The reason a dog has so many friends is that he wags his tail instead of his tongue.

Strange how we think alike. I just checked my post of yesterday, because the previous post about a Turkish name brought Agia Sophia into my head, and prompted me to write in the first place. Sophia of course is a wisdom goddess, and IMHO sufficiently regal for a standard poodle :-)

Although the great historic cathedral in Istanbul doesn't have much red, especially since Turks whitewashed over the icons after converting it into a mosque (it's now a museum being restored), its splendor for centuries dazzled visitors to Byzantium/Constantinople/Istanbul. The source? Gold, and lots of it, for it was previously restored after sacks by (Christian mostly in name) Crusaders, as well as Turks. And your pup's apricot coat may resemble gold as well as fire.....

Jane.

If it's to be a French name, I kind of like Boudreaux (BooBoo, but then I'm kind of partial as that was my toy poodles name) I looked up the word strawberry (in French) it is fraise.I think thats a cute (red) name for a French poodle. I very much like just plain ol' strawberry. I also liked Janes ideas.

I like the name Cherie, it is a french name too. Or Rose. My girl Marley is apricot colored so I call her Marmalade sometimes. I also had a very sweet orange striped cat I named Ginger too.

Have you tried saying several of the suggested names and looking at your dog's response? I've heard dogs respond best to names (or nicknames) ending with a vowel sound. IMHO a dog that doesn't like its name might not listen. In any event, one of my adopted dogs didn't like her shelter name, Brandy, nor was I about to go around the neighborhood shouting that name if she ever got loose. She had a regal personality, especially when looking at me from her favorite couch perch, so I thought about queens and goddesses and couches, and her ears perked up at "Cleo". As you might know from reading the poodle talk thread, she passed away several years ago. Her successor also didn't like her sheltername, Daisy. Since the shelter thought that a poodle/lhasa mix lie under her mats, I thought about Eastern names. Tara perked up her ears at my saying the name of the Buddhist goddess of compassion (misprounounced according to Asian friends!) .

IMHO, you might have named or nicknamed your dog already, inadvertently. While my namefinding phases took a week or two, I can't imagine not talking with a dog for two months. So your dog might think she's named "hey you" or "cutiepie" or "barkpuppy" or something. emoticon But if you like placenames, the Anasazi peoples built kivas and other structures into the red cliffs at Chaco Canyon (including along what became Chacra road and Acoma) in New Mexico and Kayenta in Arizona, after emerging from Shibapu.

BTW, Tara says her apricot standard poodlegalpal's name is Asia, and her white standard pal and her BPF are both Chloes, so those names are taken. She says standards can be quite regal, though her male standard pals are Ben and Charlie.

Jane. emoticon

I have a new red standard poodle and she really needs a name. I was trying to base it on her color or maybe a city with lots of red in it. Any ideas ? Thanks so much. I have had her 2 months now , poor thing
