I had a dog by that name. Called that because she was a bitch and Thatcher might have been too obvious.

In the same vein

I rather stupidly went to see my sister on NYE, her dog has just had a litter of Cockador puppies (cocker Spaniel and Labrador) - I was ambushed and have agreed to have one of the puppies. The kids preferred name is Digby which we can’t have as our Made in Chelsea neighbour dog is called that😕

I have suggested Montgomery (Monty) for the founding father of the Parachute Regt.

However along with all the invariable abuse and sarky suggestions there is normally a belter, so I thought I would see what PR has to offer!!

Suggestions please...


I got as far as 'Cock..' and Hartley sprung to mind

Pongo & Monty make me think that just about any member of the Drones club (or the good old Pelican) provides a good dog's name. Fruity, Tuppy, Beefy, Plug, Mustard, Stinker, Buffy, Nobby, Bicky, Biffy, Chuffy, Corky, Gussie, Boko, Barmy, Kipper, Bingo, Catsmeat, Sippy, Rocky, Stilton. Perhaps not Stiffy nowadays...


‘Bertie’, if you’re going down that route. Though I think it’s better to have a name that (a) doesn’t end in y or ie (as too many dog names do); and (b) will attract instant attention and hilarity when shouted in the park.

One of my friends has a Bassett Hound called ‘Ipkiss’, which works well.

My vote is for ‘Akbar’


I like the Drones club list.

How about Wilberforce - Wilber for short.

What about Thtewart or Thteve? Then when you call out to him in the park, everyone will think you have a speech impediment - but the fücking joke will be on them!

I've just remembered a mate of a mate living down in Sherbourne - a posh lad originally from London with a double barrelled name called Tristram, and his almost as posh, bohemian wife also from London - explaining how he was conscious that, having called their toddler Ootha, there may be some future issues for him. He said he felt a lot better when he was waiting in the doctor's surgery with Ootha as another little lad was running around causing trouble when his father shouts out, "Ulysses, come here!"

There's actually a very good reason for a dog's name to either start with, or end with vowels that are of a higher pitch (like 'ie' or 'y'). Hope I expressed this correctly.

Dogs respond better when spoken to in a higher pitched voice. Just observe the difference when a female (person) is talking to a dog, compared to a male. With these types of vowels in the name, you can easier sound happy or excited, which would rub off on him/her.

By having a higher pitch sound in his/her name, it tends to get the dog's attention more effectively. If you then say that same name, and take the "high pitch" vowels and tone it down (like you would when you try to say something in a sarcastic manner), the dog would then tend to interpret this as you being pissed off at him/her, and is then more likely to stop being naughty and come running to you with it's tail down.

Works both ways. Dogs aren't immune from nagging.

You make it sound like women nag....

Oh. Carry on.

Nieghorn also made a valid comment about multi-syllable names. So a combo of a two-syllable name, with one of the syllables being of a higher pitch is ideal. Think 'Bob' vs. 'Bobby". First-mentioned to a dog would sound like you're angry at him, especially coming from a male voice. The second can be used in a 'happy voice', but if you put more emphasis on the first syllable you will be better able to scold him.

I also have to emphasise that nothing that I said in these last 2 posts are applicable to Jack Russell terriers. The only reason they have names is so that you have something to put on their name tags. They are always excited so no need for a 'happy name'.

And no matter what, or how, you call them when they're naughty, they wouldn't listen.

Severe ADHD. Which is actually quite fun :lol:

That could be my mate from London, a Cambridge blue too. He has 4 kids - Ulysees, Tiberius, Lucian and ???? To be fair to him, while he is a little eccentric, he is actually a very solid lad.
