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....

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!"

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.

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.

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.

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...

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.
