Well, it is settled in my home, we will be adding a new puppy. Looks like it will be a male plush/long coated German shepherd, to be a sibling and playmate to our female 3 year old plush GSD. We are stumped on names. So far, all our pets have had names from my native country, but I compromised this time and said we could name the new pup something from Lord of the Rings. Problem is, there are alots of names we like, but that don't exactly roll off the tongue when you are yelling for the dog to come inside and stop with the early morning barking chain! So, I need opinions from all you DIS dog people - what's a good name for a furry male German shepherd? So far, we have narrowed it down to - Faramir (nice hair, kind and loving) Boromir (neither is easy to yell out quickly!) Eomer (had nice hair, brave, had a sister) Thranduil (I like it, sounds unique and kingly) Kili (fun, enjoys life, brave to the end) Thorin (one child says no, too much like "Thor") Gimli (DH's favorite, says it will be hairy and will swim with hairy dog-women-present GSD LOVES pool!) Pippin (another one that likes fun-pup is kind of goofy) and then my DH's ultimate favorite, Gloin. All I hear is "groin". I know there are also some more obscure names that Tolkien had in his books, but this is our list as we have narrowed it down. I welcome any other suggestions from the LOTR stories! We won't have the pup for 4 more weeks but I will be sure to post pics once he is home and named!
