Contest Tuesday...Name my puppy!

Saturday is the big day...

My daughter and I picked out this female, red, long-haired daschund in early June from a breeder about an hour away.  She'll be ready to come home with us on Saturday, but my family has not been able to agree on a name! 

I would love to have some kind of "literary" name for my sweet puppy.  I suggested "Virgina Woolf," as a name, but my family didn't see the humor in that. 

What better group of people to have help me with a name than a bunch of fiction writers?  You come up with names for your characters all the time.  Some of you even research your character names extensively.  Take a look at that adorable face and tell me what name comes to mind.  If the name of one of your favorite characters or authors might also make a good name for a dog, let me know that, too.

If my family picks the name you suggest, I'll send you a $10.00 gift card from Starbucks!  Okay, even if my family doesn't agree with any of the names the Fiction Flurry audience suggests, I'll still send a gift card to the person who comes up with the most original name.

This Saturday, I'll post a new picture of the puppy once she's home and let you know what name we picked along with the winner's name.  Good luck!


  1. OMG!!! Absolutely, positively TOO cute! Where did you find her? She is PRECIOUS! Shame on you for not sharing the big news with us sooner! I have to say, I do believe Bijoux is somewhat prejudiced on the subject, as her own Mama was a doxie! Now for the name...hmmm...Pippi Longstocking was a redhead! And, for a great source of other famous redheads, check out Congratulations on the new member of the family!

  2. Holy...crap....I want to snuggle that animal until the end of all time! SO CUTE!! Okay. Names. Pippi is a really cute one, hmmm... Penelope? Or for a more literary name, Hester Prynne? LOL!

    Just please, do NOT name her Bella.

  3. Bartleby.
    Wait, it's a female?

  4. How about Scout? (To Kill a Mockingbird). I think she looks like a Scout. I can't wait to see her and smell her puppy breath :)

  5. I'm a couple days late on this post, but I agree with Jen, Scout is wonderful. And lol @ Amy on the Bella comment. :)
