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.

Brian

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 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.

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
