If this list has inspired you to do further research yourself, then think about what is unique to your puppy (E.G. a habit, personal trait, or something about their appearance) and look up the names that represent that quality. Look at names in a different language or get a list from your friends and family and see if there’s one out of those you like the sound of. Whatever you choose, have fun and good luck in finalising your choice.
