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.

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!!

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'.

My first V was Boone. Every guy wants a dog named Boone at one point in his life. :D
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.

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

We looked at a bunch of Hungarian names but they were too hard to pronounce. One of our favorite TV shows is Dexter (on Showtime), the loveable serial killer that works for the police department. He's a red head so it fit perfectly.

We also went through many possible names (including "Denny, Denny Crane" from Boston Legal"). We then found Ronan which means little seal. Because of their coat, it seemed so right. It is also a very masculine name, so we stuck with that. We also think it's funny that our Golden can say "Ro-Ro", so that is his nickname. :)

Our 1st V was Lincoln, something to do with Abraham Lincoln and the redcoats, my husband named him.

Current V is Virgil after Virgil Earp -- Wyatt Earps brother, no reason except I like westerns and our other dog is Victor so the names kinda went together. "Virgil, Victor leave the cats alone", "Virgil, Victor sit." etc.

Actually when we would correct Virgil poor Victor kept thinking he was doing something wrong because the names really are too close.

Hi there seems to be some real intellectual naming of some V's afraid mine is not that clever, the boys chose Scooby after 'Scooby Doo' and I must say it suits him fine, long legs which he seems to have no control over, scared of his own shadow but very loyal !

Tizane is a female gypsy. Talking to a Hungarian girl I found out we don't have the right pronunciation but I like the way it sounds when we say it so the name stays. And we call her Zane for short.

We named our girl Casey. For as long as we've been together, my fiance said if we get a dog her name will be Casey. It fits her perfectly.

Hi,
We have a 'Ruby' although I wanted to call her Gretchen but my husband said it sounded too much like 'wretching'! He wanted to call her Martha which I just hated!
If we had a boy I wanted to call him Solomon or Amos!!

Ruby is 5 1/2 mths old now and I said to my husband the other day 'I hate Ruby's name' and he said 'me too!' but it really does suit her, besides I think she thinks her name is NO! at the moment !!!!lol
