Boxers, boxers, boxers, and anything with a smushy nose, really, especially bulldogs (British and French). Love Newfoundlands, too.
I have two boxers: Greta and Philipp
I love "human" names for pets and would consider any baby name "reject." I especially like "old lady" names that haven't come back into favor. Names that "find" you are the best. Greta was on a short list and was confirmed when a typo for "great" came in an e-mail response from a friend re: the name selection process.
I'm saving these for future use (should I be brave enough to get another female boxer, as ours is quite the opinionated lady):
Margery (to be paired with Captain, from a tombstone in the coastal town where our boxers were born)
Phyllis (misunderstood to be Greta's name by a neighborhood boy hearing us call for Philipp)

I love bulldogs (English and French!) but they're sooo expensive, so I won't be getting one for a long time. My next puppy will be a dachshund or mini-dachshund, I love them too! Basically any quirky looking dog - smooshed noses or tiny legs and long bodies like doxies and corgis - and mutts!
But since I picked out a dachshund breeder for when I get my puppy I had to pick out names, right?? He or she will have a doxie friend named Wednesday, so I have to come up with something equally awesome. And I wanted to combine my art history knowledge in there and have dogs named after artists, so...
For a boy:
Picasso (owned a doxie named Lump pron. LOOMP)
Duncan (a photographer who gave Picasso his doxie)
Warhol (owned 2 doxies, Amos and Archie, but also probably my least favorite artist ever)
Hockney (owned 2 doxies and did a whole book worth of art based on them)
Bonnard (pron. Boh-NAHRD, also painted doxies. Possible nn Bones)
Bonaparte (non art-related, but Napoleon owned dachshunds, and they have Napoleon complexes a lot! Also possible NN Bones)
Waldi (first mascot of the Olympic games was a dachshund named Waldi, I think pron. VAHL-dee)
For a girl:
Balla (pron. BAH-luh, rhymes with FDR's dog Fala - painted a dachshund)
Badgley or Mischka (clothing designers are kind of artists... and they own 2 dachshunds)

Malti-poo! Brown, so that it looks like a teddy bear. And ideally the name should be Edgar. But these have been considered:
The Count of Monte *username* (NN Count)
Panama Red (The name of an old Indian friend)
EDIT: The new ideal name for [^the same^] is: Sir Hannibal Mungo (NN Sir Hibals)

My favorite dog breed
I would have to say that my favorite breed is a German Shepherd. I have had a soft spot for those because I had one from birth until I was nine years old. Most people are afraid of German Shepherds because they think their mean but I think that they are loyal and loving. My favorite dog names are:
