Name suggestions

We'll got a male puppy in the next few days. He and his brother were dumped on a mountain area, rescued by a couple and we adopted him from them.

We are looking for a name suggestions for this sweet heart.

Currently, he's called 弟弟 (didi) which means "younger brother", we would like a different name for him.

TIA.

Help me name my dog

We (family of four) are getting this beautiful girl. She is a boxer / Great Pyrenees mix. So she is likely to grow tall and lanky. Her coat is white but she is covered in spots “below” her white fur. She has a markings around one eye that looks like trashy eye shadow. Right now she’s very docile and somewhat timid. We tend to lean towards non-human names, but are wide open. Leaders right now are: Zero, Cruella, Jenny, and Maxine.

Stumped, need help for our new Golden Retriever pup

We’ve been wrestling for a whole week now. Some names I like are Reggie, Amos, and Wally (I tend toward human names, but this is by no means a requirement—a close candidate is Burger).

Ideally we want to capture sweet and loyal, but also hope to encode some of his goofiness as well. For reference, he’s a floppy little guy; I’m not sure he has any bones.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Help me name my girl

NAMED: Kismet

Wife came up with this one, I was looking at rescues online and saw her, but my wife wasn’t sure she was ready so soon following the passing of our 13 year old. Then she went into work, she’s a vet tech at a rescue surgery center, and low and behold that litter was in to be spayed. After playing with them a bit pre-surgery she decided this was the universe telling her something.

We didn’t come up with the name until reading all of the suggestions. For a time Darla was looking good, thank you nannydiary

We adopted this beautiful girls from Almost There Rescue - A Mom and Pup Rescue and I’m struggling to name her. Her rescue name was Otter, she was from a litter themed on swamp critters. Normally I try to let my dogs name themselves, but with her it’s been very difficult. So far the names I’ve come up with just don’t ring true to my ear. So as you do in modern times I‘m turning to the internet and reddit for help.
