Dog Names Ending in 'me' in Pop Culture
Fame is a lively Border Collie from New Jersey whose actual full name is Fame(us)- spelled exactly like that! Her owners were right to name her Fame and they clearly encouraged her to live up to such a name. You are probably wondering why by now and the reason is that Fame just won the Masters Agility Contest in the world-famous Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in 2018.
The seven year old dog competed in the agility portion of the contest in the most elite division. Full of dogs who can zip over jumps, sprint through tunnels and weave in and out of cones, Fame stood out immediately. While she was one of 77 dogs from New Jersey, she was clearly the fastest and the time clock proved this as well. Fame completed a difficult agility course in under thirty seconds. Her time not only crowned her the winner of this year's contest but it also beat last year's winner (who was also a Border Collie) - she ran the course almost three seconds faster which is significant in agility contests where every second matters!
Fame's owner, Jessica Ajoux has been training Fame since the dog was a puppy. Jessica is no stranger to dog training either and has been working with dogs since she was 15. She is also a professional trainer, teaching other people how to coax their dogs through difficult agility courses. However, Jessica clearly has the fastest dog to call her own! With a unicorn collar and a stuffed unicorn in her stall for good luck, lots of training and luck seemed to help Fame as she ran this course!
Fame and Jessica won a $10,000 prize when they placed first in the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show but that money will be donated in Fame's name to a Club approved obedience center. While Jessica said Fame will get to take a short break, the duo will be back to training for more competitions and looking to add more ribbons to their wall. Upon winning, Jessica said to Fame, "Fame, you won the big ribbon!" to which the dog likely wagged her tail.
Dog Name Ending in 'me' Considerations
There are 'me' names with a wide variety of meanings and the reasoning behind a name is something you should definitely think about. For example, if your dog is brown, you may want to skip the name Graeme which stands for 'grey'. Think about the color of your dog as well as their personality when you assess 'me' name meanings.
How a name sounds when you say it out loud is certainly something to consider as well. A 'me' name that looks good on paper may not sound so dog-friendly when you yell it out your back door repeatedly. Say the name multiple times before assigning it permanently to your dog. If you have other dogs, think about how your new pup's 'me' name will mesh with their new siblings. After all, you want a nice cohesive dog pack - this means the name should mesh well too!
