Name the Newf Contest

Welcome to the Name the Newf Contest!

I'm sponsoring this contest to generate names - and hopefully a winning one - for our new Newfoundland puppy. The person who suggest the name that sticks and becomes her name will win an item from my etsy store. You can choose anything under $20.

The contest ends when we've chosen our puppy's name.

** Participate as many times as you like, but please only once per day. A serious name that befits a large, dignified individual is most likely to stick. She may be small now, but in a few months, she'll be 100lb behemoth! Remember leave a way for me to contact you if you win.



She looks like KARMA to me!
Instant karma... as Lennon sang about. Gonna get ya!


Instant karma, as sung by John Lennon.
Not dogma.
Definitely not dogma.

The name Winston struck me straight away!

ashley said...

she looks like Madame Elsibeth du Poppington to me. But then my cats names are Anthrax and KGB, so you probably don't want to listen to my suggestion! :)

My vote is Zora

HillaryDenise said...

Cutest puppy ever!

My vote: Livia. She was the wife of Augustus. I like the name, it sounds dignified to me.

Yes, I'm a geek.

Verlaine is what I would name such a dog

SquirrelGurl said...

How about Kailey?



Stormy The Sheltie said...

Mom picked my name b/c I looked like a little Storm Cloud.

You should name her "June" cause that's the month you got to meet her!

Propter Doc said...


She is wonderful!

Pretty Pear Designs said...

I think that she looks like an Eleanor!

What a cute puppy - have fun with her!

Psychgrad said...

I don't know if it's just the picture, but she has a very serious look about her. Kind of like human babies that you can easily picture as an adult.

I think she should be called Margaret. Maggie for short.

Cherry Lane Jane said...

She looks like a Sammy to me!

Bunny B said...


or Spumoni

I like Moose.

cozysister said...

He looks like such a teddy bear, so I'd go with Ursa. What a cutie!

SquirrelGurl said...

What about Motor?

Field Notes said...

Now that is original - MOTOR. He he - I think that has charm. I'm not saying it's destined to be a winner, but it could easily get stuck in the head =D

B said...

or Jane after Jane Goodall (because you are in to primates?)

Waterrose said...

I see wrinkles now...I know she'll grow out of them...but I would name her Wrinkles.

Ok, (Big breath intake) here I go. My submission is Hallie Max, or Hallie M.
ie=tail end of Katie
Max is to honor First Brother, even after he is gone. And even once the baby's name has gone to just Hallie, Mom and dad will know Max(ine) is still there, having paved the road for young Hallie.
You know who this is, of course.

Field Notes said...

Yes, of course ;=)

Field Notes said...

Hallie is so similar sounding to Holly tho.

I have no idea why this popped into my head, but my suggestion is Maribell.

Marian said...

SHe looked instantly like an "Olivia" to me. Dont know why....

DAMdesigns LoveEtsyFeedback TagsAndButtons said...

Ohh so cute!


That is my pick =D

Mishkat said...

I like people names for animals, so instantly thought Matilda, but someone else already picked that. I really like Ursula too (already picked as well!)

So I'm suggesting Nadya (short for Nadezhda) - can also be spelled Nadia.

Lola Lynn said...

When I saw your little cutie I thought "Black Beauty." That's a little too common so how about "Bella Noir."

She looks so adorable.

I like the suggested name Karma.

My boyfriend and I are planning to buy a Newf or Shiloh Shepherd pup next spring/summer. So we're thinking of large breed, intelligent names with personality...

Her photo makes her look like as thinker. I suggest Echo.

Good luck!

(Don't ask me why).

ekneverfeltbetter said...

How beautiful! I think I might name her Cadeau (gift in French!)

I put in my two cents wishes to you and your new addition...she's gorgeous!

Anonymous said...

Weelll, you could name her 'Tinker' (after me--Ha)
How 'bout "Bingo'....or 'Talulah'..


woolies said...

She is beautiful.
Agatha. or
Tiny. or
Itsy (as in Itsy Bitsy, which she is not)

And your Max is beautiful too.
We have four dogs:
Teddy Bear
Buster and
boo (who is very little).

MotherofJackals said...

I think she looks like a Marmalade.

Pickle Pot Studio said...
