    Official Dove names would be:

    Mourning Dove
    Rock Dove
    White Winged Dove
    Eurasian Collared Dove
    Spotted Dove
    Inca Dove
    Common Ground Dove
    Ruddy Ground Dove
    White Tipped Dove
    Ringed Turtle Dove
    Spotted Dove

    In your area the White Winged Dove is prevalent so I would think "White Wing" would be a good name. Very American Indian. "Little White Wing" too would be good.

    Or "Little Wing" of which there is a great titled song by Jimi Hendrix.

    I'm a bit too into bird watching for my own good.
