    Default Puppy names!

    OK, I'm trying to think of a name for my pup.

    My current possibilities are
    Gem/Gemma
    Pippa
    Kira/ Kara

    I'd also love something that means flame/fire/ruby/red- you get the idea, but NOT Ginger. And 'Ruby' is a no because I find R sounds awkward at the beginning of a word. Same problem with S, Sh/Ch, and D sounds. T I can cope with. In fact, no 's' at all! Other languages, nicknames etc are fine.

    Anyone think of names that sound suitably doggy that fit those parameters?

    is it a girl puppy or boy? (I'm thinking girl but want to confirm).

    A few names I had in mind for Lucky:

    Copper
    Penny
    Pumpkin Spice

    Just ideas but they do reference the color.

    Good luck. Isn't it fun naming a new baby!!!???

    They are all lovely names.

    The only suggestion I can think of is Rua, which is red-haired in Irish. My friends cat is called rua and is lovely! Sorry that's not much help though...

    I know you don't want any names that start with a "S" but if my darling little Ruby Male had been a Female I would of definetely called her

    "SASSY"

    Just so fitting for the red headed personality.

    In the meantime I will see what else I come up with.

    Flint - quartz that produces a spark of fire when struck by steel

    Tandie - from the Old Norse term "tandr", meaning "fire."

    Aideen (Aiden) - Little fire, Celtic/Gaelic

    Nuria - God's Fire, Hebrew

    My personal favorite :
    Keegan - Small and fiery, bright flame Celtic/Gaelic (pronounced key-gan)


    Holly - b/c the plant has red berries

    Claret - a red wine

    Hannah - no reason - I just like it!!!

    Am keeping them on file in case I ever get a ruby.

    Like the claret one.

    Actually, I like the idea of an Irish name. I saw Aithne/eithne (sp) as meaning 'fiery', i think, but pronunciation???

    On the list so far I like

    Penny
    Claret
    Tandie

    Holly- already got one! One friend suggested naming the pupply 'Ivy' hummmm Always makes me think of 'poison Ivy' from Coronation Street!

    Also have

    Aba which means 'born on Thursday' in some lingo- forget which. The pup was, and it could be abbreviated (!) as Abbie..

    Keep 'em coming!
