i'm looking for a new name....

just got a new 7 week old Rhodesian Ridgeback pup...one of the best looking ones i've ever seen but he's gonna be a bigun, he should top out about 130 + lbs, which is about 30 to 35 above AKC standard so we're looking for an appropriate name for an extra large lion hound....
Godzilla was already suggested, but i decided calling him God for short might offend a few people...

if you like hound dogs as much as we do? you'd prolly think it's appropriate tho..... [Wink]

Leo...perhaps too obvious, but also short, which dogs respond to (Leon. Lee, etc)

That's my dogs name. I was going to go with Ooostitch but caved in to my 10 year old daughter. Now we're stuck with Zeus.

Jesus! Jesus! come, boy...

Dogs, cats, horses, etc., respond best to simple easy to distinguish sounds for names...things like Ruff (my current dog's name.....he had it when I got him) or Lady (Lady was the best pointer I ever had and the smartest dog I ever knew....I don't think she ever heard the entire name Lady......it was the "lay" part that she seemed to recognise and respond to).

I too like the name God, since that's not only apt for such a dog, but is also the sort of a sound a dog might hear and take to best. But, like Glass..., I too might not wish to to upset the "church folk".

I point out that very often Father is used as a synonym for God, but is probably too cumbersome for a dog to easily accept for a name. However, I do recommend "Pop", which is a synonym for Father = God and should suit the ear of a canine beastee very well....as in "Whoa, Pop" or "Dammit, Pop, stop chewing that shoe!"

Too bad you didn't get a pair of em. I plan on getting a pair of huge manly dogs and naming em mop and bucket.

For a single dog I'd say bear, moe, butch, bruce.

People may not like the god name and that wouldn't exactly work out in reverse - dog. Satan or natas sound kinda cool. Natas.

we're down to Hercules or Brick....

Brick is easier to say than Herc, the only problem with brick is the "brains" thingy, but bricks are also dependable and solid....


hmmmm.....

The Nemean Lion

Initially, Hercules was required to complete ten labors, not twelve. King Eurystheus decided Hercules' first task would be to bring him the skin of an invulnerable lion which terrorized the hills around Nemea.


Setting out on such a seemingly impossible labor, Hercules came to a town called Cleonae, where he stayed at the house of a poor workman-for-hire, Molorchus. When his host offered to sacrifice an animal to pray for a safe lion hunt, Hercules asked him to wait 30 days. If the hero returned with the lion's skin, they would sacrifice to Zeus, king of the gods. If Hercules died trying to kill the lion, Molorchus agreed to sacrifice instead to Hercules, as a hero.

When Hercules got to Nemea and began tracking the terrible lion, he soon discovered his arrows were useless against the beast. Hercules picked up his club and went after the lion. Following it to a cave which had two entrances, Hercules blocked one of the doorways, then approached the fierce lion through the other. Grasping the lion in his mighty arms, and ignoring its powerful claws, he held it tightly until he'd choked it to death.

glass, that lion in the img you posted sure looks hungry for a hot dog. He's got his eye on the prize it appears.
