Everyone seemed to help Mia out so much with her dog-naming dillema, so I thought I would pick your brains, too!

I need a name for our new Chihuahua. I don't want to name him anything Mexican-related. I think those names are cute but everyone I know who has a Chi named it Taco or Peso or something...and I want something different! I also want a name that is two-syllables long. I read that commands should be one syllable (sit!) and names should be two (Rover)so the dog can differentiate between them. Don't know if that is true or not but I'll try it and see if it works. :D

Anyway, the names I kind of like right now are:

Bosco - I am a huge Seinfeld fan, and there was an episode where this word was brought up (It was George's ATM password).

Fonzy - I am not a fan of "The Fonz" but I think the name is cute.

Pongo - I think that name is sweet, but everyone made fun of me when I mentioned it. :cry:

Any ideas for a neat boy name? I'm certainly open for suggestions!

Maybe this wasn't such a good idea after all -- There are too many cute names! lol Just kidding. Keep 'em coming!

Mia - did you add the picture to my post? If so, thank you very much!

I love the movie Bulletproof! Archie is a neat name because I collected Archie comicbooks for a long time. I don't think I could name him Darcy though because that is my brother's girlfriends name. lol :D

I also like the name Rocky. Makes me think of Rocky and Bullwinkle!

Also, Murphy sort of struck a note with me ... I am adding those three to my ever-growing list. Maybe it is a good thing I have to wait so long to get him - I'll have plenty of time to add to the list, and whittle it back down.

You might not want to go the way I went. You see my mother named her Chi after Buffy the Vampire Slayer.. It kinda seemed natural to name my Chi Spike after one of the vampires. But then I like it that he bites. It means noone in the neighborhood is going to steal him. We've had a few people sneak up to the fence and try to pick him up. After he drew blood on every stranger he met those little incidents stopped.

Really??? People tried to pick him up out of your yard? How scary. A neighbor of ours has the cutest Chi and I always joke with my husband that I am working on an elaborate scheme to take it but obviously I never would. I can't believe people would do that!

I'm glad Spike isn't afraid to bite strangers, too, then! :twisted:

yep lol, the names will never come to an end lol, gawdd i remember the pain of trying to pick a name but trust me you will come across one and itll just click ;)

I LOVE the name Bailey for a lil boy chi and looking at the pic he looks like a bailey colour :D :D I will try and dig out my list of boys names, :wink:

I cant believe ppl would ever dream of nicking a chi :cry: it is sooo sad. we had an incident here in the UK a couple of months ago when a top breeder had her chihuahuas stolen from her yard :cry: one of them was pregnant too. The last I heard the pregnant bitch was found outside a shop door, she was safe thankfully, but the lady hadnt micro chipped any of her dogs so the police were not going to return the bitch to the lady but when the bitch was taken to the lady she was going so crazy that the police knew that this dog must have been the ladies dog.

So from this story i am definately going to get diesel microchipped, i think its a really good idea :D

Sad to say I personally witnessed 4 attempts to take my Spike. My Husband witnessed many others while I was attending my college classes. I guess it was a good thing that Spike draws blood. The attempts to steal my Baby Boy stopped about 3 weeks before we rescued my mothers Chi Buffy from my mothers 2 cats, Reilly O'Rollans (a 1/2 ragdoll 1/2 siamese) and Kao Ko Kung (a full blood siamese) They didn't like my little vampire slayer. My Buffy girl is a little sweetie (for a chi anyway) and if Spike hadn't been so nasty someone would have taken her.
By the way having seen your baby boy, I'm tempted to suggest that you name him Sir Barkolomew Squintzalot (aka Skipper). Although I'm sure your baby boy has better daytime vision than my mother's first Chi, He sure does look a lot like Skipper.

Did you pick out a name yet??

A Newbie to the site, yes. But, I just adopted a baby boy chi, born on St. Pat's day. I went through the same process, as I had my sights set on a female and had no idea what to name my male whom I fell in love with and could not resist taking home. He was quoted to be a "Teacup" even though I realize this is not an official breed type. So, after pondering for a few days, I decided, since he is the color of tea, I would name him Pekoe (as in, Orange Pekoe Tea). He loves it!

Some suggestions for you, from my list of favorites I chose from:

-- Scooter
-- Skippy
-- Shrek
-- Levy
-- Chevy
-- Otis
-- Samson
-- Monster
-- Pedro

I was waiting to officially introduce myself when I had some pictures of my new boy. Stay tuned...
