For some reason, the picture makes me think “Charlie” but that doesn’t have any California roots.

I’m not too creative with names, but I wanted to tell you that when we picked up our “puppy” (90lb German Shepherd/lab), she had the name Stiptoe.  The rescue said that it had no significance, the foster mom just thought it sounded neat. Undecided

She’s Addie now.

@Jijitattoo:  I really like Berkeley. 

I’m not sure what type of name you’re looking for though. Personally, I like my pets to have “people names” rather than what most people think of as “dog names” (like Spot, Floppy, or any sort of adjective/description really). I love names, but we’re CBC so I usually choose one of my favorite names for pets. I love Carter, Jackson (Jack), Eli, and the list goes on and on. Lol

I think it’s great that you’re planning to rename him. My girl came from a sad situation and we renamed her. Anytime the old name, Sydney, is mentioned (like if someone asks what it used to be, which is rare since we’ve had her over two years, thankfully) she gets visibly upset, whines, etc. This went so well for her that we renamed our boy we adopted 6 months later also. He adapted quickly and well too. They’re our Jane and Avery now.
