Gratuliere by the way.
Actually, Mozart was on my list, as was Wolfgang. For Mozart, I'm afraid he'll wind up scratching the piano keys... for Wolfgang we'd probably end up with "wolfy"...

Dexter...isn't he a serial killer?
Otto isn't bad, but I fear it might cause him to go bald. Men named Otto are almost always bald.

Dexter - cool show.

Zeus isn't bad. Considered Caesar too, but that's been done a lot. Also considered Nero. None of those are germanic of course, but good.

Yeah, but don't people beat you up? I think with a dog named Bimmer, you would be obligated to wear a light blue sweater tied around your neck.

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'???
Dunno Dante... Alger was on a list I saw somewhere.

Also considered naming him Wile E. Coyote. Could call him Wiley...

you want something that sounds good but also means something to you and so that is perfect.
It is pretty cool, isn't it! I keep trying to figure how it will sound over and over... I don't want to fall into the trap of picking some cute name that doesn't fit well or pronounce well later on...

This is harder than selecting options for a new car!

How do you say butt head in German? It's what I call my Springer Spaniel about half the time when tries to run up trees after squirrels.

ROLF!!!!!

.........Is that why he's sniffing your butt?

Best of luck with the new puppy! Don't forget to RTFM and break him in properly.
