J names

I had no idea how few “J” litters there are!! I have a huge list of names and so far haven’t seen that the one I want is taken….although she could be a guide, I don’t know. I’ve never made name lists before–I just had the one name I wanted. For Arturo, I wanted “Alkai” for Lawrence I wanted “Liberty” and for Pomona I wanted “Paris”. Knowing the B’s name luck(Sakino & Vortex), Miss J’s name probably won’t be on my list anyway. But I’m pulling for Jillian.

What were some of the names you guys hoped for your puppies?

  1. Awww, Vortex is a great name!

    With my Vortex, I knew I was getting either him or his brother Vax, and I was really hoping for Vortex.

    I know I had some other name in mind for Baloo, but I can’t remember it, and his name fits him perfectly anyway.

    Dallas I wanted to name Denai, but I was given a choice between Dallas or Diva … no question there for me. And now I can’t imagine her with any other name.

    Most of my others I’ve had some say in their names (other than Boss, whose name I still hate, and Amigo and Geisha which I liked anyway) so their names were at least in my top 5. I do remember really wanting “Pandora” instead of “Patience” but got outvoted on that one.

  2. I can’t wait to meet the little “J” girl.

    For Patriot I wanted Pheonix (his brother), but I am very glad I ended up with Patriot instead.

    With Calliope, I didn’t have any guesses because she was a transfer.

    With Hobbs, I was told his name was a one syllable “H” name, and the only one I didn’t HATE was Hobbs! One name I really hated was Hal, and I was SO relieved when the other raiser in my group got Hal off the truck before I got my little Hobbs.

  3. This doesn’t answer your question but I might be able to come see you get your puppy! Malta is moving to another family so they are getting a new puppy on the June truck. 🙂 I haven’t heard what their assingment is yet but once I do, I’ll let you know!

  4. Hmmm… Well, for Eagle I really antan Ewan, Edward, or Elvis. =P But my leader let his name slip early, so I already knew his name when I got him. =]

    Franklin was a transfer, so I already knew his name.

    Pilaf… well, I really wanted Persia, and when we walked in the room and saw “Persia” and “Pilaf” on the bags we were kind of stumped. I really liked Persia, but the other raiser pickig up a puppy was talking about how horrible it would be if they got a dog named Pilaf. So I ws kind of leaning toward letting her have Persia. But when they brought them out, Pilaf was cuter anyway. XP

  5. For Luigi, I was new to the whole thing so I didn’t really know the types of names GDB uses, if you know what I mean. 😉 I really liked Louie or Louis.

    With Holly, I actually got one of my favorite choices! I wanted Helen, Holly, Hillary, Hallie, Honey, or Hope. I was SO relieved not to get Hortencia or Hyundai or something like that. =P

    With Alana, I got to help submit names. I knew the names of the pups in the litter and I was pulling for either Alana or April and was ecstatic to get such a pretty girl and a pretty name.

    I got to submit names for Peyton’s litter as well. Until a few weeks before he arrived, I had thought I was receiving a girl, and I really liked Paris too. Recently, I’ve realized that the name doesn’t matter as much as I once thought it did. I can remember stressing about whether I would get a “good” name or not. Now I don’t really care, because I know I’ll grow to love the name and the puppy. For my fifth puppy, I’m actually kind of hoping I get a weird four syllable name, just for a change. 😀

  6. Strange how we do this… Chappelle I wanted Chutney. Spike I wanted Simba. Burgess I wanted Bradley. And for Tahoe, we knew all of the names in her litter and I wanted Tessa.

  7. For Ggoody I had no idea how TSA came up with names until I learned later that the dogs are named after 9/11 victims and fallen soldiers. Ggoody took awhile to warm up to just cause it seemed like an odd dog name, but it fits now! For Llarson I knew one of his sisters’ name which was Llane and I loved that name and was hoping for it. But I guessed Llarson because my spanish teacher was Ms. Larson and sure enough Llarson was his name!

  8. For my 1st puppy I wasn’t sure how names worked. So I didn’t really care what my little girls name was. So when I received Berta I didn’t care for her name but now I don’t mind it.

    With my 2nd puppy I was kind of leaning toward Miami and Mossflower. I ended up receiving Maggie instead which I liked just as much.

    For Myra I was kind of hopping for the same names I had for my second pup. So those would be Miami and Mossflower.

    For Lansing I was really hoping for Luigi, Landon, and Lancalot. Turned out though that I got Lansing and the girl before me got Luigi.

    For Journey I thought I was getting another M puppy and that he was going to be black. So I had no J names that I liked.

  9. I have stopped being picky about names, I tend to like the unusual ones though. I hate normal “human” names for dogs. 😀

    Prudy was my first and I didn’t know much about the naming process so I didn’t really guess names for her but after I got her I was SOOOO thankful that I got Prudy and not her sisters Pearlette, or Polka. (I wasn’t a fan of either of those names.)

    Tahoma- I don’t remember what I wanted her name to be but when I got her I loved the name from the start!!

    Glennie- she was a transfer but I swear my leader said her name was Glarice, I thought it was kind of a putrid name so when I went to pick her up and I got Glennie I was really happy and I liked the name.

    Adeline- another transfer so I knew her name and although it was human I still liked it and it fit her.

    Sherman- I really wanted him to be Snoopy or Sport but I was happy with Sherman.

    Spanky-Another transfer and I thought it was horrible, just because it was so undignified for a guide dog. It quickly grew on me and Spanky was a Spanky through and through.

    Fullerton- I wanted Fritz or Forest. I didn’t like Fullerton at first, I thought it was too long, but it has also grown on me.
