What should I name my dog?

This sunday we'll be "taking delivery" of our new German Shepherd dog... 6 1/2 weeks old. Male. Trying to figure out what to name him... thought it might be fun to hear some feedback or fresh suggestions...

You could go to the gods, perhaps Thor.

Maybe music, how about Mozart?

Gratuliere by the way.

I didn't vote for "other", although on second thought, it would be a unique name for a dog. Other than "other", Otto is a German name...

I liked Zoso (Led Zeppelin reference) because 1. it sounds cool, and 2. it is something specifically suited for you.

you want something that sounds good but also means something to you and so that is perfect.

Hey LEDZEP,

some nice suggestions here!

Ok, so Mozart would be austrian, Thor would be greek.

Dexter, Clyde and Hasselhoff are definitely not german.

My suggestions:
  • Purzel
  • Rammstein (not!)
  • Rex (the classic german shepherd name)
  • Angela Merkel
  • Waldi
  • Bello
  • Hugo (my favorite for a male)
  • Boss
  • Enzo (really nice, but unfortunately italian)

But WTH is 'Alger'???

You need to read up on Germanic gods. Thor is not Greek.

Why not combine Hugo and Boss then?
