Hey PPK, we thought we had picked a good name out for our dog (Dagmar!) but then we met her and it doesn't suit her at all! So we've been thinking lots and have come up with names we like, but now we can't narrow it down. Help us name our dog!

Here she is, for context:

Oh, she's soooooo cute!!! My vote is for Dottie, because I think that's an adorable yet feisty name. And it makes me think of "A League of Their Own" which is a fantastic movie.

I like when dogs have people names that aren't often used as dog names so I voted for Susan. But she's adorable and would be with any name!

I like when dogs have people names that aren't often used as either dog OR people name, and that's why I like Dottie ;)

She is so cute and lovely looking!

I always wanted to name a dog Spot, so that when I let it out I could say "Out, out Damned Spot", but my spouse wants to name a dog Stains so we can shout "Come Stains!" Fortunately, we are both allergic and will never have a dog.

You could get a pair of fish. The futility of it all would guarantee endless repetitions.

I voted for Joni. Two syllables that are easily recognizable that and it doesn't sound like a command you would use. Dottie falls into this category nicely but her face looks more like a Joni to me.

I LOVE HER SO MUCH!

I voted for Sara because it sounds classic and sweet and she looks like that too, but I think Dottie would be adorable!

Thanks guys! Trevor has nixed Dottie because we plan to have her go to the office with him (he has a dog-friendly work environment) and someone else has a Dottie already!

Allegedly cats can be trained? What about pigs? That would be adorable. A spotted pig named Stains :D

Also I read this post out loud to my partner who immediately asked if we could rename the dog Stains.

Since Dottie is out, I changed my vote to Martha. As Moon said, two syllable names seem to work best, and it's super cute.

We still couldn't decide so we put all the names in a hat, she pulled one out and took it to her bed -- Joni it is! Thanks everyone!

Not sure if anyone will get this reference, but the name Stains immediately made me think of this:

WELCOME JONI!!!

(I couldn't decide so I didn't vote but I'm glad she has a name now so I can scream that)
