A blog about faith and being a mom.
Any ideas? He’s a big black Newfoundland!
Alemos. It’s an Abenaki (Native American tribe in my family) word meaning “dog.”
– Money – Sell-Out – Fake – Hypocrite – Levi
Awee forget silly, immature Joey Russo 3sticks’ comment. How about Beaumont (Beau, Bo, short spelling choice), Beaumont means beautiful mountain…and she/he will be big.
How about Moochelle..:)
How about Russo?
Are you the same Joey Russo that founded Conservatives4Palin, or are you an imposter?? If you are the former, then you have become a real disappointment, to say the least. You have let down a lot of people and you are simply turning into a much younger John Ziegler. You owe A LOT of people an explanation for your recent cheap-shot remarks on Bristol’s blog. If you are the latter, then I hope that the real Joey Russo is still level-headed and will kick your butt. Regardless, your comment was unfortunate, to say the least.
Is it a boy or girl? If it’s a boy name him Jack!
I got it!!! how about Bigs….in honor of Andrew Beitbart..ya that’s it MR Bigs!!!!
He looks like a Patriot Knight to me. We need more patriot knights all across our land. May millions rise up and maintain our freedom!
Well, Charlie is already taken. How about Blackie?
I’ve never had a dog, but I’m kind of old school with dog names. I’d go with either Rex or King (well Rex is Latin for King anyway, so it’s the same difference). Beautiful dog by the way.
Moose! My big Black Lab girl doggy’s name is “Sasparilla Sasafrasasaurus Sassy for short” but she’s a big ol pushy moose so we call her “Moose”, too. And when it’s cold outside and she comes inside she likes to stick her cold wet nose on any uncovered skin she can find and we call her nose a “Moose-sicle”. So considering how big your new little boy is going to be….living in Alaska….being cold…..I vote for “Moose” or “Moose-apottomus” or “Moose-asaurus Rex”. Sassy also put in her 2 biscuits for Moose and so did my other Black Blabberdor, Toby. So 3 votes and 4 dog biscuits for some variety of “Moose”. Enjoy him while he’s little and still has puppy breath. Puppy breath is the best! Guys just don’t understand that one….but us girls do.
Norman after the General, Norman Schwarzkopf, whose family name is “Black Head” in German…
Or perhaps “Wilson”, in honour of President Ronald Wilson Reagan ?
Super adorable! And the puppy’s pretty cute, too! : )
You could name him “Dark Meat,” in honor of the president’s menu.
“Hoss” from Bonnanza
Beautiful Newffoundland! Congrats! When I first saw the picture “Mick” struck me for some reason. The suggestion ‘MR Bigs’ is cute, and so is ‘Moose’. Usually whenever I name a dog I just give it a couple of days and one will just seem to fall into place.
I’m submitting the name “Troop”. I think it’s a cool name
Important considerations when choosing Newfoundland Dog Names
The most popular girl and boy Newfoundland dog names have a trend towards being short and would be easily recognisable by a dog. Your Newfoundland dog’s name will be used hundreds of times every week – make sure you are quite happy with your choice!
Newfoundland Dog Names should be short – preferably one or two syllables
Dog names should not sound like any other within the family or close friends – total confusion will arise!
Dog names should not sound like any commands – even more confusion will arise!
I humbly suggest “Breitbart.”
Reagan, if it’s a ‘he’ Thatcher, is it’s a ‘girl’
I love the name Wilson or cooper
Thinking of an Avalanche, name could be either, Av or Lanche. Thinking of fish, Sam, Hal, or Wally and of course there’s Bou Palin
Or how about Agia IV?
Name it Bill Maher
Bristol, He is a beautiful dog! He is going to be a big one. The following are names that might fit him; Bronson Benson samson Mozart
How about the name Charlie?
Ohhhh, Bristol! If he isn’t the cutest!!! They are such a fabulous breed and totally WONDERFUL with children! My cousins had a NF when we were young and he was like a great BIG, fluffy, cuddly, super huggable teddy bear…….If he’s a male, and being that he’s a dog, I’d probably name him BEAR, LOL! Or, in keeping w/ the Palin “T” tradition…….I’d name him TEDDY Enjoy your new puppy!
Looks like a “Jesse” to me…
Or you could name him “Red”..
definitely Moose. But that may be a personal thing.
Bristol, This one comes from Joseph A. Morabito of Team Sarah, and I like it better even than my own:
For the Newfoundland city that opened its homes to thousands of U.S bound travelers after the terrorist attacks of 2001.”
Samson, for sure!
Midnight Sun, nickname “Midnight”
Name your puppy dog….Dawg.
Snickers or Bentley
Baby Bear, is the perfect name, although he will soon outgrow the name, it will still be great to call him Baby Bear.
What an adorable pup! Somehow I’m certain Gino’s mamacita is loving that puppy!
I lkke the Brietbart idea! But how about making it just “Bart”!!
I read that the this breed is from a viking descendant the black bear dog..it is a legend not a fact but I thought Viking was a cute and fitting name for him
Breitbart sounds good. How about Trident, stay with T names.
Akiak. I think he looks like he will be brave, and a protector.
Harry would be a great name!
Zippity Doo Dah.
Name the dog, Bear.
Xander (pronounced Zander like the guy in Buffy the Vampire Slayer) I’ve just always thought that was an awesome name.
Here are a bunch of names! Enjoy! https://welcomepup.com/puppy-guide/the-ultimate-puppy-name-list/
Since he is a black dog, and of course, a proud Alaskan, how about Saghani? It means ‘ raven ‘ in Inuit. Just a thought! Enjoy your new puppy!
Or Sakari, which means ” sweet ” in Inuit. He looks like a sweetie!
Blacky or Tar or Coal or Black Boy.
I like Gus, or Captain…..I’m a Lonesome Dove fan though!
Since you have Tripp and Trig, why not stick with the “T” theme and name him Tank? He’s gonna be as big as one!
Looks more like a “Scotty”
Oh that is easy name the dog …Palin
These were the names of our dogs we had through the years: Tiger, Max, Logan, Dillon, Justice, Liebling, Sam, McKenzie aka Mack for short.
As big as he’s going to get, he’s going to eat you out of house and home lol. I’ve always wanted a New Foundland, but during my research on them, I found that they don’t make good pets they are working dogs and they need to work. One good thing about them is that they are protective toward children and they are eager to learn. One of the down sides though is that they live between 8 to 10 years and because I get very attached to animals, losing one after that length of time, or any length of time really, is difficult for me. Yes, for a ranchers daughter I’m a wimp it comes to animals.
we have had two newfoundlands while my kids were growing up. we lived on a ranch and when the kids wanted to swim in the irrigation pond they would have to put the dog in the garage as she would dive in and pull the kids to the side as soon as they were in the water. as for eating a lot, our lab ate more than the newfies as they have such a slow metabolism. one of ours topped out at 180 lbs but that was before she was diagnosed as hypothyroid. they were great dogs, though.
How about “Shadow”?
Griz, Thunderpaw or Deshka
A good name is Spirit
Hmmmmm how about…
I like all these:)
How about Winston? (That’s my dog’s name!)
How about “Laska”, short for Alaska!!!
Though I love Cheryl’s name LASKA, I can’t help say that I grew up with my dog ‘PRINCE’ and Bristol he could be his twin. PS: Got your mom’s do going there! LOL!!
how about patriot that is what your family stands for
“Hero” is a good name for a rescue dog like a Newfy. Tara
Black Fang, Fang, for short.
When I was growing up I had a English Setter Name was “Bullet” I consider it an Honor… U Betcha… ~ !
I am not sure of the spelling but I think it is a great name for such a good looking & fearful dog.
Bristol, I have a black lab and her name is Shadow. She just turned 11yrs old, had her since she was a pup. Love her to pieces! How about Blackjack. They say to name a dog with 1-2 syllables, easier to train them.
Here’s another suggestion..COCOA! Because he reminds me of chocolate. Or SANDY which reminds me of land which is sandy from new found land
Wonder what Raider looks like now. He must be ginormous!
Holy! Raider’s as tall as Gino now! He looks like a big bear. So cuddly and adorable. ♥
