    Default Family Dispute!

    My oldest named our lab some 15 yrs ago; Jessie. She was named after (those of you that are moms to teen girls) Jessica of the Sweet Valley Twin book series. How I hated that name - we compromised on Jessie.

    So come forward and daughter number 2 claimed the right to pet number 2. Kody was chosen before we knew if it was a boy/girl. Personally Kody sounds like a boy name to me, but a promis is a promise. She chose it because Kody is a rare female spelling for Cody meaning pillow - cavs are lap dogs. BUT now after buying the name tag I am informed perhaps she likes the spelling Kodee! So which spelling do you like? I'm having a hard enough time remember to say she cause Kody reminds me of a boy, so this is just adding fuel to the fire having a weird spelling for me!

    Maybe Mom should pick the name and the spelling. ;D

    nah, I let the first daughter get her way, I concede the 2nd should get to name this one. But perhaps I will put my foot down on the spelling - Kodee is weird I think! The breeder named her Hannah, I actually really like it and she looks like it (so I will just whisper it to her)

    I like Kody. Give your daughter the option of calling her Kody (spelled the way you want) or Hannah. That should sort the problem out as either way you will be getting what you want!

    I prefer Hannah. Some of my dogs ended up being named after cartoon hero's because of my kids. And I also know of many males called Kody. With a K and a C. Maybe if you get a cat she could name that? I am sure whatever you decide will be fine and it wont make any difference to how much you love your furbaby.

    yeah i definitely like the spelling "Kody" better than "Kodee"...Hannah's a cute name maybe she will go for it but i dont know..(have you given her the option)..personally i prefer Kody to Hannah but i still think theyre both cute...

    i like Casshon's idea! try that!

    I don't know what your legal position re tags is, over there, but here it's not recommended to put the dog's name on the tag, as it gives any potential thief an advantage. If you don't have to have the name on the tag, that lets you off the hook.

    I can understand where your daughter is coming from; when we got Rudee I spelled her name thus because it is a name usually reserved for boys (Rudy) so I changed it to suit a girl. It's a bit like Fiancé and Fiancée, if you get my drift.

    I picked my last dogs name, Sophie, and the kids hated it. They never got used to it. This time, I started suggesting names, Dylan was only the 2nd and my son liked that. After the fuss over the first dogs name, I decided it's only right that we all agreed. I do think on the other hand, that whoever pays for the dog gets the deciding vote!!!

    Might I suggest you pick a few names and agree on one you all like.

    I am all about orginality... I like Kodee...

    I used to nanny a little girl named Lexee and her mom was Brandee. When we were thinking about what to name Cicero, alot of our girl names that ended in "y" I changed to "ee" to make it original.

    Examples:

    Tillee
    Samee
    Eydiee
    [B][COLOR=yellowgreen]We[/COLOR] [COLOR=plum]Love [/COLOR][COLOR=yellowgreen]Cicero[/COLOR]![/B]
    [B][COLOR=yellowgreen]"Suum Cuique"[/COLOR][/B]
