We just picked out a female yellow labrador retriever puppy for our son. She has a reddish color to her coat and she is smaller than her brothers and sisters. I would just like help picking out an AKC name for her. I really wanted my three year old son to pick out her name and he has insisted on Rocket. It is not really a female name so I was just trying to be creative in the way that I could incorporate Rocket into her AKC name. We thought that maybe we could call her Roxie for short. Any suggestions?
Roxie sounds like a good compromise. Did you get her from a breeder? I ask because I'm a little confused as to why you would be looking for an "AKC" name for her, since they should have their registered names before they leave the breeder. Is it a "home" name that you are looking for?
Thanks for the clarification on the name given by the breeder comment. This was news to me that my dog had to be given a name by the breeder. I am not sure that I will have to include the breeder's name either but to be honest I didn't ask. I just assumed that kind of thing would come up when I pick up the puppy in about three weeks and get the registration forms. I guess what I am asking is for a unique name to give the dog with Rocket in it that I can register her under.
Okay everyone in case you care I have come up with the name of our new family member. If you care- let me know what you think please.
Bo's Little Miss Irish Rocket
Bo's - The Sire of the litter is Bojangles Dance of Gunner Rose (Bo) Little - Because she is the smallest in the litter (right now of course) Miss - The Dam of the litter is Miss Misty Coleman Hunt (Misty) Irish - She was born on St. Patrick's Day (Patrick is also my son's middle name) Rocket - I have to include my son's name choice of course.
And we are still going to call her Roxie for short.
Very unique choice! I like it! Enjoy the pup to the fullest!(even when you really have to try! LoL)
Our breeder includes their name in the registered names of their litters. The litter our pup was from was a litter of 5 girls, so they decided to name them after Spice Girls songs. We got to choose the song name for her. I don't really like the Spice Girls so it didn't really matter to me what her registered name was, but I eventually picked one. Our pup's registered name is Osiris "Viva Forever(song)", and we named her Piper. The previous litter was named after super heroes.
