Pre-home Puppy Names

We haven't really given these puppies a pre-home names yet. Someone gave us a great idea in light of all the Olympics was happening at the time of their birth and after reading Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, why not name some of them after some of the Olympians.

Three boys and one girl.... Well, Kronus had three sons named Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades. Zeus and Poseidon sound pretty cool. Now would would get the misfortune of getting the name Hades, the god of the underworld? Too cruel.

Only one puppy so far as a nickname that has really suck so far. "Jersey Cow", one, because he is the biggest, and two, he is black and while all over like a cow. So for a week now we have been calling him "Jersey Cow". Turns out Jersey cows are brown, not black and white. Holsteins, Randall Cattle, Friesian cattle , British Friesian Cattle, and Belted Galloway cattle are all black and white in colour. Now of these names have the same ring as "Jersey Cow".

The Sable and while puppy looks rather like a Ayrshire cattle, just a thought.

Been trying to think of a really cool female goddess name for the cute little black female besides the obvious one like Aphrodite. Looking for suggestions!

Of course these puppies' don't have to keep these names, just temporary names while they are home with their mommy.

I can't wait for the little personalities to start to emerge.

Secret Lives of Pretty In Pink Dogs


  1. How about Daphne for the little black female? Although it's too early to discern her personality, the way you speak of her makes me think that she's quieter or smaller than the others, so perhaps name her after a Greek nymph rather than a Greek goddess? Daphne did, after all, keep a Greek god (Apollo) forever enchanted with her!

    What a great job Caillee is doing!

  2. That sounds pretty cool. Daphne is for sure a little enchanter.

  3. Nyx means night in Greek. It was the name of the Greek goddess of Khaos and wife of Erebos. Another name hubby suggested.

  4. Oh, Nyx is cute, too, given that this little one is black (night). And every puppy brings a bit of chaos! From no name to choice - nice. :-)

  5. How about Isis? My sister named her black cat Isis, and she was the best cat ever!! Here is the description of Isis:

    Isis was a goddess in Ancient Egyptian religious beliefs, whose worship spread throughout the Greco-Roman world. She was worshiped as the ideal mother and wife as well as the patron of nature and magic. She was the friend of slaves, sinners, artisans, the downtrodden, as well as listening to the prayers of the wealthy, maidens, aristocrats and rulers. Isis is the Goddess of motherhood, magic and fertility.
