I have to admit - I'm a sucker for nicely themed names for sets of dogs. What are the best ones you've encountered?

My favorite all-time was a pair of Pit Bulls named Triumph and Harley. It was just so appropriate to their personalities, too.

In the near-miss category, there was a pair of Poodles named Wellie (Wellington) & Nelson. It would have been perfect if they were Bulldogs, but they still could have pulled it off with any breed besides Poodles.

At the animal shelter, I met a litter of Lab pups named Jan, Marsha, Cindy, Greg, Peter, and Bobby.

I also enjoyed Mowgli & Baloo, and Harriet & Matilda.

My boyfriend got really excited when I told him we could name two Shepherds Smith & Wesson

Well there goes that idea xD (I try to avoid names that are terribly common, so out is Remington too, he'll be upset, lol).

well now i feel bad :( just dont tell him, and i doubt we will be getting any new pups anytime the future.

i think it would be oddly funny to name a pair of dachshunds oscar and meyer!

and my cousin once dated a guy, she was a white sox fan and he was a cubs fan, so they named their 2 cockers sox and cubs.

a friend once had a pair of rats named hansel and gretel.

LOL, he wouldn't care, I just do.

It's why I don't have animals named Sam or Max, and hate the name of the Labrador (Buddy).

I've only ever seen two other dogs named Strauss, and they were both named for the jeans guy

Hershey, KitKat, Twizzler, Snickers, Sobe

i get creative with names...

Bear came with his name but it is my favorite name for dogs. I grew up with a dobie named bear and had a few fosters with that name.

I'm yet to meet a non-human Kim or a Webster of any species but they aren't exactly themed...

However the best theme I've heard was a lady I met recently who, over the years, has named all her female dogs after flowers and all her males after weeds, which I found very cute and funny. I believe her current dogs were Violet (f), Lily (f), and Thistle (m).

The first "theme" pet I had was my old man siamese mix Vandal, who I had to send to the bridge a week ago. Miss you my Vanman!

The theme is "delinquents and the 'hood":
Vandal (siamese x)
Tagger (tabby DSH)
Cracker (foxhound/lab) she came from a crackhouse..so she really IS from the hood.

I also knew a client at the AH that had all of her MANY rescue cats named after plants/flowers:
Hyacinth
Tiger Lily
Tansy and Teasle
Hawthorne
Lupin
etc

The best names I came across were JDM (just doesn't matter) for a deaf white cat and Petunia for the nicest female akita I ever met.

Law and Order names, of course ;) We've got District Attorney Jack McCoy and we know a pup named Detective Lennie Briscoe. We named one of our foster dogs Detective Elliott Stabler.

Though, I have to warn you, Jack was listed as "DA Jack McCoy" at the vet for a while. Not good to have an abbreviation that could also mean dog aggressive.
