I've been contemplating names for the forthcoming canine addition to my life. I haven't made any decisions yet, so suggestions are welcome!
I'd sort of like to name him after a theologian I like. (I decided on favored theologians after contemplating heretics and realizing that their names don't generally flow well when you're yelling a dog's name. Try screaming for "Arius" or "Pelagius;" it just doesn't work.) I think "Kuyper" would be a perfect dog name, except that the parents already have a corner on the "iper" dog-name market with Piper. I also like the name "Vos," but it's also a bit hard to yell.
Other names that I like are "Luke" (the name of the Black Lab Beanie Baby, I believe), "Abe," and "Albert."
