It took me 5 months to name Puck.

My #1 rule was, "no P names". *cough* Well...

I don't really like names like Brat, Princess, or Tinkerbell (though all are suitable for her).

I don't want to give her a "real" name like Ginger or Sandy.

Something a little bit unique, and fitting.

Short, one syllabol or two.

(And these rules are why it takes me so long to pick out a name.)

Well, if there are any neat ideas out there. I want to name her before she's 6 months old...keep down on the confusion from calling her "Puppy" (Puck thinks I'm saying "Pucky").

how about naming her after a diva-like celebrity?

Diva is cute, here are some others I have thought of:

Phoebe
Brigette
Nell
Chloe
aphrodite

you could really name her something cute with her attitude being like it is. Maybe name her after someone with a diva-like attitude

maybe Whitney? (as in Houston) lol :D
or Aretha? (Franklin)
or maybe Anjolina ( Jolie) (s/p?)

hmmm those are a few of my suggestions. Let us know what you decide to call her. :wave:

I thought of few more:
Tipper
Tippy
Pepe
Tequila

If I hadn't named Pip already, I might have gone for Tipper or Tippy. My sister called to tell me that when he would eat, he would lean over the bowl, and both his hind legs would come off the floor! He even did this sometimes when he ran-Man, the things I have missed since I don't have him!! I don't know if he still does this, but the name sure would fit!

Chloe
Lilo
Kikio
Eva

I like those a lot. Especially Lilo (I love Lilo and Stitch!)

It's a good idea, either keeping with our Shakespeare theme, or thinking of someone with an attitude...

I WAS toying with the idea of getting an Italian Greyhound and naming him Oberon. Someone, I don't think Oberon fits a girl Chi. What was the queen's name? Titania?

Thanks for the links, I'll take a look. I really don't want to take as much time with her as I did with Puck.

Hey, this is helping.

And I found a neat site analyzing the play, with this to say about Puck.

PUCK

Puck is a generic term for a type of supernatural being present in Celtic mythology and in English folklore. Commonly, the Puck was an amoral spirit or imp which played arbitrary tricks on people. Puck refers to this reputation in Act II scene 1:


PUCK
Thou speak'st aright;
I am that merry wanderer of the night.
I jest to Oberon and make him smile
When I a fat and bean-fed horse beguile,
Neighing in likeness of a filly foal:
And sometime lurk I in a gossip's bowl,
In very likeness of a roasted crab
And when she drinks, against her lips I bob
And on her wither'd dewlap pour the ale.
The wisest aunt, telling the saddest tale,
Sometime for three-foot stool mistaketh me;
Then slip I from her bum, down topples she,

He is a representative of the Trickster figure, which appears in most folklores.

Robin Goodfellow, Puck's other name, is derived from English folklore. The spirit was not actually good by nature, but was called Goodfellow as a sort of appeasement, meant to deflect the sprit's pranks towards other people. Hobgoblin was another name for this spirit, perhaps more descriptive of its true nature.

-------------------------

This is great--I wanted to name him Loki! And I picked a name with a very similar meaning. I didn't particularly realize it, just thought, "Puck is a mischevous fairy and gave everyone donkey ears (kinda like Chihuahua ears)."

My thought now is... Titania is too long, Titan sounds maculine, and Titi sounds like Tee Tee. But I could call her Ari, short for Ariadne. Cute. Also the name of a character in a book I like. Not much attitude, though. So I'm holding it in the back of my mind, but no decision yet.
