Silly dog names

We are a very silly family and here are the silliest name or name origins my family suggested my dog will be called. The dog will come with a name. What we end up calling the dog unofficially remains to be seen, but I promise you, it won't be Maul. ;)

Horrid names
Darth Maul or Maul for short
Darth Vader
Poo Money (a feature in Lego Star Wars)
Coldstone
InNOut

Silly Names
Cat
Dog
YMCA
Squeaky
Otter

Not so bad
Jag (comes from Jaguar being a fierce animal is not the best name for a service dog)
Yoda
Edward
Percy
Lady
and all the other two syllable train engine names in Thomas except Thomas

Confusing
Names of various family members that are two syllables.

This kept my kids amused for a good 1/2 hour.

Silly names indeed.

I once bet on a dog in a grayhound race named Supercat. And he won!

(I like the Thomas names)

Thomas names are really quite nice names. I wouldn't mind any of them except Lady. I just would think it strange if the person said the dog was named after a Thomas character. :)

Go with Yoda!

I have a Wookie (named by previous owners, but it's still funny).

We had a cat named Drippy because she drooled a LOT as a youngster.

Ooh cute names! Yoda may end up being a nickname. I haven't see any Yodas being turned in, but ya never know. :)

Cat, if you don't have a cat.

You can't name a dog YMCA because you will inevitably call him/her Y and then every time a small child asks "why" the dog will come running. Or maybe not becuase service dogs are well trained. Which is why they are the only dogs I am not afraid of by default. But the dog will want to go running and that's just not fair.

Actually I like the Thomas and Friends names. Percy especially. Although it will sound more like a Harry Potter commentary than a Thomas one.

You're right. YMCA should be in the confusing names for the dog. For a well trained dog, you use the dog's name to get the dog's attention then issue a command such as COME(come here) etc.

A young friend of ours really wanted to name their dog "Mini Maul" (as in Darth Maul)

He was outvoted ;)
