Unique pug name - help!

We are getting a male pug puppy and are struggling to come up with a suitable and unique name. We like names that no one else has and are still usable in daily life, and have been throwing around possibilities like [name_m]Huckleberry[/name_m], [name_m]Seymour[/name_m], Noodles, [name_m]Elwood[/name_m], [name_m]Sebastian[/name_m]. But none of them are like THAT’S IT. [name_m]Huckleberry[/name_m] might be the favorite right now.

Some of our past pet names, to give you more of a flavor of what we like: [name_m]Mortimer[/name_m], [name_m]Valentino[/name_m], [name_m]Hieronymus[/name_m], Brimstone, [name_m]Balthazar[/name_m], Pickles.

Any help is appreciated!

Beaumont
[name_m]Hawthorne[/name_m]
[name_m]Bartholomew[/name_m]
[name_m]Leonidas[/name_m]
[name_u]Thaddeus[/name_u]
[name_m]Valentino[/name_m]
Montenegro
[name_m]Montego[/name_m]
[name_u]Oleander[/name_u]
[name_m]Jethro[/name_m]
[name_m]Tybalt[/name_m]
[name_m]Whittaker[/name_m]
[name_m]Bramble[/name_m]
[name_m]Marius[/name_m]
Michaelangelo
[name_m]Norton[/name_m]

So I’m getting mostly an unusual vintage vibe from those, and then cute noun names like Pickles and Noodles :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

[name_u]Penrose[/name_u], [name_m]Laszlo[/name_m], [name_m]Decimus[/name_m], [name_m]Eryx[/name_m], [name_m]Cadmus[/name_m], [name_m]Jupiter[/name_m], [name_m]Abner[/name_m], [name_m]Romulus[/name_m], [name_m]Bramwell[/name_m], [name_u]Beacon[/name_u], [name_m]Caruso[/name_m], [name_m]Alaric[/name_m], [name_m]Wulfric[/name_m], [name_u]Maurice[/name_u], [name_m]Osbert[/name_m], [name_m]Aloysius[/name_m]

Macaroon, Aspargus, Boysenberry, MoonPie, Acorn, Pockets, [name_u]Prairie[/name_u], Button, Merino

I totally forgot [name_u]Willoughby[/name_u]!

Sycamore, [name_u]Cypress[/name_u], [name_u]Twilight[/name_u], [name_f]Evening[/name_f], [name_f]Afternoon[/name_f], [name_u]Dusk[/name_u], [name_u]Garnet[/name_u], [name_f]Emerald[/name_f], [name_u]Pyrite[/name_u], [name_u]Sorrel[/name_u]

These are so good! We do like the noun names too - it’s landing on the right one that’s the problem!

Huckleberry is so cute! Other names that bring to mind a pug: [name_m]Winston[/name_m], [name_m]Clyde[/name_m], [name_m]Rafferty[/name_m], [name_u]Dash[/name_u], and [name_m]Nate[/name_m].

Huckleberry is a real winner!
