People who send in their dogs' names often include a little note to say how the dog got it's name.  Here's a selection of the comments we've been sent on some of the names.


Two Names sent in the survey:
Fergus the Bogeyman ..boy
Dixter (otherwise known as Fatso)...boy
A bit of horticultural knowledge on the names ...Great Dixter is a beautiful garden
in Southern England and Fergus is the Head Gardener there.

Gem (Girl) It took me a few days to find a name for her, but one day I looked and
her and said (because she was so lovely) you really are a little gem aren't you. So
it stuck.

Angela Bibb:

Dr Mhairi Coyle:
Chaka - apparently King of the Zulus - kind of suits him, he's a terrier/collie x who thinks he's king of the house!

Daun "The Dogs' Maid":
I have Australian Shepherds and I like to use bible names.  One of the litter themes for a litter of pups was Airline pilots (or a facsimile) I chose Jedidiah for the girl I got and we call her JEDI  to me it is the ultimate pilot from Star Wars I stayed with the theme and still used the bible Jedidiah was the name given to Solomon and it means "Beloved of the Lord".  another I used is Zachariah which is a book of the bible. Another litter was Songs by a chosen artist and so I used Jeramiah. A very long time ago I had a litter of mutt pups and named them all for the constellations of the stars.  This is a fun list and I love naming  recently we had a litter and they used movies as their theme.  "Gone with the Wind"  call name Scarlet and "Take the Lead" call name Disco.

Carol (on seeing I had a names page on the site):
This is rich for someone who named my gleanies Hinge and Bracket!
Pat explains:  Gleanies are the Cornish way of describing guinea fowl, and yes I am guilty of naming Carol's guinea fowl Hinge and Bracket.  Some of you might even be old enough to remember the double act, aka George Logan and Patrick Fyffe.
