Did the whole family brainstorm that one?

Yes I think we must have.. We probably got the whiteboard out and had a phone-conference with the cousins and all... or one of us kids who were about 2-3 probably just started calling it that and it stuck..... not sure which is the more likely scenario.

I'm glad you didn't get offended. I can't be bothered to put smilley faces all the time. Kids often name dogs and parents have to play along, so Brown Dog was a good name as any.

I've had two dogs stolen, so I'm a little sad about it and I don't want one now.

I like the name REX.

For anyone interested, here is a by no means complete selection of names Poles often give their dogs:

where's Max??? the most popular dog name?

Why not a Polish form of "spike"

kolec??? ;D

I'd like to find a name for a female dog that means 'little stranger' or 'nameless' or 'little stray' or 'no-name' or something like that. Somebody told me Basha, but then I also heard that isn't Polish. Can anyone help?

Przybłęda. but its not nice name...

My Grandma had a German Shepherd named 'Aza' or 'Azza' or 'Azor' or 'Uzza'. Can someone tell me what this name means? The dog was bitch, and I have a German Shepherd and I called her this name. Also is the name 'Foonyick' rude or crazy or something funny? My Polish uncle had a dog named this, and it was the most horrid crazy thing I have ever seen.

firstly I apologize for the spelling. Our Australian cattle dog was called Zenta, our kelpie was Burek, my neighbours little mixed breed was Czapek, my aunts white fluff ball was Muska. My dag couldn't pronounce my deerhound's name Hamish so dad called him rubbish with a massive rolling r and an elongated ish, always made me laugh!

I call myself: "Choćtu" (Come here)

My dog's official name was "Arni" but i called him, due him looking somewhat similar to a żubr, "Bizon" or even "Bidon" (a water bottle used by sportsmen and cyclists) with no particular reason beside it sounding funny. :D

Does anyone know what a jewish family may name their *****? Or does it not really matter?

^That's meant to say the word for female dog lol

Suka is Polish for b1tch. As for naming, it doesn't matter. A Pole I knew well (sadly just died) who was Jewish called his dog Pirat, but the doggie was a boy.

I don't think it matters; no special rules.

Once in the park I heard a very respectable looking woman roaring what sounded like 'K*rwa' at a dog in the distance but it turned out to be 'Bulwa'. Doesn't that mean bulb?? Rather odd name even for a dog.

'Bulwa'. Doesn't that mean bulb??

It means Potato in North East Poland.

Thank you Wulkan. That's still an extraordinary name for a dog though isn't it? It was a Boxer. Now if it was an Irish Setter or an Irish Wolfhound I'd see the humour in calling it Spud but I can't see any reason to call a Boxer 'Potato'?? Ah well, we'll never know.
