Our new-to-us puppy is a 7 month old boy whippet. His ex-owner called him Tigger, and try as I might to avoid being the species police... Tigger is a cat name, not a dog name! We do like names from fiction generally, books, movies, etc.
If we'd got a greyhound we might have called him Bunter (from the Lord Peter Wimsey books), but this fella doesn't look like a Bunter to us. If he was a girl we'd call her Ripley (from Aliens). Maybe a Discworld or Pixar name?
