Introduction

The naming of that new puppy can seem like a tall, fog-shrouded mountain looming in the distance, complete with all of the unknown "terrors" associated with that goal.  When you're faced with this type of challenge, you basically have two main choices:  back away or forge ahead.  Of course, the easier of the two is to just back off and pick a generic name, but, I ask you, is that fair to that sweet, darling little bundle of love sleeping peacefully in your lap?  Aren't their names just as important as ours?   Don't they deserve a name tailored to them that shows that some thought and consideration given in that selection?  You bet they do!  And, in that vein, we'd like to invite you to let us help equip you to forge ahead toward that fog-shrouded mountain.

Dog Names Ending in 'ie' Considerations

While it's true that the name possibilities are truly endless, it really doesn't need to be looked upon as such an overwhelming task, especially if you can keep it in the proper perspective.  For example, many people facing this challenge are able to isolate name possibilities based upon some characteristics of the canine in question ... coat color, coat texture, breed, gender, size or personality.  Once they have done the "divide and conquer" thing, then they have a smaller zone in which to focus.  It's like spring cleaning your house ... if you look at the big picture, the task can seem almost impossible ... but ... if you break the task down into individual rooms, the whole scenario can change immediately!  If you forge ahead with a plan, you'll be more successful and considerably less stressed.  But, maybe the coat, color, and breed aren't really areas in which you care to focus, or, maybe you've come up dry when trying this step.  It is in this area that we'd like to help - we'd like to suggest another path to travel - the alphabet.  May we suggest looking for names, or creating variations of some of your favorite names to end in "ie", either in the physical spelling or in the sound of "ie or y".  Stop and consider this ... you could literally turn any name into one that ends in "ie" simply by changing the spelling and adding the "ie".  Did that start some creative juices flowing?  Go ahead, try it and have fun with it.  One caution though, remember to consider what that new name will sound like when you find yourself calling her from across the dog park, from down the street or from several blocks away, to avoid embarrassing situations.
