What a cutie! We have a Lab named Yosemite (after the national park, a big name and we love it! We also call him YoYo.) And we also have a Golden Retriever/Lab mix named Banjo! Retrieves are wonderful companions. 


Flash, Donatello, Capone, Sirius, Weasley (he is a red head!) Are all great names too.

How completely beautiful !

l know a wonderful golden boy, big and strong as yours is going to be, called James. It seemed the perfect name , dignified but a little bit jokey given it’s such a human name.

sbl99 :   we were considering this name for our dog because we found it funny. It’s the name of a Greek god and the name literally translates into ‘not inclined to run away’!! My husband had a dog who was a bit of an escape artist as he was growing up….so hence the the humour we found in this name. I saw your doggy picture and I automatically thought you dog looks like an adrastos! 


Adrastos was the name of the king of Argos in the Greek legend. The name Adrastos means, “not inclined to run away”.

I like the name Graham! I think it’s a strong name and could be good with his coloring? Other name suggestions I likes we’re Silas, Cooper, and Finn.

Goldens are such wonderfl dogs! Be prepared to do A LOT of vacuuming but otherwise they are a total dream. Sweetest dogs in the world!

What about the name Benji? I think it’s perfect because it is masculine like you want, but also sweet. I don’t think “aggressive” sounding names suit goldens at all haha
