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...

Help?!

This is harder than I thought!

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

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

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!!

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 ...

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

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!

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.

Rhea sounds a bit like rear.

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

Dogs love to tinkle on trees, so how about Pomona - Roman goddess of fruit trees and orchards? You could call her Mona.

Candi is the Indian goddess of the moon - she and Chandra (the Hindu male) alternative their turns.

Most people will think Calypso is named after the style of music/dance.

Naming the dog Chaos will work really well if you know anyone named Schtarker, then you can say

Schtarker zis is Chaos. We don't (insert silly action here) here!

Yeah, okay I know that should be KAOS.

Often overlooked, Iduna or Idunn is the norse godess responsible for keeping everyone youthful.

Who cares? They can think you're fans of Pirate of the Caribbean if they are so inclined.

With Calypso, you can shorten to Callie and meet the "don't sound stupid at the dog park" requirement.

Everyone thinks calypso is the ice lolly here ha I like it though!

I'm warming to Chaos- she is mental- driving my dog crazy- poor Atlas looks like he's got the weight of the world on his shoulders- oh yes, a greek mythology Dad joke.

Aesir- I don't know what that is!

Karma- oh yeah ha. It's been a long day!!

Just a cautionary tale......My DD wanted a name from Greek mythology for her Golden Retriever.

She chose Perses, the Titan god of destruction.

I think the dog saw that as a personal challenge. I could post pics.

Don''t know why, haven''t even read any of the other names, I just saw your post and that popped into my head. Maybe good if she''s a Great Dane. Might be overkill if she''s a teacup poodle!
