    We had a chalk board and whenever we thought of a name we put it up o n the board. Just looking at it regularly helped. Sometimes a name that originally seemed really cool got less cool the more we looked at it - so it would get erased.

    I was considering a pup a while ago and I wanted to name him Willow...Will for short....I love nature names.
    The boy I'm considering now is 9 months..so I really shouldn't change his name, right? It's Connor.

    They quickly learn a new name. A 'name' to them is a wod they know means they should look to you and means something is happening that involves them. Mine also respond in the same way to 'treats' or 'look'...

    Leo's name was Gizmo (though the breeder hated it -- his daughter chose it and he was her dog!). I chose a name I liked and that was close-ish to Gizmo -- same ending sound. He was responding to Leo within days.

    I've fostered pound dogs -- we give them names to identify them and give them some personality instead of a number -- and they respond very quickly to a new name. It is like learning a new command for them, they learn quickly that the word means some sort of attention from you.
