New yellow lab pup - need a name

The current front-runners are Gunner and Rhodie. Bullet is not off the list yet, but about everything else I have thought of she has crossed out. Suggestions from the tribe???

This is supposed to be her dog and a companion for our boxer (except for dove season of course when I will claim him ), but he is in my shop and I seem to be the one not getting much done the last two days

Barney (Rubble), BamBam, Crockett. Rhodie sounds great.

Too many of you think like me, but:
-Crockett
-Trump (Trumpster)
-Gauge
-Patton
-Hunter
Have all been already crossed off the list by my Managing Director.

Andy is on track of my most prevalent conversations with the new pup which are:
-NO
-Good boy
-Come here

I had a Husky named "stupid". He mostly lived up to his name. My son had a Chocolate lab named "Thunder", biggest Lab I have ever seen. Well over 100 pounds with paws 4" across.

I sure miss Sam, after the year ends I hope to get a pup to be my friend. Right now it's just too difficult by myself to care for one but soon as the holidays are done my life starts again. Going to name him Colt.

For field dogs,I usually try to pick a name starting with a hard consonant,and two syllables.. Something you can project across a field,with authority. Rhodie isn't bad. Single consonents or name that start with a vowel just don't seem to carry far,and are often kinda hard to really shout.

I hate to give this up, but my attempts to name our last two dogs has been outvoted by you know who...

"Yebo" - pronounced "yay-boh".

When I was in Zimbabwe years ago this was used as a familiar greeting, almost like "hey boy" but in reality in Ndebele it means "yes". I always thought it would be a good name for a male dog. If you want to keep with a Rhodesian/South African theme you might be able to make this one work with Blondezilla.

Good luck.

Cute pup.

I heard it pronounced "Ya-bo" as in "Ya-Bo Engoza"

I kind like the name Ranger or Zeus. It looks like he has some large paws which is an indication that he will a large lab.

Chester is a great name if he were a Chesapeake Bay retriever.
