Two Syllable “Sweet” Names

Hi, all! On the hunt for a 2 syllable name that fits a sweet, loving temperament. Bonus points if it’s got a nickname built in!

Full disclosure, it’s for a puppy! I’ve posted in the pet names forum when we decided we were getting him, but now that he’s about 5 weeks and looking more like an actual Golden pup, I feel like we need a little more help. This topic usually gets a few more viewers :wink:

Some tops names from our current list:

Kramer
Denver
Goose
Winston
Harvey

I’m not sure if any of these are “the one” but we do really like them all. We prefer 2 syllable names — Goose is the exception. What do you think?!

And, because we could all use some happy — here’s a pic of him today! (We get him in 3 weeks!).

He’s so cute! [name_u]Denver[/name_u] would be absolutely perfect for him, but if you’re not sure, how about…

Jopson
[name_u]Indy[/name_u]
[name_u]Stevie[/name_u]
[name_u]Lennon[/name_u]
[name_u]Rigby[/name_u]
[name_u]Tatum[/name_u]
[name_m]Digby[/name_m]
[name_u]Ramsey[/name_u]
[name_m]Ozzy[/name_m]
[name_m]Warner[/name_m]
[name_m]Carver[/name_m]
Birkin
[name_u]Abbott[/name_u]
[name_m]Whitman[/name_m]
[name_m]Beckham[/name_m]
[name_u]Winslow[/name_u]
[name_m]Branley[/name_m]
[name_m]Jonas[/name_m]
[name_m]Willis[/name_m]
[name_m]Warren[/name_m]
[name_m]Lewis[/name_m]
[name_m]Franklin[/name_m]
[name_m]Wesley[/name_m]

[name_m]Jessop[/name_m]
[name_u]Lionel[/name_u]
[name_u]Emmett[/name_u]
[name_m]Quinton[/name_m]
[name_m]Calvin[/name_m]

How cute! I love [name_u]Denver[/name_u] from your list

Maybe:
[name_u]Robin[/name_u]
[name_m]Barney[/name_m]
[name_m]Hugo[/name_m]
[name_m]Davey[/name_m]
[name_u]Sparrow[/name_u]
[name_u]Percy[/name_u]
[name_u]Perry[/name_u]
[name_u]Shiloh[/name_u]
[name_u]River[/name_u]
Goodwin
[name_u]Ashby[/name_u]
[name_m]Darwin[/name_m]

I think [name_u]Denver[/name_u] suits him perfectly! He just has the sweetness of a little [name_u]Denver[/name_u].

Oh he is adorable! He looks like a [name_m]Harvey[/name_m]!
(Some more ideas just because this is fun)

[name_m]Hugo[/name_m]
[name_u]Wiley[/name_u]
[name_u]Milo[/name_u]
[name_m]Linus[/name_m]
Snoopy
[name_m]Marvin[/name_m]

[name_u]Denver[/name_u] is adorable! If I had a pup, I’d probably call them [name_f]Brinkley[/name_f] after the pooch in the movie You’ve Got [name_m]Mail[/name_m]. :sweat_smile:

We have a golden retriever called [name_f]Maple[/name_f]!

I would call that fellow [name_u]Teddy[/name_u] because he’s adorable!

What a cutie!

I love [name_m]Winston[/name_m]!

Some that came to mind:

[name_m]Truman[/name_m] “True”
[name_m]Franklin[/name_m] “Frankie”
[name_m]Otto[/name_m]
[name_m]Phillip[/name_m] “Pip”
[name_m]Fletcher[/name_m] “Fletch”
[name_u]Harley[/name_u]
[name_m]Oscar[/name_m] “Ozzy”
[name_u]Indy[/name_u]

Oh my gosh ! How sweet is this face
I love [name_m]Harvey[/name_m] , so that would be my vote!

What about
[name_u]Oakley[/name_u]
[name_m]Bishop[/name_m]
[name_m]Barclay[/name_m]
[name_m]Otis[/name_m]
[name_m]Kingston[/name_m]
[name_m]Allan[/name_m]
Archer/ [name_m]Archie[/name_m]

Thank you all so much! There are some really great suggestions here. I’m now sad because my husband said he doesn’t “see” [name_u]Denver[/name_u] and I was actually thinking that could be the one!

The top contender right now is Goose, which has been in my top 2 favorites. I’m going to share some of your suggestions with him and see if we can find a 2 syllable one that we may like even more than Goose.

@esita [name_u]Teddy[/name_u] would be great! It’s unusable for us, however, due to a family member having that name.

[name_f]Maple[/name_f] is amazing for a golden girl!

[name_m]Just[/name_m] following up with a quick update — we’ve landed on a name…

Goose!

This was one I’ve loved since we decided to bring him home, and I even told my best friend a few weeks ago that I just felt like it was his name. I got cold feet about it this week, but my husband and I both love it (as do our friends and family) and it just feels right.

Excited to bring little Goosey home in a few short weeks! Thanks for all your help!
