Funny you should ask that! We also have a Min-Pin female, and we call her Flicka. You can use that if you like. Whatever name you choose, try to find something that conveys the energy of a Min-Pin.

She doesn't sound like a Fang, Grip, or Wolf, or even a Garm or Huan. So, how about Princess Mee from Tolkien's poem by that title found in The Tolkien Reader and The Adventures of Tom Bombadil? Also there are a few lines of the poem listed a few posts down the page of This Link. :happyelf:

Then again maybe she could be PJ's Lady Arwen who was quite energetic in his LOTR: Fellowship of the Ring.

I never knew Flicka was Swedish for girl! We took the name from the old children's book, My Friend, Flicka--about a horse.

How about Tookie, after the Took family? Small and always ready for an adventure.

And I'm sure the dog will act a bit "tokig" at times, don't you think Berca? ;)

Is a 'min pin' short for mini Doberman pincher? If so i have a friend who has one of those too, she's had it for almost a year now, but i can't remember if it's a boy or girl.

My other friend has a bunch of Jack Russels and one of them is named "Pippen" (not a typo, cuz it's not from LOTR but from the basket ball player Scottie Pippen.) However it is pronounce the same as Pippin and is still a good name for a small, rambunctious dog. If you need to feminize it up just twist it into Pippa or something, lol.

Or maybe "Tink" as in tinkerbell or something...
