A Name?

I'm going to be getting a new puppy in a few weeks...it is a jack russell terrier and a male and i'm having the hardest time trying to think of a name! Any suggestions?

Let him name himself. If you give hime a day or two it will become obvious.

We named our puppy "Sammi" (she's a girl) b/c my husband wanted a dog the size of a sandwich! He'd hold up what he would pretend would be a puppy, and then take a bite out of it because "it'll be so scrumptious!" So, she became Sammi, actually long before we had even picked her out.

There's no right answer, but just think of how you refer to the puppy now, and how you imagine him. It doesn't have to be serious or even a "real" name.

Good luck! Pups are great! But, tiring!!

thanks for all the suggestions! I was thinking Rusty because he has a black-brown spot on his ear and eye and it's like he's "rusting" lol but i like a lot of these ideas!

I always liked Barkley, except it would screw things ups in training (no barking Barkely !!!!!).
My ex always liked the name BJ, well .... for obvious reasons ....
