Anything with at least 2 sylables, and it is a requirement that it "hollers" good.

This also works well for namin` boy chilluns!

Some are named after guns or something simular. Remington, Gunner, Muzzy, Magnum, Beretta or Hunter...

Stay away from names that are close to commands as this will confuse the dog. ex. Bo is too close to no or whoa.

People I got my lab from were calling him Bo, had them stop and start calling him Sam when I picked him out at 3 weeks old.

I had a field trial lab that was fast as greased lightning. His call name was "Jet"...full name was "Flint River's Jet Black Attack"...thought that was kinda neat.

I agree with others, name him a one sylable name and nothing that remotely sounds like any command you are likely to use.

No kidding: My first cousin had a dog he named "******************"...he thought it was cute until he got loose at the beach one day and he had to chase him down....true story.

the name should be one sylable...not 2. (for ease of calling in the field) I own Gus, Jill, Hope, Nell, and Rose....one sylable is MUCH easier to have to repeat than 2 or more.

My two Llewellins are Chipper and Andruw. That's "Chip" and "Druw" in the field.

I don't think "Sam" would work too well, when you think about it being too close to a command or whatever.

Reminds me of the Havilah Babcock story about the dog who thought his name was a commonly used term that would normally provoke fisticuffs when used between humans. A problem arose when a minister hunted with Babcock and his friend, who both used the dog's name freely. At a break, the minister asked just exactly what the dog's name was, and how it had come to be. The friend replied that the dog's daddy was named Bishop, so they had named the dog Son-of-Bishop in honor of the father.

My labs name is Hunter, short for Rocky Top's Slim Chance for Hunter. While in the field his name is Boo (nickname). He is smart enough to know both of them.

My next one will be named Buck.

I once had an English Setter named Rhrett (Rhett Buttler). What a hunter he was. Before I got married she told me that eather the dog goes or she goes. Biggest mistake of my life I kept her.

I once named an old yard dog "Joe Budd" after a WMA down in Florida where I found him abandoned as a puppy.
