This is my new little girl. She is a Yorkie. I was told she will turn to a much lighter color,maybe blonde. I would like some help picking out her name.
Along with a new name 'Tera' she also has a new co-owner. My DGD, Sophia. I have added another picture of them together on here also.

Or HONEY 'cause she is....
Or EVE 'cause she's the first....
Or SNUGGLES 'cause she will...:heart:

How about Honey? It would go with the color and you would always be able to say "Honey, I'm home".:)

I'm in love. She is just gorgeous!

Fudge is a cute name.

She looks like a Sophie to me.

No matter what I named her, I'd probably call her Sweat Pea a lot.

Yes, Sophie is a cute name. I don't think my daughter would like me to name her that, that is my DGD's name. Of course you didn't know that though :)

I think I would always end up calling her Sweetie or Sweetie Pie, no matter what her name was if she was mine. She is too cute!

Aaaaawwwwwwwwwwww! I think she looks like a Ginger, or like my Shih Tzu: Cricket. Both would fit her.

Remember to spay and don't add to the pet overpopulation ;) Give her a kissy on the nose for me, if I were there I would!

I have also had king charles cavalier spaniels. I always have them spayed or neutered. Thanks for the help though. My last cavalier's name was Ginger. She died of diabetes last year.

We have our 3rd yorkie who is a male and his name is Pepper. Our previous yorkies names were Dusty and Dusty Dickens (he was nemed for the 1st yorkie). Anyway, their 2nd names/nicknames were Sweet Pea. We have a couple of extra nicknames for our current yorkie - Baby Doll and Doll Baby. Give her a hug and a kiss from another yorkie lover. They are terrific dogs! Can't imagine life without one.

I have had a Tara, she lived to be 16. Good dog name. She was my first dog ever and I got her from the SPCA. No matter WHAT their names, they are all "Punkin" to me.........which is a cute name in itself ;)

Currently we have 3 girls: Pepper, Cricket & Ripley and a very naughty boy named Peanut as well as my mom's dog Candy.
:flirt:

Can't wait to see what you name her!!!!!!!!!

I loved the dog dress link! However, as a knitter, there's a pattern I'm DYING to make for one of my girls, it's from a book called Posh Pooches and called a Ribbon Dress (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/ribbon-dress/people) (Ravelry link).

Going back to one of my favorite books, I'd have to go with Little Ann or Annie. It's the name of one of the dogs in "Where The Red Fern Grows". I love that name (just a personal thing from loving the book so much) and was going to name my Golden that but my hubby put the kibosh on it. (He has no literary soul, LOL!)

I would vote for Bella. I have a lab/dalmation female that came with that name. It makes for lots of nicknames. Bella donna, Bella sera, Bella button etc.
Congrats on the new puppy.

Looks like a Tina to me. Little, tiny Tina.

Give her hugs & scratches for me.

All I would be ever able to say to a dog like that is "OOOooohhh aren't you a widdiw coodie pootie pie aaaaaawwwwww" and make lots of disturbing sounds. I tturn to mush around cute dogs, kittens, babies and other cute small things. How bout that CST for cute small thing? :roflhard:

We (as in my family) have a habit of naming our dogs "people" names. When I was a kid, we had Andy - a cockapoo. The dog I have now is Maggie - a mini poodle. When I don't use people names, I end up with names like Kitty. :)

Cynamar
12-04-2008, 12:41 PM
We use people names, too. My daughter & I have had two dogs--Katie & Abby--and two cats--Mildred & Fauna (Fauna came to us with that name and we just liked it but it's not really a people name). We've had a turtle named Henry and two fish named Kevin (the second one went by Dos). I wanted to name my pets after mystery authors or my favorite characters but my daughter would not let me name either dog Miss Marple!

Generally I go with non-people names. Pets don't care and the names can be so cute!

