biggrin.gif Hello, picture this if you will... a 9 week old female dalmatian Puppy who needs a Name.  
Not just any name mind you, it has to be very special biggrin.gif I currently have :

1 seal mitted Ragdoll cat called Theodore Rupert (Teddy)
1 Blue point Ragdoll called Albert Blue ( Bertie)

and 1 old man Dalmatian called Buddy - disclaimer, I didn't name him!

I need a pretty name, not too hard to call out when she runs away... but amazing for a spotty dog wink.gif I thought, where better to ask than on EB with the naming gurus!
So how about it, does anyone have any suggestions?

they made me laugh! I was thinking along the lines of Daisy... until I looked on Etsy for a very special handmade collar, and all of the examples had "Daisy" written on them!

She won't stand out at obedience classes if she has the same name as all the other dogs!

I am hoping to go and meet her either tomorrow or Saturday, she is available ready to go to her new home but the people that paid the deposit on her backed out at the last minute sad.gif so the poor baby has no home.  I am about 98% sure I am going to bring her home, but need to meet her first :/ and have a chat with her breeder. As soon as I have a photo I WILL share biggrin.gif

I love Sasha and Polly, and Elizabeth Sophie ( ahhh you get my naming style don't you! ) but my Daughter is called Bethany... so if I name my dog Beth she might be upset :/


She needs a dignified double barrelled name, cos she will be amazing!

Nina?

Surely Polly's full name would be something like Paloma? Or Polka?
