    Default New dog name

    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.
    Fly fishing - it's cheaper than a bass boat!

    I think Enloe would have a nice ring to it.

    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)

    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.