I just thought of another one that would be cute! COOKIE! and when s he's being silly she can be Kooky Cookie!

miccisue
12-04-2008, 03:44 PM
For the most part, I like odd names. We had a Loki, Sundance, Woodstock....and I've known dogs named Drambuie, Smirnoff, etc (those were back in my college days, LOL!)

I've never been one for "cutsie" names - don't know why, they just never appealed to me. (But the name for the Norse god of mischief does....go figure.) For example, "Honey" makes me think of that hideous song by Bobby Goldsboro. If you're not old enough to remember it, get on your knees and thank your lucky stars!!!!!!!!!!

Luvmyrottnboy
12-04-2008, 03:58 PM
Oh Gosh! I remember that song! It was truly awful:)

Anyway, I am not a fan of cutsie names and there is member on another forum who named her female dog: Bubba Ann. I love that name!

I like human names. My dog is Cyrus and my cat is James so I will contribute: Madeleine, Isabella, Matilda, Daisy.

But I do love Bubba Ann!:cheering:

Forgot to explain that the first yorkie was called Dusty and the second one who was partially named in honor of the first was called Dickens - along with Sweet Pea (his nickname). Made me remember that I also like the name Dixie. Had an encounter with a very nice rescue dog by that name. If I ever get another female dog, I'd like to call her Dixie.

Our current female dog ( a shelter dog) came with the name Maggie, but we also call her Princess because she thinks she IS one. She is either a pomeranian or schipperke mix...or both.

I like people names for our pets, too. They ARE people to us, lol.

I will go along with Puddinpop and Precious. We have named all of our dogs, with the exception of the current one, people names. 'Cause they are!! We've had Sam, Josie, Barney, Missy, Annie and now Pequina, who was given to us not quite three years ago by a lovely Hispanic lady in NM and it means 'Little One.' Well, Pecky-Poo was already six years old so her name stuck. All of the suggested names are great and I love Bella and Honey. Oh, a friend who had a teacup poodle named here Luv. And, by the way, she was. Good luck, keep we dog lovers posted. P.S. Your puppy is a doll baby.

My computer has been down. They changed over to fiber & didn't get mine all the way wired up. I'm off and running again now.
I have it down to a few names now.
1. Tera
2.Bella
3.Tasha
4.Zoey
If you want vote on one of those, that would help too.
THANKS

Indygirl
12-05-2008, 09:14 PM
Zoey (now you'll have to get a Frannie) I picked that as one of the choises because I have a 'Zeus'(sp). He was left behind in my daughter's neighborhood. His owner didn't take very good care of him. Then when she had to move she left him just running the streets & never came back to get him :sad: sad for him but good for me. He is very happy now. He really likes the new puppy also.

Knit4Pie
12-05-2008, 10:15 PM
I vote for Zoey too. That's a sweet name.

Zoey is a great one. That is also the name of my granddaughter's miniature pinscher.

Indygirl
12-06-2008, 05:10 PM
I was thinking very hard about the name 'Zoey'
I REALLY liked that one. My DGD has already started calling her 'Tera' I think that's the one my DD liked the best also. My DGD thinks the puppy is really her puppy anyway ( my fault) When I was bringing DGD home tue. I told her I had a surprise for her when we got home. At 4 years old, I guess she just thought I ment the puppy was for her. It stays here with me and is my dog, but I don't know how to undo this one. I guess we will just go with the name 'Tera' Not a bad name, was my least favorite on the list though.
Maybe I'm just an old softy when it comes to my one and only DGD :aww:
FYI, Tera is doing great. Sleeps through the night. Uses her pet pads all the time. She does go potty outside also.
Thank's everyone for helping out with a name. I loved hearing all the stories about your pets name's. It's so much fun getting a new pet and finding a name for them.
Happy Kintting,

They are so adorable! I think Terra is a great name. Just coming right out of your granddaughter like that means that it truly IS her name. We spend so much time trying to find the "right" name. Maybe it should just be the first thing that pops in your head? Nice job, Sophia! :thumbsup:
