A pup by any other name would smell as sweet. Alphonso? Barangaroo? Circe? Or maybe one of the great old standards like Max or Coco? Naming your new pup can be an exercise in creativity, or involve just waiting for the right name to suit the image and personality of your new Best Friend.
So where to start? Maybe you already had a name before you even had the dog, Or maybe you are waiting for clues and prompts from your first days together (typical are Puddles, Sniffy, or Snuggles).
Across our three Dogdayz sites we see a lot of dogs, a lot of names – many of them the reassuringly familiar (though never a Fido, and rarely a Spot or Rex) – and also the more exotic.
