your pup home so he can tell you what he wants to be named.

the pit mix we had for a few months was Zoey. She was so sweet! I really miss her.

can't wait to see pics of your girl.

I'm another one who wants a name to match the personality. Obie was called Buster by his first family. But that didn't fit him. He's definitely an Obie.

Jack was called Sader. The school mascot where he was abandoned was the Crusaders. We didn't like that name, so we went with Blackjack. Which has become Jack.

I thought Misha generally referred to the male gender in Russian? I vote Sasha, or how about Gato? How about Marilyn, as in Monroe? Arn't Pit Bulls big with curves?

If you believe you can, or can not, either way you are correct.

I like Misha. My german shepard/ husky mix is named Neko (japanese for cat!) the woman I rescued him from had renamed him Feefee emoticon

I may not be there yet but I'm closer than I was yesterday.

I got tired of starting over and working back to where I was, so I have stopped giving up!

I always named my pets based on their personality. A friend of mine has a pit bull mix that is all black. Her name is Baby. It kind of softens people's response to her.

I would have to see her. The last 2 animals we got didn't get their names for a week or 2 before they got their names. I picked their names by their personalities.

Initial Goals:
1. Get back into my previous weight loss jeans.

2. Meet my fiber requirements 5 days a week.

Now that I am finally exercising for the first time in 23 years I have decided to set these weekly exercise goals.

1. Walk or go to the gym 3 - 4 days a week.
2. Strength training 2 - 3 times a week

"Misha" because it has a harder accent on pronunciation so when trying to get her attention it'll help her hear the tone of your voice better.

@Fatbane: nice job reading JD's post.....

I like Sasha.

I always find it difficult to pick without having seen the puppy/dog. I usually try to pick something that suits the dog's appearance or personality. Our first Great Pyrennes (very large dog with long white, wavy fur) was Hagrid, because he was a friendly, hairy giant. The two Pyrs we have right now are Samson (large and gets his strength from his hair) and Nanuk (the Inuit word for polar bear).

Whatever you pick, remember it has to be something you are comfortable calling out loud from the back door, in the park, etc.

So I made this reply on a thread yesterday
"Soooo we got our puppy adopted today! Shes a 2 month old pitbull mix. Super friendly!

We can't bring her home for a few days cause shes being fixed. It will be anywhere from 1 to 4 days.

The regular dogs/puppy cost was $50 but she was marked down to $25! What a steal! (her being marked down makes me wonder if she was going to be put to sleep)

Im a mom now! And my baby is so cute, as soon as I get her home I will post a picture!

Annnnnnnnd we saved her cause I went to a kill shelter! Im just not sure how long she has left if we didnt get her. "




Now we are needing a name for our baby I have this list so far
Misha
Sasha
Ivy
Athena
Mya
Remi

I am leaning towards Sasha or Misha. Does anyone else have a name they want to share for my list?
