        I love Shrek, therefore our female dog is named Fiona after Princess Fiona in the Shrek movies. Fits her to a tee, only she is the Queen of the house!

        My little girls name is Notacat. We like unique names. We try to fit the personality. Our precious Boston Terrier, came to our house where only cats live. Therefore her name is Notacat.
        loved the article on 2016 names.

        My female dog is named Shellie. She origionally was Michelle! Foster family called her Shellie. She was two yrs. old.
        My female dog before her was named Katie. We kept Katie. She was a year old.
        Both adopted and pre-named.
        I don’t think it is appropriate to change a name they have been called their whole life. Only adds to more confusion for the dog. thanks, Lori
