My friend Mark was going to have a dog. He had promised his son that they would pick up a dog when he was old enough to help care for the dog, and by the time he was six years old they decided the time was right. Mark and his son Peter and Marks’s wife, Elizabet, spent days thinking about the dogs’ names, discussing them, investigating and more, and finally decided on the name “Conrad.”
But how can you name something you have not seen or someone you do not know? Well, obviously you can, but the name you choose may be inappropriate. Well, on the sixth birthday the dog arrived and he was not “Conrad.” The name simply did not fit. It was more of a “Bowser” or maybe a “Gus” or even a “Jughead”. The name was simply incorrect.
Finally, “Conrad” received a nickname that stayed. The nickname is not important, but it is a name that fits the dog and the personality of the dog.
Do not name your dog before you meet him; It makes no sense! You can think of the names you like for dogs, maybe even make lists of names, but do not make that final decision.
There are some great website with really awesome and original dog names and you can click here to go there.
Now, of course, we’re talking about dogs, not people. Renaming a dog is simpler than changing a person’s name. There are no documents, signatures, legal proceedings, etc. So if you give your dog an inappropriate name, simply modify it! Your dog will not care and you will be happier!
