My puppy baby's name!
I posted here before about a name for my girl Portuguese Water Dog puppy that I'm getting soon. I want to decide on a name within the next two days. So here's the poll! What shall I call my much anticipated companion?
Geneva/Gineva: popped into my head just today. Does it work with the nickname Ginny? Or do I need to spell it with an i? And if so, is it too harry potter associated?
Kirrily: nn kirra. I really like how cheerful and energetic is sounds.
Jetta: nn Jett. Jetta is one of my fave girls names. it seems to be a perfect fit - the puppy is all black(jet black), and jets are fast and I plan to do agility with the dog.
Sage: my mom says s is not a hard enough syllable to be a dog name. I do love sage as a name.
Other options include Maisie, Calla, and Jolie.

I could really use some opinions! My worries right now are:
Geneva: should I train her with full name or Ginny? And is Geneva too formal for a dog?
Kirrily: my sister says its weird. And also should I mainly use kirrily or Kirra
Jetta: maybe it's just me but does this sound awkward if you don't pronounce the t? Bc when I say it it's more like Jedda.
Sage: too bland?

Of all the names on your list, I really like Geneva. I don't think its too formal for a pet. I know a dog named Albert Edward called Albie. Most people, for some reason, end up using shorter names for a pet.
Whatever name you choose, you need to train her with the name you are going to use for her most often.
