    We are also looking forward to a black and tan boy puppy in December and had 2 names picked out ; Harry and Alfie. When we went to meet the pups it was obvious he was a Harry. Maybe you could keep a short list in mind when you visit and see which name "fits". Also, I've been trying out names around the house to see what feels right to call out. I reckon Wesley would sound great. We also liked : Dylan and Finn. I look forward to seeing a pic of your new pup and will definitely post one of Harry. Good luck. Maggie

    There's an advert for insurance with a bulldog called Winston or Churchill, I think. Forget which. Apparently when kids are asked who Winston Churchill was, they've been known to reply "He's the dog off the telly, Miss." H'mmm. Then again, I remember the arguments I got into with a GCSE class who couldn't understand that a real life Egyptian priest/healer named Imhotep was NOT the guy from the Mummy films. That was fun.


    What about Sydney? Isn't that one of the guys from 'Tale of Two Cities'? "It is a far, far better thing I do now.." bla bla. Never read the thing. I rather like Darcy and Blake. They're different, but not to the point where you'd cringe when screaming it across the park

    I like Wesley and Winston. But my next male cavy will be called Hamish. My friend always calls Jeremy Rodney, Because she thinks he looks like a Rodney.

    What's wrong with Geoffrey?

    Of course, we have a Beauregard and an Elvis... AND named the female Saint Miss Kitty...so pretty much anything goes for us.

    Nisha, most of those don't strike me as English at all. Are you refering to names of English people in Australia ? Grover (from Grosvenor-pronounced Grover) reminds me of the character iin the Muppets, but of course is the family name of the nobility connnected with Chester.

    I know of a tri cavalier called Sidney and it suits him. he's a bit of a lad.

    Stuart/Stewart is interesting.

    King David I of scotland rewarded a knight by calling him Grand or High Steward of Scotland. This got corrupted to Stewart and eventually someone of that name married into the royal line and it became their surname. (Prince Charles is the present High steward of Scotland)

    As there is no w in the French language, Mary Queen of Scots, who , of course lived there, became Mary Stuart.

    Since then both spellings have become first names, too.

    nonono...they arent just from ppl in Aus..they are originally English names but i dont think they are the "old" ones as such....when i was picking names for my two i also tried out the ones from different countries, cultures etc..and i just dug up my list with English ones and typed them up..but i wasnt specifically looking for 'old english' names so yeah ...im sorry..i probably shouldnt have put them up because of that sorry..

    but i was looking on a site and found one with heaps of "old" english names for boys (humans babies but same same)...maybe you'd want to check it out they have pages of old eng names

    Wow, that's a great list Nisha, thanks!!!
    When I said I wanted old English names I didn't have a particular 'era' or anything in mind. We're not fussy... we just wanted something kind of old fashioned and unusual. I really liked your suggestions

    I think English (as in English language) names/words are running out for breeders' / exhibitors' affixes. Someone on another board had lots and lots refused, because they were taken or too similar to others. Eventually, she had to resort to a site giving Hindu names, choosing the Hindu version of what she wanted in English. This was accepted first time.
