    Hi everyone! I am fairly new to this site, I originally posted under the introduction part of Chaz. Anyway, my name is Jamie, I am married w/ two little girls, a mixed breed dog Savannah and a female calico mix Asia. We just found a male bullmastiff puppy that we will be getting either the first or second week of December. We can't seem to agree on a name for him to save our lives. He is red w/ a dark black mask and a white patch on his chest.

    My husband wants to name him Manning after Peyton Manning and I think it's kind of weird.

    I like Maverick, Griffin, and Noah

    We are both wanting a "Strong" name for him, since it's a powerful breed that gets so big, but I just haven't found a name that I actually LOVE. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks in advance for your help.

    Jamie

    German Shepherd Gurl ~ You are so good at coming up w/ names. Thanks for taking the time to help me once again w/ names. There are some on there that I hadn't thought about. OHHHH............. I really don't like Manning and I really hope that we can agree on something that we really like so I don't feel like I'm dominating the decision. Part of the problem is that my mom is getting a puppy and she is an avid Braves fan and is naming her puppy Maddux which I LOVE!!!! Obviously can't use that name huh?? :) Anyway that's what started my husband thinking of names of sports guys and I am SO NOT into sports!!!!!!

    I think Noah is a cute name... What about Ikaika ("strength" in Hawaiian)? Or Mana ("power in Hawaiian)?

    Those are neat suggestions. How do your pronounce the first one? I was thinking Mana would be pronounced the way it looks w/ a short a?

    Thank you for your suggestions!

    Thank you guys for your suggestions! About the Colts thing, we know two little kids named Peyton so I don't want to use that. I like Eli but my husband said that he is leading his team and they will probably play each other and his favorite is Peyton and the Colts!

    About Trey, a good friend of ours named her son that so we don't want to use it for that reason.

    names

    some of the people i work with have this theory....the dog's personality will take after the name you choose for him/her. haha, its silly, but sometimes i guess it happens. so maybe if you name him something like that he might be a barbarian! :p

    maybe Corona? i really like that for a name, or Kojak? brutus?

    my roommate just said juggernaut....

    she said it was the name of a battleship, but it makes me think of 13 Ghosts. the Juggernaut was the most vicous ghost of the 13...

    :) good luck!

    Sirius ~ What do you mean about introducing him slowly? To other dogs or people or both? We have a female dog that's about 4 y/o and a cat that is 6 months old, and then my mom is getting a puppy 2 weeks b/f we get ours. Hers is a yellow lab. We are also going to start him in obedience classes in Jan.

    Thanks for you info! I still have no clue on names, we just can't seem to find one that really sticks. I think one problem is that my other animals are Savannah and Asia and I feel like I need to have a name that goes w/ those two. I know that I will always be calling the dogs together to go out/come in/eat etc.... so it's like I need something that kinda goes together kwim?
