    Name for future Chinese Crested or Italian Greyhound!

    This June I will be turning seventeen. Then, from there, it'll be a year ling count down to when I am able to get my Hairless Chinese Crested or Italian Greyhound puppy.
    When I was thirteen-going-on-fourteen, I made a vow to myself that I would buy myself a puppy for my eighteenth birthday. And I have kept that vow until now.
    I've been thinking about names of a pup from either breed...but haven't had any luck. (This will be my SO, Aaron, and I's first dog ttogether. )
    Anyways, if we got a Chinese Crested, so we hope, it would be a male and a female Italian Greyhound. We would love suggestions for an unique, exotic name for either breed.

    Thank you!

    I love Italian greyhounds since seeing them in Renaissance paintings. I like Italian names for this breed.

    Giacomo nn Como
    Lucia - nn Lucy
    Lorenzo nn Enzo
    Apollo - nn Poe
    Marco
    Silvia
    Cosima - nn Sima
    Gaetano - nn Guy
    Romeo
    Franco - nn Frankie
    Rocco - nn Rocky
    Gemma - nn Gem
    Bianca - nn Bee or Anca
    Ginevra - nn Ginny
    Matteo - nn Teo
    Dante
    Nicolo - nn Nico
    Aldo
    Cosmo
    Violetta - nn Etta
    Massimo - nn Simo

    Chinese Crested are even more delicate looking than the Italian greyhounds.

    Ming/Ling- female
    Yu - male
    Shen - male
    Jin - male
    Bo - female
    Lian - female
    Gan - male
    Manchu - male
    Mei Lee- female
    All the best,
    Mischa.

    It's tough getting responses to pet names, isn't it!

    For anything Chinese, I like the idea of Chinoiserie and Serie is a darling call name. (It is pronounced sir-REE.)
    Ling (delicate)
    Bao (precious)
    Lian (graceful)
    Mei (beautiful)
    Tao (especially if you love poetry or philosophy)
    Beijing

    Names that just seem right:
    June
    Lake
    Moon
    Luna
    Rococo
    Deco
    Diva

    I can also see naming a powder puff (should you get one) Powder.

    For your Italian Greyhound, hmm. I think of Frederick because Frederick the Great loved these little dogs. As far as Italian goes, several names are becoming fashionable or would just be cute for this dog.

    Titus
    Maximus (This is fun because of the irony of giving it to an IG.)
    Tiberius
    Leonardo
    Bruno (again, irony)
    Orlando
    Pompeii
    Rome
    Tesoro (treasure, but unfortunately, in my area a gas station!)
    Amato
    Caro
    Lux
    Giovane
    Garzone
    Micro (which is one Italian word for miniature)

    I'd love to hear what you finally decide. I hope others are inspired to make some suggestions.

    After waiting so long, be sure you get your dog from a reputable breeder and not a puppy mill.
