Help Me Name My Dog!

After years of waiting, my family is finally getting a dog! She’s a chocolate labradoodle and we’ll get her in [name_u]August[/name_u]. The only problem is nobody can agree on a name. Half my family likes cutesy names such as Cupcake and Latte, but my Mom and I agree that we want a name that’s not on the Namberry top dog names of 2017. The only name we all agree on is [name_f]Pippa[/name_f], but we want more options. [name_f]My[/name_f] Mom and I also like [name_f]Dolly[/name_f]. I want a name that is something I’d be too hesitant to bestow on a human child, possibly something from mythology or literature.
I like: [name_f]Juno[/name_f], [name_f]Antigone[/name_f], [name_f]Jemima[/name_f], [name_f]Daphne[/name_f]
Other criteria: we have a cat named [name_m]Louis[/name_m] (which sadly rules out [name_u]Louise[/name_u]), and would prefer a name that is 2-3 syllables
Thanks for the suggestions!

[name_m]How[/name_m] exciting!

[name_m]Reading[/name_m] all the names you’re considering, the one that jumps into my head is… [name_f]Dido[/name_f] :yellow_heart:

Thanks for all the suggestions! I’m loving [name_f]Esme[/name_f], Larskpur, and [name_f]Elsie[/name_f]. BothHarriet and [name_f]Persephone[/name_f] had been previously vetoed :((

I like [name_f]Lola[/name_f]! Also, [name_f]Maggie[/name_f] and Marmalatte!
