It’s hard not to name something that you love. Like I said in the last blog post Bringing Home Puppy: Nesting, just from watching videos and looking at pictures of our pup, my girls and I had already falling for the fluff bucket. So a week or two before meeting him, the entire family started suggesting names. And lots of them! My goal was to have the list down to five names before meeting the first time. That didn’t happen.

Here’s the longlist:

Lincoln
Moose
Shadow
Reeny
Neo
Zorro
Sirius
Pepper
Powhite
Chief
Smokey
Einstein
Took
Huckleberry
Fosco
Farkle
Rolo
Thorin
Zero
Frodo
Rohan
Zeus
Caesar
Gimli
Bandit
Apollo
Poncho
Wookie
Augustus “Auggie”
Tubby
Pippin
Odysseus
Odin
Odus
Gilly
Samson
Griffin
Gandalf
Arrow
Atticus
Ace
Titan
Merlin
Gizmo
Stemzee
Tonto

Second Longlist:

Shadow
Zorro
Tonto
Smokey
Huckleberry
Frodo
Zeus
Caesar
Poncho
Wookie

Having been shortlisted and longlisted in my writing, I can appreciate the beauty of the short list. I think the family and I did a good job in culling the selection.

Caesar
Frodo
Smokey
Tonto
Shadow

We met the puppy! Our puppy. FUTURE BLOG POST COMING! Without further ado, the pup’s name is:
