    Here are some of our ideas, but there are none that appeal to both my wife and I:


    Ren (from the Ren and Stimpy cartoon)

    Fenrir, or Fenris (the wolf son of Loki, the Germanic God of Mischief)

    Argos (Odysseus' dog)

    Bacchus (Roman God of Wine)

    Ajax (Champion of the Greeks)

    Winston (as in Churchill)

    Puck (from Shakespeare, a forest sprite or little devil)

    Gordon (after a Highland regiment that was disbanded)

    Hobson (my best friend's last name)

    I like Hobson - it reminded me of the movie Arthur with Dudley Moore - his butler was named Hobson. [​IMG]

    I have a new favorite: Aegis, meaning "shield", or "protection".

    She Who Must be Obeyed doesn't like it, though. [​IMG]
