Names

I've loved a few of the names I've read on these forums and just wondered if everyone would share the names of their current or past vizslas. If there's a story behind it, I'd love to know!
We named our's Shelby because my husband loves Shelby Cobras.

Re: Names

Hi, our new girl is called ruby (which is a nod to her colouring). i really wanted to call her bree (as in van der kamp from desperate housewifes - shes a feisty red head) but couldnt face explaining the name to each new person we met. also people might have thought i named her after brie cheese! not good. if we were having a boy we would have had a chris evans connection as hes my favourite red headed man! if youre living outsdie of the uk sorry you may not know who he is!!

Re: Names

We named Catan after a board game, 'Settlers of Catan'. The whole family became obsessed with playing this game a few years back. We've since taught it to everyone we know. When we told friends and family the name they pretty much laughed at us and said 'ya that makes sense'.

Re: Names

My first V was Boone. Every guy wants a dog named Boone at one point in his life.
2nd V was Silkcut. named after a finer grade of Tobacco.
3rd V was Rush ( Gold Rush) Named for his color and promise in the field.
4th, current, V is named Tika. Very delicate and refined, but she's tough as nails too. She's beautiful.
5th,current, V is Gunnr. She's a straight ahead no nonsense machine. She was born to be a hunting dog first, and a pet second. Gunnr translated is roughly straight to battle.

You'll never beat a lesson into a dog, you just beat desire out.

Re: Names

I have Reba, and her name is twofold, I have known and worked with a couple of Rebas and every one was a redhead. Her registered name is Lil's Rockin' Redd Rebel...and Rebel was shortened/changed to Reba.

Re: Names

bella is my V's name

went to a website for Hungarian girl names and picked one. I want her name to be true to her breed origins, and will do the same for my next one.

Re: Names

Hi,

we as a family spent months trying to decide on a name. Names came and went, came and went again. However when we went to choose her she had sooo much loose skin that instantly Peanut came to mind with it's wrinkly outer husk and the colour fitted perfectly.

This was one name that was suggested by myself right at the start. all those heated discussions !!! but she is now ours and suits her name perfectly, we think anyway.

Regards,

Graham
