Help with a suitable name, part II ...

In a previous thread, several foosters were generous enough to lend a name for the pup we were watching while our neighbors were on vacation. She enjoyed our company so much that the neighbors report that she still tries to walk up our driveway on occasion when she is out walking.

Now we have a new dilemma. We have recently adopted a dog that was surrendered in Lancaster county and was scheduled for euthanization. A local animal rescue was consulted and snatched her up. They found that the dog's behavior didn't quite match what the previous owner had complained about. My wife works with someone who used to manage the rescue, and thus we were alerted.



Her name was originally Hanna. The shelter renamed her An'ya. We are struggling with a suitable name. Most people are suggesting "people names". I'm not sure I like that. I certainly haven't heard anything that I thought was better than the one the rescue came up with.



What does foo say?

Very cute pup, how old? I would leave it at Hanna if that's what she knows, but if not, I like Buttercup and Rags. I'm kind of drawing a blank right now.

How about Fido, a classic dog name but rarely used.

But that dog doesn't look like a Fido.

Just please don't name it Bailey or any Coffee derived names. Those are pretty over-used.

It's a terrier, just name it SuperDog.

I have to agree with BenzFanatic nothing wrong with leaving it as Hannah if that's what she knows. It will keep her comfortable. All dogs get nicknames as you get to know them. Maybe one of her nicks will be what you end up calling her in the long run.

Her coloring reminds me of coffee with cream or milk swirled in. How about Mocha?
