Reply:How about Erin? But first, remember that she isn't going to be a puppy forever, so think about a name for a full-grown dog. Is your last name Irish? Vets often list animals by first and last name.





The site below has names with phonetic spellings, meanings, and a "listen" button.





Best of luck with the wee pup!
Reply:If you are Irish you could look to see what clan your last name falls into.





Casey means brave.





Colleen is very irish and means "Irish girl" (the only more Irish name I think is "Erin" which actually means "Ireland")





Enya (like the singer!) means "little fire"





Keitha means "female warrior"





Nelia or Neila means "champion"
Reply:Whatever you do, don't name it Spunky ;) It's such a common name...I can't believe all the dogs don't get confused.





I would name it something interesting. Citrus? Placenta? Kronk? Can't give any Irish ones though...:)

Reply:Molly or Shannon immediately come to mind. Maybe Shamrock.





Why not name her after towns or counties in Ireland... like... Limerick, Tory, Kerry, Clare, Derry, Cork (Corky).
