G.I. Goody

Okay, instead of doing the normal Sunday Funnies today, I've decided to offer up some more G.I. Goodies! There's a new Yorkie puppy on the way, so I need help picking out a name for her. Here's what the winner gets:
  • 10 yards of ribbon
  • Prima flowers
  • Bazzill flowers
  • Foofala buttons
  • Rub-ons
  • "Honk if you Scrapbook!" sign
  • ...and more!!!
The rules of this contest are easy:
  1. Puppy name suggestions must be made by leaving a comment to this post.
  2. You may suggest as many names as you'd like.
  3. You have one week to nominate.

I will pick my favorite name and announce the winner on my blog next week. Be creative!

I have always liked the name *Scrappy* for a puppy and it fits scrapping too.

Estivalia said...

I will go with "Paisley" since it is my favourite shape and sounds cute ;)

I'll put on my thinking cap and try to come up with other names later :)

Carol said...

I like Princess for a Yorkie since they are so easy to spoil. :)

Is the puppy a boy or a girl?

Carol said...

Oops. I see that you said "her" so that tells me it's a girl. lol Not too quick today, am I?

Daquiri is a fun name, and Chick or Chickie. I'll come back if I remember more.

Kathy W said...

Congrats on getting a new puppy!! The names that come to mind are:
PC (for peaches and cream)

Thanks for the chance to win your goodies and good luck with your new friend (hope you'll post a picture).

Heather Leech said...

Hmmm...I volunteer at our SPCA and have to come up with names for our cats, although we often stick to 'people names' as we try to be a little bit original. Assuming it is a girl, how about Molly, Martini (tini for short - we actually own twin cats that are named Martini and Rossi), Sadie, Emily, Munchkin, Peanut, Libby...
I'm running out. Good luck with your new puppy!!

We had a toy poodle that was a white fluff as a pup, and we named her Minni since she was so small. It fit her well. :)

My adorable pups name is Justice...and my next pup will be named Liberty.

Shannon McGann said...

Congratulations on your new puppy! We had a little cocker spaniel named Bandit - she was a cutie. I always liked that name. Another we had was named Muppet.

When I was younger my grandma had an elderly couple that lived next door to her named Doc and Tinsy. I have a Chihuahua and have kicked myself several times for not naming her Tinsy. Hope you like them. :)

Kristine said...

My Mom had two yorkies, one was Buttons and the other Gidget.

scfranson said...

I like Emma, Lizzie, Mops, Bruno, Brutus, Flower, Daisy, Skippy.

Elaine said...

How about Nikki? Or Tiki-Tembo?

I was going to say these: Emma, Abbie, and Bandit but those were already listed.
My kids are saying to tell you to call the puppy "Woofie".

Good luck! Puppies are sooooo cute! I can't wait to see her on your blog!

Linda Yamakido said...

Cupcake,Cookie,Sugar,Sweetie,Diva,,,Thanks for the candy offer,,,

Peggy Maier said...

Debbie/StudioBeeCreations said...

Debbie/StudioBeeCreations said...

jodene said...

My suggestion is "Lady B"


wanda box said...

hi laura,
new puppy how fun, ok how about Sparkles or Lacey?

shmints said...

I believe it's not a good example, but after having a dog named "psycho" (my brother named it) - I named the next dog "mad" (mad dog! :-)) - she was the opposite of mad, but she didn't understand the meaning... LOL
After many years my brother named his puppy "push".
These are my suggestions.. LOL

~*~Dena~*~ said...

Hi, Congrats on your new baby.
They are true companions, and will love you no matter what.
I have a name and I love it.
I use to have a Bishon and named her Popcorn Polly. For short I called her Popsie. I hope you like.
God bless!

ejones said...

We recently got a Boston Terrier puppy and my husband really wanted to name her Diva, but my kids didn't like it. He still might be a little bitter about it, so I thought he might feel better if someone named their dog Diva.

Sarah said...

Chloe,Cherry,Molly :P

Amie said...

Puppies are so cute. I like Indie or Zoe'...

Good luck choosing a name, Just yell it out realllllly LOUD before you decide. You might not like the sound of it when you have to yell it all the time. LMAO :o)

foodpartyfun said...

I am going to suggest Bella, since she is a girl.


Suzy said...

I LOVE human names for pets. They are our kids, after all :) For a cute little Yorkie girl since this is G.I. Goodies, how about Jane? Simple and sweet and so unexpected for a dogbaby.If you want more sophisticated, I love the name Bella or Olivia and you could call her Ollie for short. Oh I like that.

Denise said...

I have always had BIG dogs so naming a small one is weird for me!

how about Sgt. Slaughter??


Annemiek said...

That'll be so much to have a puppy around. My parents just got two new kittens and named them Jeffrey and Verona. So that's going to be my suggestion :)

Alison Molumby said...

Awww! Yorkie puppies are just the cutest! Like Carol, I always imagine Yorkies as princesses with little tiaras on... how about Little Miss Thing?

Alison Molumby said...

My DDs just chimed in with "Sophie!" They just love Yorkie puppies.

LIZZEE said...


LIZZEE said...

