54. about the name...

my daughter had her at her apartment for a few days before she brought her over on christmas eve and wasn't crazy about the names given to her by the rescue family (marshmallow and fluffy) so my kid started calling the dog lola.

but she was only "lola" for a few days so my daughter said i should name her whatever i wanted (she was only marshmallow & fluffy for two weeks). so....

we did a brainstorming session and came up with a lot of hysterical crap

my daughter got lola from the kinks song ("l-o-l-a, lola" and i had to point out that the lola in that song was a guy! (my daughter isn't that familiar with the song apparently) but when i heard "lola" i thought of the Copacabana song ("she was a showgirl"

so after they went home i thought of a few names: "christmas," "christmas eve," "noel," and maybe "aspen" but none seemed to work or seemed right. she was very shy & easily spooked so i considered spooky. she's light as a feather so i considered feather & wispy (but they both just sound too funny/stupid--they'll make perfect nicknames for her though). i considered ivy & winter

then i posted this thread

the next morning she kinda freaked out when i tried to put her harness on to go outside--looking at me all wild-eyed, & hopping backwards, wondering who the fu*k i was.....so wylie coyote came to mind. she reminds me of an artic fox (so, of course, "foxy" came to mind)

i like a lot of the names on this thread. creamsicle & eggnog made me lol! so did "privilege." i liked willow because, like i said, she's wispy.

but in all my indecision i realized i was calling her "hey you" & thought that's not good; she'll get used to that. so i fell back on the name my daughter called her-- lola...dun dun dun...("she was a showgirl" and according to the descriptions of this type of dog they were frequently used as show dogs or circus performing dogs, so in a weird way, the name is fitting.)

my kid wanted me to give her a "person" name rather than an "object" or "thing" name. so...i appreciate all the posts & suggestions; they are still under consideration for her MIDDLE name! lol!
