I'm sure you've seen the pics on FB, we are taking the plunge and getting a dog. She'll be with us in May if all goes well and healthy. If you want to know more about the breed/breeder just ask. I have no desire to get long winded or start a debate. We did explore rescue before deciding to buy a dog.

So we are thinking of names... for this little girl https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?...4458847&type=1

DH and I like Maisey (Mazy)
Maddie likes Lily, but I don't want to name a dog after a person or someone she (or we) knows.

Other names we like are Meily, Kali, Coralie, (notice the "ie, ey, ee" trend of cutsie names)

I'd love to hear any ideas you ladies have!

This is the breed (and yes we are aware of the health issues with this, and many other breeds we looked into)

I like people names for my animals so umm I like Maisey....some of my top picks for a girl dog would be Hazel, Millie, Genevieve, Gretchen, Greta, Ruby, Janey, I could go on but you get the gist LOL. Syd insists if we get a girl dog next go round her name will be Olivia or Kaycee, she has said that for ages lol......she is cute! My friend has two of those, they are super sweet, slightly hyper but most dogs are. Their names are Pierre and Norman haha

I have a friend with three cavaliers. They are so cute! Their names are Happy, Lucky, and Chance. Of the names on your list, I really like Maisey best.

People name wise we have been rolling around: Lacey, Avery, Zoey, Amber, Hailey, Callie and Miley (again).

My husband thinks naming a child was easier. (I think because you didn't need the approval of a 5 year old LOL)

I like people names for dogs. I like Maisey and Sadie.

We have a golden retriever named Maya. We almost went with Delaney but, then watched Eight Below and fell in love with the name Maya.

Maisey & Daphne.

I've always wanted to name a dog Daphne. We almost used it for my dog but it didn't fit her.

I like Maisey the best of your list.

With 2 out of the 3 dogs that I've had, I named them after I had them at home. I had a really hard time choosing names and ended up going off of their personality. My first pug was Boo because she was always sneaking up behing me and catching me off guard. My current pug is Bounce because she was literally bounding off the walls when we got her home.

So maybe keep your short list of names and then see what fits best when you meet her. That worked for me when we named Aidan.
