    I wanted to call Edgar “Sausage” but the breeder just said nothing and raised her eyebrow at me. And she’s a bit scary so I had a reconsider.

    I remember absolutely years ago some family friends had an accidental littler (mongrel + mongrel) and got all the pups sent out to happy homes apart from the runt which they kept and called “Ugly Bloke”.

    Rescued a beagle from a hunt pack her name was Lilter. The most unusual I have had in the kennels was a pointer names Fraoch which is Gaelic for Heather. (Twas a boy ).

    Ghost thread you've bumped up (4yrs old!) but I've just had lunch with my Godmother who told me when she was a child one of their cats was called Square!

    I have a bitch named Kitasoo - never met another (it is the name of a Canadian First Nations group - I had just been to Canada)

    Boz, my Cocker, is named after Charles Dickens, it is his original pen name.

    I know it's an old thread but what a good one. I have never met another Timber. Although that might be because people run away when I call for him in the woods.

    We had a similar thing...
    The breeder wanted us to call Hazel "Diva", because that's her pedigree name and she thought it suited her as it was a "nice, strong name that shows power"...

    Had I not been stuck on Hazel(which the breeder insisted wasn't strong enough for her), I probably would have reconsidered and backed down :rolleyes:
    Hazel's breeder was also pretty intimidating.

    Have yet to meet another Peggy in real life, doesn’t seem to be a popular dog name but everyone says it suits her. But I do think snchauzers suit old fashioned human names.

    Ha, I want a black Shitzu and want to call him Sossidge, my husband has said no, I can't think why :D

    My childhood dog was called Crumpet and the cat was called Paleface, I think someone on here had a Crumpet but I haven't heard of many and never heard of a Paleface, I also have never met another Hilde, but I have met a Hector who was a whippety type dog.
