    I just adopted a female all black border collie from the humane society, and I'm throwing around a couple names.

    1. Mesa

    2. Boogie

    Does this make me a dork?
     
  2. if you're a dork, you're a dork- a pet name won't change that. Personally I'd never name an animal something *musical* - I don't need people to know I'm a musician, unless I'm playing. At that point I hope it's obvious.
    I do give you huge props for giving this dog a reprieve from a potential death sentence.

    Yes.

    You should name the dog Hosehead.

    No.

    My pets names:
    Julius (tried to sneakily name him after a Phish song and the rest followed)
    Cleopatra
    Brutus
    Maximus Decimus Meridius, Commander of the Armies of the North
     
  5. I also like that(Hosehead)better, but if you use it because I or anyone else thinks you should, you are a dork. I only tell because you need to know. That, and you asked. :)

    This ^

    And that ^


    I don't envision "Boggie" as a female dog's name, but "Mesa" isn't too bad (in my opinion). With either of those names, the only people likely to recognize them as being music-related are other musicians.

    The bottom line is...
    Name her whatever you want. She's your pup.
     
  8. Nah. As long as you don't name him Captain Foofy-pants, you'e cool.

    Mesa or Boogie sound like poor pet names to me, male or female, but its your dog.

    What does make you a dork is that your username reads as a plot of land for raising boners. Also, a dork is a whale's penis.

    edit: I should use a smiley :D

    Well if its not a musical reference, it will probably be a video game reference, so I guess that makes me a full blooded dork.
     
  11. Agreed.

  13. Given your username, I think "Shot" is appropriate.

    "Come..."

    Oh dear
     
  15. I like "Boogie". At least it will make the neighborhood kids giggle when they hear it, confusing it with the crusted snot from inside one's nose.

    You're officially a music dork when you adopt a second dog and use BOTH names.

    My wife informed me that the names of our next 2 German Shepherds will be Zeppelin and Zappa...I can't wait! Yes, I'm a dork and married one.

    I'm sure or friendly Moderator, MAJOR METAL, would approve. He named one of his Beagle pups "Metallica".

    Those sound like cool names for German Shepards.
