I am getting a Dutch shepherd puppy soon and I am looking for the perfect name for him! In my opinion a DS needs a royal/divine/strong name, and it has to have a strong meaning as well.

Until now I have found names within the cathegories ancient Rome/Greece and Old norse mythology.
Ancient Rome/Greece: Ares, Remus, Orion and Hermes.
Old norse mythology: Freke/Freki (Odins wolf), Garm (watchdog), Jarfi (wolverine) and Thyr/Týr (God of single combat and heroic glory, and it also means bull in Norwegian).

Other names: Raptor, Zephyr (love it, but I am a little bit unsure about how it sounds).

It is important to me that it is not a common name which is why I love Vesuv so much. Ares has also been a strong name on the list, but as it is pretty common I can't fully accept it. I thought Raptor was awesome and special...until a dutch shepherd puppy in my community was named that :cry:

I am grateful for every suggestion, and also feel free to "vote" for which names from my list that you like best c:
