Well if you’re going with Greek god names, you could always name her Athena, Hera, or something like that and come up with a nickname.  I love the idea of a strong female name.

For some reason the first things that came to my mind were Zelda or Xena or Zora.  Maybe because you said Zeus.  I also like Cassie, Akira, Stormy, and Sasha.  

Congrats on the new fur baby!

Congrats on the new puppy! Like PPs said, I totally thought of Xena right away when you listed your boy names. I also like Athena. But I always ask if I can say a name sternly without laughing or sounding silly/not stern. You never know when you’ll have to give a command to stop your dog in her tracks, and a stern PENELOPE totally wouldn’t work for me. Haha.

So my friend has two rotties (a boy and a girl) and named them Samson and Delilah. I thought it was pretty cute.

Our little black cat is named Nova, so I might be biased!  Just an FYI if you go with Nova, I think the word “no” gets kind of confusing to them because it’s the first half of their name.  I  say “NO!” to the her (not that the cats ever listen) and my husband always corrects me by saying “VA!” right afterwards.  Not a big deal with cats, but I think it might be a little more challenging with a dog (especially a puppy you are trying to train).  I’m sure there are a lot of dogs named Nova that have turned out just fine though, I just wanted to put it out there as something to think about!

Good luck!

How about Kali after the Indian goddess?  Very strong female character.

I can’t wait to see pics of your puppy. I like a lot of the suggestions in this thread. How about Xena?

Yay for Rotties!  We recently adopted a 4yr old from the pound and I am in LOVE with the breed.

I wanted to name ours Clarice (from Silence of the Lambs) – but Darling Husband wouldn’t have it. 🙂

I have a friend who used to have a Rott named Stormy – I think that’s cute.
