I hate picking names. Before I get a pet, I make a list of the names that might work, then when I meet the dog, I pick the name that works best.
Except that has only ever worked for Oliver... Mouse, Boo and the Munch never fit the names I had chosen, so I had to try to come up with new names Took me a week to name Mouse, 2 weeks to name Boo, and a month to name Munch... thank goodness the deaf dogs(and cat) don't care what you call them! LOL
But then, naming a little puppy is easier, as they often grow into their names When my sister decided to get a Westie, she was bound and determined to get a female and name her Maggie... that went on for 3 years until she did finally get her puppy... whom she named Annabelle! (Maggie didn't suit her lol) what's odd, is she has never shortened the name, to Annie, or Belle or anything, Annabelle is Annabelle, and that's that! LOL
