I a picking up a 2 yr old male black lab shelter dog today. He does not have a name quite yet. I envision him being my "old fishing dog" some day and think he needs an appropriate name. I live in Ithaca NY these days, and some of my favorite times were spent fishing and hiking in the Smokies. Anyone got a good smokies fly fishing dog names?

Current names for family debate including fishing/old man names:
Townsend,
Winston,
Fin,
Sam,
Otis,
Porter,
Max,
Willie,
Bill.

Thanks in advance.

How about Rhodo for all the Rhododendron prevalent along the Smokey Streams?

I have long thought that the name "Tremont" would be cool for a dog.

I've always preferred to spend a couple of days getting to know a new dog before giving him/her a permanent name. That way you can find a name that fits the dog and not try to make the dog fit a particular name. Somehow the dog will let you know what its name should be.

I think Enloe would have a nice ring to it.:smile:

Ramsay, Lester, or Meigs if it's a girl.

If you have a bad sense of humor - Maybe Paw Paw, or Cat Stair's (or Stares):rolleyes:

Then again and it doesn't have anything to do with fishing unless the dog may cause some during a trip, but I like the "Mayhem". It's a good name for a standout linebacker in football,,, but it could work for a dog.

Devil's courthouse, devil's tater patch, desolation, big butt, white man's glory, maggot ridge, mollie's butt.... Lots of colorful smokies names indeed. And all ones you would want to be yelling out your back door to call your new dog....:biggrin:

Yeah, I can just imagine the neighbor's, or for that matter, some poor fellow flyfisher's reactions now. "Hey Big Butt! Come Big Butt, come!":biggrin:

Dogs usually do best with two syllable names. I agree that you may want to have him around for a couple days before you try out names with him

"Rocky" for all the slick rocks I have fallen on while fishing in the GSMNP.

How about Cosby?

My suggestion is Hobble (as in Doghobble Branch), not to cast aspersions upon his agility, of course. I believe the vine is so named from bear and possibly other game running into it to escape hunter’s dogs.

"Smokey" might about say it all.

On second thought, I like Smokey or Smoky suggested by Corbo and Silvercreek respectively. Of the the two, I suggest Smoky, so that when you call him, the famous bear and bluetick won't come to you instead. :smile:

If you prefer Brook Trout vs the bows or brown I would go with Brook,
or Thunder(head).

How about LRO?

As long as your wife isn't in the room when you say it, you'll be fine. If your wife (girlfriend, sister, mother, is; however, anywhere within earshot, I'll deny ever seeing this thread...:smile:

Back on topic, our first dog was named Bud after Bud Ogle's place up at the beginning of the Motor Nature Trail. Bud was a beagle and it seemed fitting.

Hey Rocky Hill Angler, It's been almost a week since you picked up your new dog and I was wondering what you decided on for a name...just wondering

I once had two German Shepards named Thunder and Lightnin'. How about Cade or Cades?
