Dog Sibling for Larry (hypothetical)

I already have an adorable mutt named [name_m]Larry[/name_m] and when we get a house, we are thinking about getting another dog. I am sold on [name_m]Beauregard[/name_m] nn [name_u]Beau[/name_u] if we were to get a boy but I am lost on girls name. I really like “old people” names with [name_m]Larry[/name_m], however I don’t want to name a dog something just because it sounds good with [name_m]Larry[/name_m]. I will also take more suggestions for male dogs.

So far I like…
[name_u]Lennon[/name_u] (for a girl)
[name_m]Leroy[/name_m] (boy-we call [name_m]Larry[/name_m] [name_f]Leelee[/name_f] though)
[name_m]Leopold[/name_m] (boy-nickname [name_u]Leo[/name_u] is too close to Leelee)
Selenas (yes Selenas)
[name_f]Matilda[/name_f] (too grand next to [name_m]Larry[/name_m]? Plus nickname [name_f]Tilly[/name_f] is out as someone else in our family has a cat named Tillamook nn Tilly"
[name_u]Walter[/name_u] (boy)
Jimothy (boy-yes Jimothy)
[name_m]Chester[/name_m] (boy)
[name_m]Gilbert[/name_m] (boy)
[name_m]Hal[/name_m] (boy)

I really like [name_f]Agnes[/name_f] (Aggie!), [name_f]Gertrude[/name_f] (Trudy!), [name_u]Walter[/name_u], [name_m]Chester[/name_m], and [name_m]Hal[/name_m] from your options!!! Other ideas…



[name_m]Hi[/name_m] there.

[name_m]Larry[/name_m] for a lovable mutt is so cute. I think that [name_u]Beau[/name_u] would be very nice for a brother.

Here are my thoughts on the rest of your list-

Lennon-Meh, it’s okay. I love [name_u]John[/name_u] Lennon; but I don’t like [name_m]Lenin[/name_m]. And I just don’t think that this sounds that pretty.

Leroy-That’s fun, but too close to [name_m]Larry[/name_m].

Leopold-Leo is adorable, but kind of close to [name_f]Leelee[/name_f] for sure.

Ethel-That’d be amazing for a dog.

Selenas-I’m not familiar w/this name. Not sure how I feel about it.

Jillian-Not my cup of tea. Feels a bit meh.

Thelma-Not my style, but could not be more perfect w/Larry.

Gertrude-I’d die happy if I met a dog named [name_f]Gerty[/name_f]. :joy:

Agnes-That’s pretty cute. I know a beautiful cat named this, & love it on her.

Matilda-Yeah, I feel like it doesn’t fit w/Larry & it’s just a little done. Mostly just on these boards, so maybe in real life it feels more interesting. But [name_f]Tilly[/name_f] seems hard to avoid.

Walter-That’s really charming. I met a [name_m]Basset[/name_m] Hound named this before. So stinkin’ cute!

Jimothy-Meh, I don’t know. Seems a tad made-up-ish.

Chester-I want to like this name. I really like [name_m]Chet[/name_m]. [name_m]Chester[/name_m] just sounds weaselly to me.

Gilbert-This has a similar vibe as [name_m]Chester[/name_m], but sweeter. I can totally see this on a dopey lovable pup.

Hal-I like that too. Better as a nn for maybe [name_m]Harold[/name_m]? [name_u]Or[/name_u] is that too close to [name_m]Larry[/name_m]?

A few more ideas-



















[name_m]Ned[/name_m] (Edward nn Ned?)


[name_f]Hope[/name_f] this helps. :slight_smile:

@MichelleM I love that you said that about Jimothy. It is definitely made up. It is a refference from one of my favorite TV shows. Same with Selenas. It is a movie reference. It was the was the way this character said [name_f]Selena[/name_f]. I love your suggestions of [name_m]Bernard[/name_m] and [name_m]Ned[/name_m] and I added [name_m]Bernard[/name_m] to the list. I couldn’t do [name_m]Ned[/name_m] as a friend of oours had a [name_m]Ned[/name_m] that sadly passed away. I also also love [name_f]Susan[/name_f].
I would say [name_m]Harold[/name_m] is a bit to similar to [name_m]Larry[/name_m] as he sometimes gets called Larold.

[name_m]Beauregard[/name_m] “Beau” is cute. Also [name_f]Ethel[/name_f] & [name_m]Chester[/name_m].

I also thought of [name_m]Montague[/name_m] “Monty” or [name_u]Sidney[/name_u] “Sid”

For a girl, how about [name_f]Judith[/name_f] “Judy”
