Eek, she's coming next week and we still don't have a name picked out.

 

We live on an island and we love to travel to warm destinations, but are really stumped on nautical or tropical names fitting for a huge dog. If you have any suggestions at all, I'd love to hear them!

 

So far the front runners are:

Happy

Sula (pronounced soo-la meaning little she-bear)

Sadie

Maya

 

She's here! Updated picture in post #24.

OOOH she's so cute! I have no tropical/ nautical name ideas. Somehow, I think of Belle or Zoey when I see her photo. She's adorable!

Tallulah - I love that name and it means Leaping Water in Choctaw.  I would probably call her Lulah.

 

Nalu means ocean wave in Hawaiian.

 

Of the ones you have listed, I like Sula the best.  It means little bear by the water in Hawaiian, too, which is adorable for her.

I like Sula, but you might want to wait until meeting her until you choose a name... something may click then.  We didn't have most of our kids names decided until they were kicking us out of the hospital.  :)

Awww, what a cutie.  I grew up with Newfies, and there's nothing like them.  

 

I like Sunny or names from your favorite books.  If we had gotten a Nova Scotia duck tolling retriever, he or she would have been Trumpkin or Crumpet after Narnia characters (or the snack), but those are names for a more petite dog, not a Newf.  Of the ones you've listed, I also like Sula best.

 

You know you must post pics when you get her.  Board rules.

Sula is really cute and the meaning sounds perfect.

Another thought that I had is the Hawaiian word Kahuna, as in The Big Kahuna. Among it's meanings is "the biggest and the best" (such as a recognized expert in a field). It is gender neutral.

Nui meaning something like big or great in Hawaiian
Splash is our dog's name he's a Portuguese water dog though
Calypso and Sundance were on our list along with Bubbles
Keona

I really like Sula as well. She looks really sweet. Love the breed, just can't deal with the hair.

Thank you so much everyone for all of these wonderful suggestions! We pick her up Wednesday night, and it feels like the anticipation of Christmas Eve as a child.

 

I am having so much fun researching name meanings, and these suggestions all fit perfectly. We stumbled on a town in Newfoundland named Happy-Adventure ( http://en.wikipedia....Happy_Adventure ) that may have been named after a pirate ship, so Happy is still a front runner too. I'm sure once we see her it will make the naming so much easier, but at least now we have a wonderful list to pick from!

Thank you again!

She's here and is as cute as a button! We are all absolutely head over heels in love with our new fuzzy family member. It's looking like Happy is sticking for a name.

Oh my goodness, there's just nothing cuter.  Love that your daughter dressed to match her!  We had a Newf named Happy when I was a kid.  Love it!

That is a very sweet photo. Those are some impressive paws! I think Newfoundlands are great dogs. I've only known two up close and personal, but they were both sweethearts.

You are the reason why dd has not finished her report on Clara Barton.  She is suffering from CPD - Cute Puppy Distraction, which meant she needed to self-medicate by giving our big pulp a belly rub. 

 

ETA:  Your pup is adorable.  I want to hug a Newfie right now!

Hi - Congrats on your new puppy!   

 

My name is Sula!  And I too am a brown, female Newfoundland puppy.  I am 11 months old.  It is a derivation from Ursula (Norweigan - not Hawaiian like somewhere on the web says - there is no "s" in the Hawaiian language.  Mom grew up there, so she should know).  In fact, "Ursula" is used a lot in kennel names and newfoundland dog names in Europe frequently. 

 

Have you had a Newf before? 

 

Unfortunately, I am diabled with something uncommon in Newfs.  I just launched my website, www.sulathenewfie.com this last weekend to educate people about it. 

 

If youi aren't already, I highly recommend you join some of the Newf forums on Facebook.  They provide a lot of info on Newf puppy rearing, and the Newfoundland Club of America also has a good puppy section too.

 

If you have any questions, please feel free contact me at [email protected]

 

Please continue to share pictures!!!  Newf puppies are the cutest!!!

What a beautiful dog!!!!! Newfies are my favorite breed (except they grow too big for my house). Enjoy your new animal!
