What are good dog names for a Boy dog?

My parents and I just adopted a new puppy from a rescue organization. He comes home this saturday! We cant decide on a name we all like. Right now we are thinking about Yoshi Kona. (middle name being Kona) Yoshi was my Uncles hawaiian name who passed away this past summer, and Kona is a hawaiian name that we just liked..it means wind i believe.

However we're not sure if we are really satisfied with that name. Does anyone have any ideas? My mom wants something kind of different...but not too...weird....lol. can anyone help?

I don't know why, but "Reggie" popped into my mind.

I do like Yoshi. I would stick with that and see what comes naturally for a 2nd name after you own the pup for awhile. You may just like Yoshi, or you might find something perfect that goes along with it. Our dog Chloe was "just" Chloe, now a lot of the time she is "Chloe Belle", our dog Henry was just "Henry" but somewhere along the line a middle name of "Henry James" was added. Your new addition is ADORABLE, btw!

I really like the name Yoshi that you picked out. It means something to you and you really dont hear it that much. Unique.

I love the name Yoshi Kona. YOu have a very cute story behind the name and it will be a great conversation starter when you and your dog meet new people!

I like Yoshi Kona! Its an interesting name and it has a great story behind it. Now you have a conversation starter when people ask about your dog's name! I did the same kind of thing when I got my dog. I opened a map of Alaska and just started reading off names of places I'd been. Kenai was both a town and river that I spent every weekend rafting and fishing in, during the summer as a child and during college breaks. Now when people meet Kenai for the first time they ask me what it means and I have a unique story to tell them. Yoshi Kona will bring you much pleasure...both the name and the dog ;)

There are many web sites with searchable databases of dog names to browse. Try this one www.dog-names.us/
or just google dog names. That's what I did when we brought home a shelter dog a few weeks ago.
