My Name Is .....
It’s sometimes really hard to find a suitable and original name for a pup and I often find myself struggling. Anyway I thought I’d share with you the names of our “Kids,” original or not, and their meaning
Kiri – The origin of the name Kiri is Cambodian and means "Mountain." The Hindu girls name Kiri is simply "Flower."
Kai - In American Kai means "Ocean," but its Scottish meaning is "Fire." Strangely the Welsh meaning for Kai is "keeper of the Keys." His full name is Kaiser which originated in German and means "leader.”
Asha - In Arabian, the name Asha means- "hope" or "wish." Other origins for the name Asha are Indian.
- familiar form of of the name Daniella. I wanted to call Lia Danni back
in 1997 but with Seffe brother already being Danny I though it may cause
confusion. Daniella means “God is my judge!”
– “The origin of the name is Hebrew. Ziva sounds like Zivah, Zeeva or
Xeva. The meaning of Ziva is
radiance, splendour, brilliance, brightness or light of God." But
again, I first heard the name on TV. Ziva David (Pronounced Daveed) is a fictional
character from the NCIS television series a former Israeli Mossad Liaison
Officer, she is now a Special Agent for NCIS
This is where it gets interesting!
– she’s not Jessie, Jess, Jessy or Jessica her name is Jezi Baba - but
Jezi will do!
NICO - the meaning of "Nico" in Welsh is Goldfinch. Nico is commonly heard in Italy--as a short form of Niccolo, Nico is one of the great nickname names, full of charm, energy and sex appeal.
LOKI - is the Norse God of trickery, mischief, and change; a major character in Norse Mythology. Blood-brother of Odin and traveling companion and friend of Thor; his wife’s name is Sigyn, his children’s names are Hel, Fenris, Jormungandr, Vali, Narfi and Sleipnir. Loki is pleasing and handsome in appearance according to the Eddas. He is renown for his cleverness and for helping the Gods out after he has gotten them into trouble as well as his great ability to make them laugh and cheer them up.
The Older Generation
Blade -as a boy's name is pronounced blayd. It is of Old English origin, and the meaning of Blade is "knife or sword" For me the first dog I ever took into the show ring as a child was a Rough Collie called Blade. I swore then that my first GSD would also be christened Blade.
Nikki -Diminutive form of Nicole, The meaning of the name Nikki is 'Victory of the people'
Dexi - Variant of Dexter, Originally from Greek "Dexi's" meaning is "worship"
Seffe - I have no idea of the meaning of the first name "Seffe." I simply took the name from her pedigree, one of her German grandmothers was "Seffe Vom Huhnegrab."
Simba - as a boy's name is of Swahili origin, and the meaning of Simba is "lion".
Lia - The Greek Baby Girl Name Lia means - bringer of good news. I use the name as she was the smallest bitch in the litter, being a play on the Welsh word for Smallest1
Krizzie - One we made up I'm afraid, though pronounced similarly to Chrissie with clear emphasis on the Z. I have goggled it found others with the same name, but there is no meaning that I can find.
Jay - When he arrived here he was called Jacob ... which I didn't like, so he became "Jay" which is a Latin meaning Blue crested bird. (For me Jay also has George Michael Connections as Jay is one of GM's backing vocalists)
Storm - Came here with her name, I think she was called after a baseball team ... or something like that. To me she was just a Storm in a tea cup!!!
