the REALLY REALLY GOOD news: the little girl pup is going to be fine. she may end up deaf, but she absolutely will not be put down. she's going back to the neurologist in 3-4 weeks, when she gets a full hearing test.

the less good, but still good news: we're definitely taking the remaining little boy. we're going to go meet everyone in a couple of weeks. the arrival home has probably been pushed back a week, which means i may have to change my vacation, but i'm fine with that if it means she'll be fine.

i seriously can't tell you all just how relieved i am right now to hear she'll be fine. she'll make someone a great pet; we just can't risk having a deaf dog. not for my first dog, not for his first doberman...and not for a watchdog or agility/Schutzhund dog.

...so here's where the hard part comes in. we need name suggestions...both for his registered name and his "call name." Chris is leaning toward Otto, of which i'm not really a fan.

i'd like to try and work around the sire's name (Ch Triadel's Day of the Dragon). the registered name would be DenMar's _______ Dragon or DenMar's Dragon _______. [livejournal.com profile] thetommydodd suggested Idris, which is Welsh and the name of a small dragon from Ivar the Engine. Chris suggested i look at books for inspiration, so i'm going to offer Idris as well as others from a series of dragon-centric books that have recently hit my "favorites" shelf.

so, here goes:
Arkady
Excidium
Celeritas
Levitas
Nitidus
Immortalis

all of these are dragons from the Temeraire series of books.

Idris is a female name, and for me is now forever associated with the TARDIS/Doctor Who, due to Neil Gaiman's magnificent episode "The Doctor's Wife."

Vhagar, Belerion, and Meraxes are legendary dragons in A Song of Ice and Fire, and Drogon, Viserion, and Rhaegon are other dragon names from that series.

Norbert is Hagrid's baby dragon from Harry Potter.

The infamous Smaug from The Hobbit, though that's not one that parses well into a dog name I don't think. Ancalagon [the Black] is another from Tolkien's legendarium, as are Scatha and Glaurung.

Draco, Fafnir.

Falcor/Falkor!

I know you'd been thinking Gozer, who is/was Sumerian, for the little girl. Zu is Sumerian, too :)

I liked Meraxes best, too ;) [edit Arkady is a good one from your list, and would be a cute name for a pup :D]

and HOMG I WOULD LOVE TO MEET THE PUPPERNUTTERS

You'd better tell the late King Mohammed Idris Senussi of Libya then, and the Islamic Prophet Idris...

I find, with responsive pets, that many times meeting the creates instant inspiration for their name; their personalities often call out to us.

Have you met Le Pup yet? Might be worth waiting to decide in a final name.
