    My wife and I are adopting this Springer from Springer Rescue and we need ideas for a name. Right now they call her Olivia.....we want something else.

    SO, something southern and for a girl....she's an 8 month old liver tri-color field bred and here she is....

    Very cute, but I doubt you want my vote. I named all my dogs after characters from Magnum PI. :mrgreen:

    I voted Liberty Belle, but my opinion is biased.

    Here is a picture of myself and my Liberty.

    A lot of the ease in training a dog comes from choosing a single syllable call name, and preferably one beginning with a hard consonant. "Brit", "Gyp" come to mind. Keep it short, with a hard consonant, and your training becomes much easier.

    Sorry - you definitely don't want my input: my two Bassett Hounds are named "Cletus" and "Eustace".

    We had a rescue Springer that passed away earlier this year. Her name was Daphne.

    Why not Belle? That's pretty Southern. Beautiful animal too. Good luck, and thanks for taking her in.

    I looked at that dog and my first thought was, looks like a "Libby". It's the ears. She looks friendly.

    Penny.

    Springers are great dogs, especially around family and friends both young and old. My mother in law would name her dogs after soap opera characters, politicians, shakespeare characters, etc.... One dog I have now his first name was Bill, but was later renamed to Roy.

    Congratulations on the adoption.
