How did you choose your cockapoos name ? :D

We made a list of fav names together and then agreed on our fav.

There was only the two of us so we were lucky as I know from others experience that the more people you have to please the harder it can be!!

I knew we were getting a puppy 3 weeks before the children did so I started to make a list. We have had a few pets with sweetie names - a brown cat called Minstel, a cream guinea pig called marshmallow (marshy for short!) and a black guinea pig called liquorice so I wanted to continue the theme maybe. From what I remember my list was
Poppy
Daisy
Crumble
Lolly (short for Lollypop)
and maybe a few more

We told the children we were getting a puppy about an hour before we left to collect her so I gave them the list and said they could choose. It was decided that we had to have chosen a name by the time we got home again and Lolly was everyone's favourite :D

Yes I like having a theme both of mine are M names and I have another M name I love incase we ever get a 3rd one day ( wishful thinking)

Like Lolly- it's a bit different too :)

Three of us sat down and tried to think of some names. I like Molly, but no one else did. Then Evie was popular and something else.

But once we collected Millie, I decided that she felt like a Millie and that wasn't on our list at all !!

Funnily enough with Janet calling her's Lolly and both our dogs socialise, I do get rather tongue tied with Lolly & Millie and I often end up saying Molly or Lilly :confused:

We had lots of boy's names that we liked but struggled more with girl's names. When it was decided we were having Dizzy we realised it would cause too much confusion n our house having a daughter called Lizzie. Daisy seemed like a similar enough name but also different! It was also a name I considered for my eldest daughter so thankfully we all liked it. I am sure I caught my husband calling her Dizzy this morning though! :D

I loved the name Daisy but that was our Cavvie's name who had to be put to sleep earlier this year so didn't want another Daisy and as Beau is my daughter's pup I said it was up to her! She liked the name Tallulah but when we brought Beau home and she called her we realised it was too long and would only be shortened to Tally! The second favourite was Beau but people said it is a boys name but we found out it could be either and can't be shortened so Beau it is :D

Do any of you have a name in your head which you would like to call your next dog? I don't want to know it, but I think that shows if you are really cockapoo'ed ...


I have three secret names in mind :) :) :) oh dear that speaks volumes really ...

On the drive to go and get her we toyed with many names....then once we had her in the car, and my very cocker looking little baby looked to my husband just like Lady from Lady and the Tramp so we named her Lady....I liked the name lilly alot but he wasn't keen and since he didn't really want a dog, I decided letting him name her would be good for them both.

When I decided we were going to have a cockapoo, Ciara wanted a chocolate, I wanted a blonde so I said she could name her. Lottie it was, but after we chose pup, the males of the house, who until then hadn't taken much notice, announced they didn't like it. We each wrote 1 name down and had a vote, AV system and Izzy beat Maggie by a whisker, which was good as Ciara didn't like Maggie at all, but everyone liked Izzy, and it suits her :D

I had Lottie on my puppy naming list, but went off it when I met a cocker spaniel called Lottie ... Izzy is a lovely name .. good choice

May be Maggie for your next dog .. the chocolate one ha ha ha ...

we picked the name before the puppy, and the min i saw her she just looked like a cute little fluffy Flossy, of cause the little kids of my clan did pick some strange and wonderful names like thunder, jaws, pretty princess, rainbow and many many more x

baby name books, we just kept coming back to Gypsy, mum wanted to call her willow but i didn't want anyone to say my dog was named after a character from TV.

Inca was found when researching a breed that i couldn't remember the name of English bull terrier, i found an article about a white one that got into a fight with a porcupine its face covered in 30 something spikes from it, the dog was named Inca which we thought was a bit silly for a white dog but suited a, ink black dog perfectly.


when looking for Echos name we were wanting to keep the them we had running of groups or tribes you get the Gypsy travelers, and you hear lots about the Incas who historians are always researching. then we thought we knew she was black and white so had Panda, Chess, magpie, their was another but i cant remember. but we came up with Echo and i liked it because n my head (this was all before she was born) i was thinking she would have and Echo of black on her white coat (don't know if that makes sense)

i had said a firm no to the name Delta when looking for another colour as it didn't suite the colour. but i remember being in the cats at work after we had decided we were taking her, thinking what name would fit her and Delta just fitted, it was just perfect for her.

i wanted a name that wasn't one that friends had called their children. so i started thinking and as i knew the only dog i wanted was cockapoo i quickly came across Betty Boo which just stuck and the breeder started calling her it once i'd picked her so that was it chosen!!!
