Naming a Dog

We’re still thinking about getting a dog. We really want one, but one thing after another has forced the actual procurement back week after week after week. The other day, Cowgrit contacted me through instant messenger with a link to some puppy pictures. Then we started talking about names for a new dog.

Our first dog’s name was Geordi — from Geordi La Forge on Star Trek: The Next Generation. We were both STTNG fans, and we both liked the name. For this time, though, it seems we don’t have a commonly-liked source to pull from.
