Getting a new GSD puppy - help with naming him :)
by seeofred on 16 March 2012 - 17:26
First time poster but long time forum observer here :)
The day has come, I am receiving my GSD puppy today - it is being shipped to me :)))))
Since we (my family) could not come to the agreement for the puppy name, I would like to have fellow forum members input in puppy names suggestions :)
The male puppy is from the "N" litter. So far we were thinking of naming him "Nitro" "Nero"....but somehow those names seem to be, how to say, to simple kind of overused by everybody.......
At present it is hard to determine whether our puppy will be long coat or longer plush coat. ( I will post another thread for your opinions on this once I receive the puppy and make few pictures ). Regardless of coat type, I am sure that we will love this puppy.
If is of any relevance, here is puppy pedigree tree:
Again, I am looking for your creative puppy names inputs for litter letter "N", and if you wish to provide any comment on puppy pedigree, that won't hurt either.

|Hi, there! Congrats on getting a new puppy!! So glad you posted and hope you continue to post! Plus, we need pics when he arrives!!!! |
I stumbled across the name picker on this site. If you go to the left side of the site and scroll down you will see: Name Picker under the Collections section. This might help you!!
Sorry I can't comment on pedigree but maybe a fellow forum member will be able to comment.
Good luck and I hope he is everything you dreamed of!!!!

|The name picker under "N" can be funny. It suggested the name, "Nobody". LOL|
I always liked Nemo. Or how about Nova, he'll be sure to be a star.

Since you cant decide on a "name" how bout Nombre... Spanish for... name! Seriously though, wait until you see the pup and meet him, maybe he will tell you what his name is. Sometimes the name just fits the dog.

|I let the puppy name itself... I have a name ORIN which is pretty powerful in menaing and then I have BOB..... he still needs to tell me he true name. I hope it will not remain Bob...he upgrater to Bober but we will see.|
You can also call him NONAME until your family figures it out

|My first male who got me involved in the breed and SchH was named Neeko. I still like the name.|

|I used Nemo and Nelor for my "N" boys. They're strong names and easy to enunciate. Good luck with your new puppy.|

|I've just bought a bitch puppy from a C litter and had the same problem as you. I found this site and got the name from here:|
In the end I settled on Chaya which I'd never have come up with otherwise.
Good luck with your pup.

|Niklas, Nord, Nixe, or Norbert----they are German names.|
Have fun with your new puppy!

|Nico or Nando|

|Congrats on getting a new pup! What about looking at his pedigree, maybe one of his ancestors has a suitable name? I agree with some of the other posts....see what he's like and then you and your family can pick a name that suits him.|
I think it took us a month to pick a name for our 9 month old pup. We had picked the name Iris for her but after having her here for a few weeks we noticed there was nothing feminine about this girl...she's a big, rough bitch! So we ended up calling her Juno instead.
Have fun with your new addition!

|Why limit yourself to "N" names?|
Other than his registered name I would think you can use any name you please as a call name...

|Was just going to cOme back and suggest Nixon and I see someone suggested it. My one girl is from S litter so we named her Sanjanna but her call name is Janna or JJ|

|I think my favorite N name is probably either Nurik, Nikon, or Nakota.|
I also like the names Navajo, Nikou, Niklos, Nix, Nalaar, and Nova. Good luck and let us know what you pic... and don't forget the pictures!

|My post just evaporated so not sure if you got it so sorry if a duplicate... I just went through this with my new GSD puppy, it's harder than it seems it should be. I like power names and names from science, so don't laugh but here's some ideas: Noble, Nomad, Neutron or Neutrino (star), Newton (after Isaac), Nobel, Noel, Naja (a cobra), Nile (which is a mighty river, of course), Night (you could spell it Knight on his papers and make a regal-sounding name), Nighthawk, Nightrider, Nuke, Nisus (Greek mythology - refers to a driving force), Nabu (Babylonian God of Wisdom), Nimbus (the halo opr radiant light like around a saint's head) or Nimbus (storm cloud), Nova, Nebula, Nabob, NASA, Navy (SEAL), Nazareth or Nazarene, Nemesis, Ninja, Niello (silver and black jewelry, Russian) Neon, Nevada, Nexus, Nicolai or Nick, Nordic or Norse (Germanic languages), Noreaster (a storm) or Norther (the wind) or Northman , Normandy (D-Day invasion site), and finally... were there 9 puppies in the litter? then call him Nine, that's kinda trendy these days, I know someone who named their son Five. Which is not as bad as naming your daughter Apple, like Gwyneth Paltrow. Anyway, maybe you'll like one of these N's though some are out there.|
