Names I'd like to never hear again*

Postby Amie » Fri Aug 19, 2011 8:54 am

Riley
Bailey (these two always come with someone who's irritated you didn't know which gender their fluffy dog was)
Diesel
Dozer
Midnight
Rocky









* NO insult intended for those with dogs of these names... There's nothing wrong with the actual names, they just get seen a LOT in shelters!

Pit bulls named King are too frequent... Hmmm

And I agree, I'm not a fan of the name Buddy. (Ironically I have a dog named Buddy..... Yes I dislike his name. lol )

Lucky
Jack Russels named Jack


I should have more but my mind has gone blank!

The people at the Humane Society I used to volunteer at come up with the most crazy names for the dogs there and sometimes I am like "Are you serious?".

Here are a few that I dislike and wish to never hear again:
Zippo(for a dog that had been burned...)
Chimpo
Scrimp
Hello Kitty
Lady Gaga
Horatius(I can not even pronounce his half the time)
Uncle Rico
Brownie
Belladonna
Shelby Angel
Milkshake
Fuddle
Splenda
Jewel
Honeysuckle
Cowboy
Aerosmith
Bullwinkle

I do think it's funny by breed, pit bulls are always Diesel or Tank or Blue, on the Great Dane forum I'm on there's a lot of Apollos and Titans. The dog we just adopted was called Honey by the shelter and we couldn't stand that.

Since I have not been around too many PitBull Rescue dogs I'm not sure what a typical name might be, but as far as Basset Hounds go... If I never see another Chloe again it will be too soon. In our house we had no less than 5 over the years. Really??

AND in my house, we have 'owned' 2 Jasmine dogs. Really??? As if there is not another female dog name that would work?

What's funny is, right after we got Capone I joined PBF. It was at this point that the board has had several. How was I to know???? :dunno:

Then, it has become apparent that everyone is now naming their dogs Hannah This was my great-grandmothers name. I always thought of it as sacred!

My dad's dog is Trixie, his girlfriend's dog was Angel and we have Jasmine - The huge family joke is that between us we have a trio of stripper dogs.
As for Cowboy. That is a GREAT name for a low lumbering, slow meandering Basset




(as someone stated before, appologies if 'your' name falls within this post ;)

Cooper.


My cousin just got engaged to a Cooper... every time I hear the name.. I think of a dog - golden retriever.

Now... on the other hand, the name Deno. I have seen 1 other dog named Deno (spelled that way) and 1 spelled Dino on the boards. I've actually met more people with the name Dino... I might be biased, but I love that name lol

The one dog named Deno actually looked like my Deno. The owner is the same age as myself.. and she spells her name Candice the same way as me. WEIRD.
