before you settle on a name  go out in your yard and yell the name as loud as you can several times while feigning exasperation or frustration.  Just to be sure it rolls off the tongue nicely..

Had an ex that wanted to name our new dog Romeo, it was a firm no from me with visions of wandering the neighborhood calling "Romeo, Romeo wherefore art thou Romeo"

Scupper.

Don't take that dog near a Thai restaurant..... They'll think you're calling it "supper"....

Starboard.

 

Gives you the opportunity to shout it out loud on land. Might be interesting to see how many other dog walkers are sailors.

On an un-PC note, a family member wanted to name one of our dogs "Syndrome". I know, I'm going to hell.

All of our dogs have had nautical names: Scuppers, Mizzen, Skipjack, Pinafore (as in H.M.S. also only small dog we ever owned), Burgee and Compass Rose (goes by Rose).

Skipjack, Burgee and Rose were/are Chesapeake Bay Retrievers.

Burgee is a good one, trying to sell it to the family

Figger (eight knot)

Please forgive me for noticing it, though, this might not pass the "holler repeatedly at full volume outdoors" test, in certain neighborhoods at least.....

The poor dog just wants to be loved...... Don't give it a name that'll make it neurotic, like...... I dunno..... J28, or Saorsa, or...... (Ok I'll stop now......)

My son (then aged 2) named our dog Telescope - he had just learnt the word and liked it.  The dog has been called Scopey ever since (still going but riddled with Arthritis and continually traumatised by our 2yr old dog who wants to play). 

 

The son wants to call the next dog Naked, so he can tell his friends that he walked Naked through town.......he's 18 now.

+1 on this.. my lab rescue was named Cappie. Short for Cappuccino. never could come up with any good reason to hang another name on her and add to her confusion. 

 

Friend in Annapolis has a dog named Bait. makes me laugh every time I think about it.

The possibilities are endless:

  1. Cunningham - Cunny for short
  2. Leech
  3. Clew
  4. Chine
  5. Chop (as in choppy water)
  6. Overlap
  7. Carbon - if he's all black
  8. Quantum (sails)
  9. Cockpit
  10. Luff
  11. If you had two dogs, you could call them Port and Starboard

And my favorite "Hike, bitches!"

Not quite nautical, but considering the drinking abilities in this group.

Scotch, Soda, lime, cubalibre, black n tan, tonic, dark and stormy, you get the point... ;)

 "Stay! Stay!"

 "Heel! Stay!"

"Go fetch!Stay!"

 "You're a good boy, Stay! Hop on board Stay!"

Had a friend with pair of cats named Mylar and Kevlar ......

Lots of potential names with sail material names and cuts:

Stratus, Delta, Nordac, Technora, Taffeta, Airex, Tapedrive, TriRadial, Fusion, laminate, code zero, ...   

Although 'cross cut woven polyester' ..  probably not one of them ...

Sailor

A friend has a 1yo dog that is named this.

"This"?

 

 

 

 I had a friend who had a dog named "The"...... But I guess "This" works too....

 "Who's dog is this?"

He's mine.

 "What's his name?"....

Sailor.. He was a good dog.. Took him everywhere..all the sailing lessons as well  when he was a pup because I couldn't leave him in the truck because  I'd get hounded by the dog police . Not really the best choice for a boat dog being a Great Dane but it's how it turned out due to circumstances.. He had great balance and could jump into the skiff from the deck and never flip it.  Good security as well just because of his size.   Dane's are pretty much couch potatos so he was fine just laying around the boat...  now he chases the wind

 

One thing you need to remember about dog names that's important is you will be calling  that name out loud so don't pick something that's sounds funny like Spanker

A buddy of mine named his dog “cat”. Claimed it was for his catamaran.......I knew him better and sure it was to confound/amuse others.

BTW - Speaking of cats........Prindle would be cool.

Nice!  I had a Eng bull terrier once named her Gypsea .she hated the boat always seasick and the poor thing would panic whenever someone would jump in the water whereas she would jump in to "rescue " them only to have to have herself rescued because she couldn't swim for the life of her.  Great with kids and babies but would kill a dog real quick 

 How about Monkey Fist or Ketch

(I've called our cats and dogs "Fur Sharks" ever since I got married 19 years ago, and my wife started slipping them under table treats....)
