Pick The Puppy's Name

Create your free online surveys with SurveyMonkey, the world's leading questionnaire tool.

Help me pick the new puppy's name - Please!  It's so hard to choose a name.  I like ones that end in ee sounds - like Tibby.  So above are the names and below are where I got the name ideas from.

Dhali - like the Dalai Lama, but spelled differently.  Tibetan....Dalai Lama....Tibetan Terrier.  This is a name I've been thinking about since I got Tibby.  I thought of it a couple months after I named Tibby and have always wanted to use it, but....he's a boy.  And it sounds like Dolly.  Ironic or just mean?

Wickham/Wickie - I really like the movie Lost In Austen and my favorite character is Capt. Wickham....and it's a different name.  It's easy to say and spell for the vet - always another consideration.

Archer/Archie - Let's see....I use to be really big into archery...went to weekly club shoot nights...until Tibby arrived.  Something about sharp arrows and a puppy didn't seem like a great combo.  Also I like the show Monarch of the Glen and the main characters name is Archie.

Ghillie Dhu/Gilly -   Well, my heritage is Scottish and Ghillie Dhu (according to Wikipedia) means "dark haired lad".  You say it "Gilly Doo" - pronunciation here.  This was my Mom's favorite.  It's fun to say and it's different from Tibby, so hopefully they won't get confused.  Only draw back is spelling it for the vet and everyone else.

2K/TooKay - I'll let you figure out what this one is about ;) hint is it's slang.  This one isn't really at the top of my list....for some reason....LOL!

So please vote above!

Of course I'm a little biased having a Scottish background myself. I like different spellings and that's why I used the Gaelic spelling for my little female, Ceilidh. You should have heard the trouble people had saying her name. But it's nice to be unique and not part of the crowd.

Oh and I was thinking you could say "Ghillie Dhu and Tibby too" when you talk about both of them, that rhymes.
