Moby needs a new name...

I'm not really fond of the name Moby. Moby sounds like a name you would give a dopey looking mutt, not an elegant, powerful greyhound. We have a few names that may work, let me know what you think.

Red- His color is actually known as Red, so we thought this may be a fitting name for him.

Dane- Because he looks like a Great Dane

Corona- Because he's the golden color of Corona beer......which John and I are big fans of!

His racing name is "Above and Beyond (Rooftop Moby)"

If you need a visual.......

i like dane. they always say to try and stay with one or two syllable names for dogs ifyou can. its easier for them to recognize.. good luck in your decision. he is cute!

Shannon said...

Oh he's sweet! I like one syllable names for dog's, too.

I'm not good at picking out pet's names! I do like Dane though! I'm sure whatever you decide will fit him just fine!

I just saw that you had to give Costello back...so sorry! I know with rescues that with all the transitions that a name change along with a new owner might add stress to the mix....maybe wait a few months then change? Or keep Moby! I think it sounds like a cuddly, lover dog's name....

Just wanted to say I love your new grey baby! I have a red fawn as well! I wish you all the best!

I like Dane and Corona. Since he is red and fast you could call him "Red Rocket" which is the slang term for Budweiser! And call him "Red" for short... hee hee! :)

Happy Mother's Day ♥ !

(Our dog's name is Bogey...like one over par in golf!)

I've been trying all this time to come up with something creative and realize that I'm terrible at thinking of names. I like Dane and Red though...

Michelle said...

Yep, I'd go with Corona! Miss those in this preggo state! HEY, I tagged you. Have fun!

Mike said...

I'm voting Red, as in Red and Rover.

Moby - a whalers name, I agree it is not a good dog for your gorgeous new pup. My hubby likes "Sport" or "Sargeant"... hummm. Dane is good. Hugs!
