Not having a dog has left a big hole in our lives. We weren't looking to get another dog soon but a series of events led us to this guy. Now for a name.
At first Lincoln seemed OK but it doesn't fit a Golden Retriever. Joe the Dog was also ruled out and all of my ideas have been shot down. Banquo from MacBeth, Barre after Isaac Barre and Durkee as in Maj. John Durkee, one of the founders of Wilkes-Barre. We have 2 weeks to come up with a name.
Damn Gort, he's beautiful! Maybe you should call him "Blog!"
Then you could Blog about "Blog" the dog!
A few come to mind
Beamer- it could have a couple meanings but mine is that obviously not looking for a dog there was something beaming about this dog that gave you direction to follow your series of events.
Gordie or Gortie- too obvious to explain
Thompson- another no brainer
Incubus- a little research, only you will get the meaning
Babe Elvis- because I do pay attention
Phil or Phirst- everything about that name is phantastic
I like to name pets after the detectives in the mystery novels that I read. So, how about Hamish after MC Beaton's Hamish Macbeth? Or, Roderick, after Ngaio Marsh's Roderick Alleyn?
I'm a fan of the comics - Opus, Calvin, Hobbs, Daisy, Dagwood, Phamtom, Flash, Lucy, and my favorite - Dilbert.
Not as refined as others, but fun.
Thanks everyone for your great suggestions. I prefer a historical/polical name that ends in "y". Our last 2 dogs were Gorby and Humphrey and the cat's name is Ptolomey. I also had a cat named Indira Gandhi. Mrs G wants a cross reference to a cartoon like Humphrey the Bear. God help us, he may never get a name.
Gort, how about:
How about Leslie? As in Leslie King, AKA Gerald Ford.
How about: FLYER
Call him FLYER
I prefer a historical/polical name that ends in "y".
Rocky...as in one hell of a rocky year.
Bucky...as in pass the buck.
And not name that ends in "Y" but I had a dog that we called D-O-G.
Keep us posted on the final choice.

We're on our way to pick him up. The name will be revealed later tonight or tomorrow. Along with some pictures.
