OK so, I got a puppy but that's another story and the Mrs said we can keep her!!

She's a red/white Boxer- chunky and gorgeous!!

We already have a staffy/collie cross- white/black with a black spot over one eye and he's called Atlas as in the Titan... We're thinking keeping with Greek Mythology but not something we'd sound stupid shouting in the park!!

And she's a girl so... Needs to be a girls name...


This is harder than I thought!

Edited to add- oops put 'he' in the title... Definitely a 'she' unless something's gone horribly wrong!!

Athena? Minerva?

idiot85 posted 6/2/2013 07:15 AM

Thought about Athena or maybe Calypso since she was Atlas' daughter!

My daughter suggested Sotirius- like 'no babe, he's just Greek.' He lives down the road ha

Please post a pic of the puppy

Also, I like the name Eos.

I like Athena and Calypso. How about Artemis, goddess of the hunt?

Unagie posted 6/2/2013 10:05 AM

I like Athena.
I also like Maia, also one of Atlas' daughters and Rhea and Selene.

Medusa? Madly for short?

TattoodChinaDoll posted 6/2/2013 10:38 AM

Persephone! Call her Percy for short.

She's a boxer? How about Laila after Muhammed Ali's daughter?

idiot85 posted 6/2/2013 10:53 AM

Eos makes me think of a VW ha...

Oh no not Medusa- too scary, I couldn't look at her

Persephone- again a bit scary!! At least Calypso's just an ice lolly... Ha

If she was a boy I think we'd have gone for Icarus but- when I went to see them she was just too gorgeous!!

How about selene? I think she's maybe too daft for selene though!!

Lucky2HaveMe posted 6/2/2013 11:12 AM

Selene makes me think of Celine Dion!

I like Minerva - Minny for short!

idiot85 posted 6/2/2013 11:16 AM

Sounds like I'm saying man eartha with my accent- or my nerve with an Italian accent- 'mama mia! My nerve!' If you get me ha

Yeah i get you with Selene though- maybe I better think twice... Oof got a Dad joke in there- get in! Ha

I like Freya or Frigg ... Both goddess names ...

Freya I think is pretty and graceful sounding ... although a boxer pup is prolly anything but. I LOL'ed at Frigg ... when you get mad at her and yell FRIGG !!!! Cause your upset not cause your calling her ... Or all normal like at the park your happily calling out FRIGG ....

Okay maybe not Frigg ...

idiot85 posted 6/2/2013 12:03 PM

Can I really ask my kids to shout 'frigg' haha

Jen posted 6/2/2013 12:12 PM

Sure can. It's not a bad word. It's all about the inflection and tone.

Freya better anyway ... or Rhea I like that one to.

Unagie posted 6/2/2013 12:29 PM

Hmmm Celine Dion is not really on my radar so the name Selene is just pretty to me. I do like Rhea a lot too.

Lucky2HaveMe posted 6/2/2013 12:52 PM

Get that FRIGGIN dog in here NOW!

Kinda like naming her Damn... as in "Where's that Damn dog?!?" and she comes running!

aesir posted 6/2/2013 15:15 PM

If you want to go with Greek mythology, I think it would be cool to name a dog The Kraken, that way, whenever the dog wants to go out, you can yell at the kids

Release The Kraken!

woundedwidow posted 6/2/2013 15:33 PM

How about Gaia - goddess of the Earth. Or Nyx, who was goddess of the night and also the daughter of Chaos, and Chaos was the grandmother of Zeus. Or if the puppy is a real rampager, call her Chaos! That's appropriate, as Chaos did not have a human form.

idiot85 posted 6/2/2013 18:14 PM

The Mrs likes Chaos... I tried out 'nyx' and my little boy started say 'knickers' then giggling!

Rhea sounds a bit like rear.

If my dog was called kraken- would it be Krak for short? Ha
