My Boyfriend will get a new Dog in Summer
and he has no clue how to name him.
If he choose a girl the name will be EMMA, but he has no clue if he pick a boy.

So, how would you call a male Dog?

here are some pics of Rhodesian Ridgeback puppies and grown up Rhodesian Ridgebacks
(but please notice, the puppie he will get is not born yet)

Lena for female and if there's a male winner of Eurovision 2011 for male. :haha:
well, i suggested Lena to him too, because of ESC Lena and Biathlon Lena.
But female name will be Emma, but male name is very tough.
My Dog is called Paul, andmy BF is a bit angry that i took the cool name so he canīt use Paul for his dog :cool:

Emma is not a good name for a dog. A dog names must contain less vowels because our languages have enough of them already and the dog can have difficulties understanding what of the "eeee"s and "aaaa"s while you talk your everyday stuff is for him. Spare him/her this and chose something with more consonants.

There are huge lists of dog names on the internet. Not all are good, but try to chose a short one, with less vowels and not close to any word you use in your everyday conversations. Btw, I hope you knows what kind of education and presence you will need to make such a dog happy and secure!

Here's a Hawaiian name I've always thought would be a nice name for a dog:


It means, "The Beautiful Aroma of My Home at Sparkling Diamond Hill is Carried to the Eyes of Heavan."
