    I always want my puppies to have different names. Names you don't always hear or see everyday. Being Irish/Italian I figured why not just give a whole litter Irish names? Not that i havent named a pup or two an Irish or Italian name but never a whole litter. And so here are the names im considering that I like the best. Tell me which ones you like best.

    Female names I like

    Ailbhe- it can be male or female really I just like how it sounds and it means white or world king.
    Aine- which means delight or pleasure
    Aodhamair- which means litte Abbot
    Aoibheann (OB awn) - which means Radiance or Beauty
    Bláthín - which means little flower
    Bríghid- means High goddess
    Caoimhe- beauty or grace
    Ceara- fiery red
    Ciar- black
    Dáirinn- daughter of Fionn
    Easnadh- Musical Sound
    Feme - young woman
    Fianait- wild creature
    Fionnait- fair haired
    Fionúir- ghost or spirit
    Grian- sun goddess
    Íonait- faithful
    Maon- Silent
    Meadhbh- she who intoxicates
    Moncha- from the Celtic Goddess Monica
    Muirín- born of the sea
    Muirne- High Spirited
    Neasa- not gentle
    Órlaith- golden princess

    Male names I like

    Ailill- means elf
    Breasal- brave or strong in conflict
    Brion- noble or high
    Brocc- badger or sharp faced
    Conall- strong as a wolf
    Labhraidh- Speaker
    Laoidheach- songful or poetic
    Maolán- warrior
    Miach- honorable or Proud
    Nuadha- Cloud Maker
    Oisín- Little Deer
    Onchú - fierce Hound
    Scolaí- town crier
    Uallgarg- feirce pride


    I picked these names based on the breed chracter and its appearence. I will not decided who will be named what until the puppies are born. But if i could get a top 10 or top 20 list together that would help alot. Ok so if you have any opinions on the future litter of puppies names go ahead and tell me :).

    If I knew how to properly pronounce them, I think they'd be great. ;)

    I have a feeling Scolai is going to be an appropriate name for the loudest male, lol!

    I'd always thought about naming a pair Bran and Sceolan, after Fionn MacCumhall's hounds given to him by Nud, of the Sidhe, and a male after Cuchulain the hero. Definitely going to name a male Fila Puka, after the fearsome beastie of the Otherworld ;)