Okay here goes not sure if it's a boy or girl.(i hit the send on other to quickly


Tina said...

I just got a new puppy too, but a boy.

Here are a few:


Angel Wilde said...

I guess I better quit there. I love naming things. :-) Hope you figure out a cool name!

Rita said...

I have to say Cappy, Cherio, Gabby or Trixie. I like those names. Congrats on your Yorkie & enjoy!


Sheila R. said...

Scrappy or Scrapper

Lilian said...

i would suggest "caramel" or "rocky road"... :)

Mary said...

I can't believe nobody has said, "Baby" b/c that's what I end up calling all my matter what their real name is. My sister has a Yorkie named Evie.
I love Yorkies!

Brendoll said...

Ok since you are Babydoll of course I will suggest Doll..knowing you with the Paisley thats a true fit always, however I can see you with a puppy named " Breit " as in Mary Englebreit ! ( our fav ). My husband had a dog named " Puddles " for obvious reasons, he was a cutie pants. My favorite dog was " Gypsie" ...and now for my final suggestion...
" Brie "
Have fun and can't wait to see the pics !

Julie Sturgeon said...

I'm a big proponent of naming a dog something other than a "human" name. Mainly because you just don't name your child Coach or Rascal, so why not take advantage of the chance to widen the creative pool with a pet?

We named our Labrador "Dribbler." My brother had dogs named Hoopster, Rebound and Shooter (whose brother he named Leaver -- say them together and you get a country western song) so everybody in my family understood instantly what I was honoring with the Dribbler name.

We're Hoosiers, you understand.

But a lot of folks outside the inner circle thought we named him after his urinary habits. Which, for a small dog, might be appropriate!

Wife2TJ said...

Just had to say I love Yorkie's and can't wait to see your new baby when you get her.

I love the names

Lily (love this one)
Abby or Abigail

Hope you find a name you love and PLEASE post lots of pictures :-)

dasimonds said...

Jan Scholl said...

How about Fuego which is SPanish for fire?

Or spirit, just because it sound cool?

Or jessie-good for a boy or girl?

Nikki said...

I like the name Daphnee.....very femine and cute! I also like Kloie...seem how that's my dogs name...Good luck picking one!

Debbie/StudioBeeCreations said...

I hope second guesses count! ( or is this my third???) about Boots BAREFOOT????? I LOVE IT!!....or is Boots a cat name?.....Can't wait to see her!....Maybe you'll start SCRAPPING!!!

Janet Allen said...

Congrat's on the new little one:) My daughter & I put our heads together and came up with our list.

Cossette************Cheyenne Venus***************Daphne

Brenda B. said...

Lexy came up with a few names I thought I might add...Chicklet and Buttons.

I also like Layla...from the song. But my friends dog is named that.

Arual is Laura spelled backwards !

Have fun naming her, I never could name anything until I actually held them for a few days and saw their personality.

Denise said...

Tansy...LOVE that name, don't know why, but I think it's so cute.

Michaela said...

Márcia Mattos said...

Sheila R said...

How about:
Jas (short for Jazmine)

selina m said...

how about Snoopy , Missy, Precious, Lovey :)

Ruth said...

Duchess the Yorkie---sounds sorta regal.

Ruth said...

I lay in bed last night thinking about this. (Do you think I need counseling?)If it had been a boy---definitely Haus, but Sophie is petite sounding.

Penny said...

Ahhhh! I am so jealous. I have been wanting a Yorkie since I was in 5th grade and still don't have one. I keep asking, but no Yorkie yet. Hopefully some day. Well, I'm going to suggest Gracie! Thanks for letting me try for some blog candy and also, I love your blog.

Brian said...

Well I don't want to win but you asked for my input so how about Daisy , or Lady, or Precious.

cndymkr said...

For a boy I like Brutus, Buddy, Rocky, Roscoe or Bullet.

For a girl I like Princess, Jewel, Abby or Sweetie.

Tina said...

Ok, don't know if you were/ are a fan of Sex & the City, but,

Charlotte York(ie)

is a very cute name.


Sue said...

I love puppies and I love picking names for them too ;)

My fave names at the moment would Roxy for a girl and Charlie for a boy or a girl - it is a little hard though since I like to choose names that match the personality.

Cant wait to see a pic of your new buddy :)

Scrappychick said...

My kids' suggestions: Scrappy, Polka Dot, Scrap Dawg or Scrap Dogg, Michael (my 4 year old), Sari, Doodle, or Goober.

Kathy W said...

Last minute names...scanned the list and didn't see these:


Melanie Welch said...

How about Pepper? Her fur is brown and ground pepper. I had a shih-tzu that was those colors and that's the name I chose for her. BTW her mom's name is Sugar and the very first name I came up with was Splenda....cause she was made from sugar...HA I said if she ever had pups I would name them Cinnamon, nutmeg, Ginger and basil, with a short A. Oh another fun name is Cayenne. I guess I like spice names.

Shannon McGann said...

I just saw your photo of your puppy! She's so adorable! I'm feeling the name Snuffy now for her. What do you think?! :)


i need one of those window signs,'honk if your cardmake!'
love your blog!
