My wife and I are looking to adopt a chocolate lab puppy, and we're having difficulty coming up with names for her.

SO...

Does anyone have any good shooting or gun related names for a female dog?

I've come up with Benelli, but I'm not sold ( at least it would give me leverage to convince my wife I need a new shotgun, as I don't own a Benelli)

my hunting lab (RIP buddy) came from a place called Tomahawk kennels .. his registered name was Tomahawk's Gun Thunder .. aka Thunder .. thought about that often when I was shooting ..

Love the name BROWNing for a chocolate lab .. or trigger :)

Go with Coco as it will honor the USS Coco (SP-110), a civilian motorboat in Florida waters in 1917, prior to her United States Navy service.
Career (United States)
Name: USS Coco
Namesake: Previous name retained
Builder: Albany Boat Corporation, Watervliet, New York
Completed: 1917
Acquired: 23 June 1917[1]
Commissioned: 23 July 1917
Struck: 23 June 1919
Fate: Sold, 5 August 1919
Wrecked prior to delivery to new owner, 9-10 September 1919
Notes: Operated as private motorboat Coco, 1917
General characteristics
Type: Patrol vessel
Length: 36 ft (11 m)
Speed: 26 kn (30 mph; 48 km/h)

USS Coco (SP-110) was an armed motorboat that served in the United States Navy as a patrol vessel from 1917-1919.

Coco was built as a civilian motorboat in 1917 by the Albany Boat Corporation at Watervliet, New York. The U.S. Navy acquired Coco from her owner, W.J. Matheson of Coconut Grove, Florida on 23 June 1917 for use as a patrol boat during World War I. She was commissioned[2] on 23 July 1917 as USS Coco (SP-110).

Assigned to the 7th Naval District, Coco served in Florida waters for the rest of the wara nd for some months after the fighting ended.

Coco was stricken from the Naval Vessel Register on 23 June 1919 and sold on 5 August. Before she could be delivered to her new owner, she was among several patrol boats wrecked in the 1919 Florida Keys hurricane on 9-10 September while anchored in North Beach Basin at Key West, Florida.

You mentioned your Lab was a female. . . what about "Tikka"?:)

How about "Gunner"? I just lost a beautiful Tonkinese cat named Gunner. He was the best. Strange how people would ask his name and when I told them they'd roll their eyes and say "figures." Thing was, he was eight months old when I got him and was already named. I didn't change it.

I always tried to keep a dog's name to one syllable, if you must, two syllables at the very most.
Of the very few that I read here I sorta liked "Hoppes".
But in my suggestion vein, how about "Gun" or some derivative there-of?

Pick a name with two strong syllables - this maximizes the dog brain effect.
Also take into account what you want to be yelling down the street when the
pooch takes it into his head to head south. Had a neighbor that looked really
stupid yelling Ohhh Layyyyy. Thus while I really like Reeeee Load.. Brow Ning
is prolly better.

I hope the Gunny doesn't come to my house & kick my a**. I also hope the dog doesn't order me around.

Too bad you already decided on a name... for a chocolate lab you couldn't do any better than "Bess." That is totally what I would name a female brown dog if I got one.

If your next dog is a black lab, you can name her Betty (Black Betty being the predecessor to the Brown Bess musket).

Screw it, just name the dog "M-14." I think I may name my first kid that. ;)

I saw "Reload" a couple of times and like that......"Rio" for short.
"Shortround" but don't have a short name. You kind of have to fit the name to the dog....a lot of good names though. gene

My English Springer was named Bouquet (bow quet) Trapper Joe. The Bouquet is a river near my house and has had a lot of trappers since the 1600's. called him Joe for short.
I called him "my" dog,but he was really my youngest sons buddy, every school day joe'd go sit at the end of the drive way at 2:30 and look down the road til the bus came with his master.

Saw a pup the other day named Ljutic.


My grandfather's bird dog was named Nigsy.

(to clarify - no racial overtones on Grandpa's dog, it was a tan spaniel named by my 2 year old uncle at the time, apparently an approximating of 'pig')

Winchester, or Remington is very classy. Sounds like a professor. Sorry if someone already, mentioned any of these but there are too many posts to read all of them. then there is Kimber, 12 gauge, buck, magnum, stinger, blaster,bolt,AR, AK, Mag, laser,Tracer,Seal,"if he's a good swimmer".

My wife and I already decided on names if we have any more kids. Daughter would be Remington Journey, son would be Wesson (haven't decided on middle name yet), with my last name being Smith. I'm also kicking around the idea of 'Caliber' and calling him Cal. I'd have to get rid of my car before we did that though, seeing as how I drive a Dodge Caliber.

Our first female American Bulldog, so it kinda has to be a feminine name. She's five days old, so we have a few weeks or so to decide.

The wife likes Remington, but I was saving that for my daughter.
A couple already posted in the thread that that I liked were Calamity Jane and R. Lee

I also like Artillery, Arisaka, Kalishnakov (calling her Kali).

I named a beagle Ruger 'cuz I got him and a Mini-14 on the same weekend. When he got old, we got him a cocker spaniel buddy that my wife -- my wife -- named Winchester officially, but we always called him Chester. Our current dog, Tara, is gun-shy of all things. Probably a result of not naming her properly early in life. :p
Since we're thinking of getting her a young friend to raise properly for us, this has been a most entertaining thread.

Were in the process of settling on Daly ( I hope) as in Charles. But I'll settle for Daisy if I must. Kalishnikov was my first choice, then Rossi

I like Sharps for a female, and I know someone in CO with a female Lab named Ruger (I named my heeler that after he told me). He posts here too, occasionally!
