Puppy Naming!

So in a couple of weeks this guy will be coming home, he's a wire-haired pointing griffon and we are having a hard time finding a good name. Contenders so far are Fred and Bruno. So in time honored mefi tradition help me find the perfect name!

Fred, after Fred "the Crime Dog" McGriff.

He looks like he needs an old man name like Henry or Fred or George.

Rufus! Feels like a good moniker for a sweet little scruffy guy.

Congratulations on your new family addition!

He is Theodore.

(Yes, I am reading The Bully Pulpit right now. What a great namesake -- energetic, athletic, loving to his family, progressive, fun.)

Tache (pronounced like rhyming with "gosh") It's French for "spot."

Liking the old man names Bert, Fred, and George but Sherlock, Sherman and Rufus are fun too.. It's so difficult!

Bruno popped into my head as soon as I saw his ADORABLE picture, before I even read your second sentence.
