Title: Help naming new lab pup
Post by: opdinkslayer on August 24, 2019, 08:16:50 AM
Hey guys looking for suggestions & opinions for our new little chocolate male coming home in about 10 days. Here’s a few details to help the decision.

Mother is a chocolate named Tikka & dad is a charcoal named Trigger. Our current chocolate is Gunner. Naturally with Tikka being the mother & the gun name theme being throughout, I thought Sako was a no brainer & pronouncing it with a long A like most people mispronounce the rifle company. The wife is fighting me a little & quite a few people were lukewarm to Sako as well. Other names I somewhat like are Remmy,Hunter & Ranger.

So we need some help. Opinions on the names I listed & some suggestions from the huntwa family would be a huge help. :tup:

Here are a few for you to try out. Maxus, Iver, Higgins, Daly, Ljutic, Briley, Luger, Marlin, Midas, Nosler, Rossi, Ruger, Colt, and my all time favorite....Stoner. You call that name in the field and you might get more of a response than you care for though.

I think sako fits pretty darn well, I’d stick w that.  I’m partial to Rocky, miss my boy still.  :'(

I like historical names since I am a bit of a history buff. Two I have liked if I ever got a male lab was Lincoln and call him Link or Gatsby.

Our 2 dogs right now are Boone and Gunner. Boone is the best dog I’ve ever had so I’ll be retiring that name permanently when he’s gone. Not really a gun name but I’m partial to it. Like Curly said Cooper is a great gun name, only problem is it’s also a popular girls name these days  :chuckle:

The wife has sent out the ballot to all the kids & friends. Sako,Bo or Jake. So far it’s about a 3 way tie. :bash: 

Cast your votes folks.

For training reasons I wouldn’t name a dog Bo, sounds too close to NO. And sako or sAko doesn’t roll of the tongue well. I send my retrievers on their name.  Jake gets my vote.

My lab is named Bo and I haven't had any problems mixing no and bo. I like the name Sig and Ike. Do yourself a favor and keep it one syllable.

We had a great dog named Jake. Great name.

What about combining Bo and Jake. You'd get Joe. You could call him Joe or Joey which both sound good to me.

Well after all that, the whole clan has unanimously agreed on Drake. :chuckle: :dunno:  Thanks to all for the suggestions & opinions. :tup:

You named your dog after a R and B hippety hop singing from Canada? :dunno:

I thought you were looking for an ooutdoor related name.  :P :chuckle:

I never said anything about the trainer mixing up No and Bo, I was referring to the dog.  You’re dog may have no issues with the similar sounds, I’ve seen some that have.

Not Maverick, like my wife named our GSP (self fulfilling prophesy?) Naw he has not been that bad. Nut wagon comes to mind.  Mighty dog, Wobbie boy (he carries his wobbie to bed).
