I am getting my male maltese puppy in two weeks and i cannot come up with a cute name for him. So i am asking everybody out there to help me decide on a name for him.

So many names to choose from. Think about what you like in life or something like flowers or think about your hobbies and what's important to you or even WHO is important to you. When you look at your baby, what are some of the adjectives you have for him and what does he remind you of or what do you think of when you look at him? GOOD LUCK!

My suggestion kind of mirrors ButterCloudandNoriko. Think of books, music, movies, even TV shows that you like. We know someone whose dog is named Scout because they are big fans of "To Kill a Mockingbird". Another friend's favorite TV show was "Friends" so their little Jack Russell Terrier is Chandler Bing. We have a female Maltese but if we'd gotten a male my daughter is a maniac Beatles fan so he'd probably have been named McCartney or Lennon.

I LOVE this idea! I also want a Jack Russell because they're like the smartest dogs. Maybe if I get a Jack russell, I'll name him Joey or her Rach(el). HAHAHA

Did you guys watch the oprah show when she had Johnny Depp on? Tell me he looks like he could be Joey Tribianni's/Matt Lablanc's brother or TWIN! HAHAHAH

I agree with everyone else in that I think the name will come to you once you spend some time with your little man... but this site may give you a starter...

I personally love names for little guys like Seargent and Oliver...Those are a couple of the ones I had picked out for if I had gotten a little boy. Then I had a group of girls names and settled on Abigail Windsor.


GOOD LUCK!!!

Brinkley's came from a movie. There are TONS of lists online...that is what I will do when I get another. I found a list of dog names from movies...immediately when I saw "YOu've got Mail..."-I didn't even have to look at the name..I remembered the Golden Retriever named Brinkley. I knew that had to be it!
My husband and son wanted "Harvey"-but not me.

The Chandler Bing is Hilarious! We are huge "Friends" fans...
I even thought about naming him "Regis"-you know "Regis Philbin"
I also thought about naming a girl "Vanna"-b/c of Vanna White!!
I just like differentnames...no offense to the white dog names...but I didn't want a white dog name like snow or fluffy, angel, etc. I did think of Krystal for a girl...that is kinda white doggish...
I like peoplely like names better...I don't know..I am weird.
We have a guy in town named "Bentley" that the vet's daughter named her Yorkie after b/c she liked his name...that is really a cute name for a dog. He said he was honored!

Anyway, whatever you pick will fit! I don't think Brinkley would have made a good "Harvey"-even though we use it as his middle name when he is in trouble.

Hmmmmm, now let me see...since your last name seems to be Becnel, why not call him "Becker"?

Like the other girls say, when you get him, a name will come to you.
And it is kind of a personal thing. You tend to attach a name that you like
to a little guy that you LOVE. Therefore, naming the little guy should come from
your heart. Which I'm certain it will. :D
Good luck

I have a great name for a Maltese dog that was used by a friend for her black persian cat many years ago...now waiting at the bridge. The name is helbore.. full name Black Helbore..and it is a medicinal herb with quite magical powers. Get the irony..naming a white dog such a name. \Seriously chosing a name is individual and sometimes the right name comes to you with no pre thought.
Love and enjoy tour puppy!

Well, I have a Siamese cat named Danny and my little Malt is Vinny. Just in case you didnt get it, Danny Zuko and Vinny Barbarino. Sigh, I love John Travolta.

My 16 year old Maltese is "Benji" from "Benji the hunted". We have all sorts of nicknames: Benjamin, Benny, benny boo-boo (how to lose a guy in 10 days), Beener wiener. HEehee. Gizmo's name was nearly changed to "Boo-boo" because when people called him that he would come, but never when you called him Gizmo.

If I ever got another male I'd call him Rocky.

(As you can see I like movie names too). Tyson is nice too. Herbie (the luv bug)
