    I just got this little guy for christmas and need some help coming up with an appropriate name. I need one that will go along with my other two boys. I have an Australian cattle dog named Loki and a chihuahua mix named Fenriz.


    He is a 3 month old purebred Siberian Husky, red and white color. My boyfriend picked out the name "Uri" but I think it's too girly for him. I like the name "Dirk", but think it's not so suiting. So... if anyone could give me some suggestions and make sure it's unique like something indian or "huskyish" lol.

    very cute i wish my husky was that small again but they grow fast mines almost two, He is so adorable. I like the name Neko you will see lots of energy with the breed and a name will just stick.

    He's beautiful.

    Something in his face reminds me of my dearly departed heart dog, Odin.

    Odin--Greatest of the Norse gods.

    I think that's a good name for a husky.

    I've been calling him Demon and it seems to be the right one! We're sticking with Demon.
