Names for a red (male) puppy?

My family and I are having a really hard time coming up with a list of names for our new pup. He won't be coming home for a couple months, but still... it'd be nice to have some name ideas. Anyone know of any words that mean red or brown that would make for a good male name? I looked up names for apples and chocolates today and found a few that are ok, but would like more ideas. It's hard when a family has to decide/agree on a name... so it's good to have a list to choose from.



So far I've found:

Callebaut (Bo for short)
Crillo (Kree - oh)
Spy
Dulcet
Pilot

I like the first three.. but am not sure about the last two. I also really like the name Gauge, but my breeder's already had a dog with that name and we're trying to avoid repeats. I'd thought of Crusoe too, but nobody else likes it. The litter theme is "rip, tear, torn" for the reg. names, but I don't care if the call name matches really. Any suggestions are appreciated!

Edit: Here's a list of names we've had for past dogs, just so you know what we definitely won't use...

Echo
Tango
Sabi
Sky
Jesse
Winston



Journey - Oracle Twist of Fate TreeStarr
Ripley
Dance - Tollwest's Dancing In Style CGN FM RN

I like it, but I have a cousin named Aiden. We don't see him often, but I don't think my family would be thrilled with us having a dog by the same name, haha. I think Sue's had an Aiden too -- a female though.

My favorite kind of thread!

Ever thought of naming him after a red wine?
I thought 'Nebbiolo' was a cute one, I'm sure there would be fun nicknames with that.
Seriously, I just googled a list of wines, and being 19 and knowing nothing about wine I just picked a word I liked.

Rowan is evidently Gaelic, and means "red haired" or "rugged"

Kona is a kind of coffee. I like the name, but it might be a little feminine...

Aethon means 'fiery red'

That's all I've got for now, it's late. Good luck on the name search!

Very cute photo! Must be exciting waiting now for him to grow up a bit is he far away from you? Can you visit him every so often?

I have a dark red male and we named him Choco as for Chocolate and his registered name is Dark Chocolini.

Here are some sweet options for you with a culinary twist:

Capo or Cino (Tchee-no)pronunced like in word 'Cappucino'
Carmel
Toffee
Coffee

Hmmm there must be more in this category!

Oooh I like Crillo, Rosso and Cedar.... I LOVE original names! Too many "Rusty"s and "Buddy"s already... If he were mine, I'd go with Crillo, never met a Crillo before thats so original and easy to say...

I knew a red (chestnut) horse named Roanoke and I always loved that name. Your baby is beautiful. Good luck and let us know what you pick. By the way Tango is a great name!

Red Rock National Parks in Utah as a twist here: These are a list of names because I originally wanted a red, ended up with a black but here ya go...

Bryce (Bryce Canyon National Park incredible red rock formations)
Sedona (red rock city in Arizona) maybe too girly but I like it.
Canyon (for the red rock park or the Grand Canyon.
Zion (although not a red rock park it is an incredible park and majestic, I love the name Zion, sounds strong and in charge.
Arches (Archie) for Arches National park, another red rock park...

Okay see here lol

Thanks everyone! I really like some of them, and have written them down.

To those who asked if I'm able to visit, I'm actually living with and taking care of the litter right now. Their breeder likes someone here with them 24/7, so I said I'd stay for a while so she can go to work without worrying. The original name we thought we might use doesn't seem to suit him anymore now that I've gotten to know him a little... so I'll save that one for another dog.
