    Buck (Bucky?) I've always thought would be a good name.

    Other than that my dogs I've had have been named Lady and Coco. I didn't name them. Lady was meant to be a bird dog but never picked it up, and somehow the name came out of that, Coco was named Coco because she was cocoa colored.

    Other pet names I have suggested that have been used include Gus, and Marmalade (for an orange cat the color of orange marmalade).

    Resist the temptation to name your dog after a gun, it leads to confusing situations. Yes I have experience with this.

    Do not name your dog "Dog". Yes I have experience with this.

    Do not name your dog "The Damn Dog" or any variation thereof. Yes I have experience with this.

    Honestly I'd wait until I had the dog for a couple days... something random usually pops into your head at this point that sticks.

    Oh man I am envious of you!! I had an Irishman years ago that was a wonderful dawg. He was from extremely good bloodlines, and I got him when his owner a bench/field trial competitor had some health problems and judged my home as worthy of having one of their prize dawgs.

    He was simply amazing. He trained himself by just doing whatever my Golden Retriever did on command.

    I have never seen a dawg with as much heart as that dawg had!!

    May your pup turn out to be even better than my beloved Shaw.

    Oh yeah, as for names, how about "Brady" or "Clancy".

    Here is a link to some Irish names:

    Brady means "spirited" and Clancy means "red headed fighter".

    Good idea Euc - that'd mean Bud could have an ''and/or/nor'' dog

    I normally let the name come to me, if you think about it things get frustrating and your start to second guess yourself.

    I promiss you that after having him home a couple of days his name will come to you and you will know for sure that's it.

    I have a Choc Lab named "Jackson" "Jackson Brown" and not after the singer but his color. It took me like a week until the name came to me and I wasn't even thinking about it at all. His papered name is Show Me's Ultimate Six Gun and that wasn't going to work out as his everyday name so Jackson it was.

    It will come to you just be patient!

    My best friend had a female Irish Setter when I was growing up and that was the best watch dog ever. When I first started going over there I thought that I was going to die! turned out we became best friends too, she was a great dog and very protective of her family. You did good choosing one.

    An Irish Setter eh?

    How about Guinness?

    or Shamus? A friend of mine back in grade school had an Irish Setter named Shamus...dumb as a post but about the friendliest dog you ever met, and just about the perfect dog for a grade school aged boy (and a rowdy one at that).

    Also growing up I remember my aunt had an Irish Setter/Golden Retriever mix (picture a Golden Retriever in the red color of the Setter). His name was Kelly ... he was a pretty good farm dog. She also had a Quarter Horse in the same color named Rex. The horse and the dog where like litter mates (both in looks and in the fact that they were inseparable).


    Let us know what you end up with.
