Update: For more on naming your Scottie dogs, please go to our male and female Scottish Terrier name lists.
My father told me that you should always give dogs human names, that it wasn’t dignified to call them Fluffy or Spot. So when people laugh at my dog’s name, Bridget, I always tell them where I got my number one rule for dog naming. Often they reply just the opposite, that they were taught never to give dogs people names.
Once when I was calling Bridget at a park here in Montreal, a French woman practically collapsed in laughter. “Hahahaha, Bridget?” she said. “That’s your dog’s name. In French, Brigitte is a very high class name.”
I gave her my father’s first rule for dog names.”And what’s your dog’s name?” I asked.
“Rocket,” she answered. “Like the lettuce.”
“Oh yeah,” I said. “Arugula.”
I guess there’s just no accounting for taste or logic when it comes to dog names.
I bring all this up now because Scottie News’ first ever count-the-puppy contest failed miserably. Only brave Blair even hazarded a guess so he wins even if he got it wrong.
The correct answer was four males and three females. So we are in need of four male dog names for Scotties and three female names. And since these dogs are French, they can have French dog names but maybe not Brigitte, even if there is a famous Brigitte known for her love of animals.
So go ahead, name those puppies with great dog names.
P.S. We’re being kind to Brigitte and opting for the glamour shot.
