    So I am looking at a list of call name ideas for a red male doberman.

    If you guys have anything to add please do. It doesn't matter if the name means anything in regards to a registered name.

    1) Seth (in regards to the eqyptian god)
    2) Baal (egyptian)
    3) Giza
    4) Cairo

    Noticing a theme here? lol you dont have to stick to the theme. I have more to add but need to go bath the kid.


    There are some names I like that just dont roll of the tonge well. Ammut, Horus (would be interesting to shorten :rofl1: )

    Well just a head's up, if you go with Baal a fair segment of the population may assume he's named after a Blizzard game called Diablo.

    So I've heard anyway...

    Of those choices I like Seth or Cairo best but I don't really have anything new to add, sorry.

    I LOVE the name Cairo and, in all my years of working with dogs, it's a name I've never heard before.

    Do you have a breeder in mind already? I'm always curious as to where people get their dobes from :)

    So true, when I read the name Baal I was like "oh, like from Diablo". Shows my nerd level is high...

    I love Cairo for a call name.

    Also, even if a name doesn't roll off the tongue nicely, you'll get used to it and it will become easy. Gavroche doesn't exactly roll off the tongue, but 5 years later I don't even think about it anymore.

    Ilsa was supposed to be Cairo, but it just didn't click. Love the name. :)

    Ramses? If you name him that you should pronounce it that way Jack Black does. :p

    Deshret - red crown that represents lower Egypt

    Khet - fire

    Manu and Bakhu are the two mountains in the west holding up the sky. They're guarded by the lion god Akher.

    Nebu - Gold

    Sekhem - symbol of authority (staff)
