Chihuahuas named Timkerbelll and Bambi.”

For example, if you need a name for your Labrador Retriever, you should know this is not only the most popular dog breed in the United States, it is a loyal, loving and strong-spirited dog. As an outstanding hunting dog, names for your Lab might be tailored to that characteristic, too. Some of my favorite Labrador dog names include Bailey (the name of my Chocolate Lab), Daisy (for a Yellow lab), and Blacky (the name of my friend’s Black Lab when I was a kid).

Chihuahua names is another of the more popular categories on the list. If you follow the news, you have certainly heard of Paris Hilton and her Chihuahuas named Tinkerbell and Bambi. I also love Gizmo and Harley.
