My other dog was already named when I got her, this my first pup. So I'm excited.

She goes to visit the vet Monday. She is a free walmart pup.

She has Scottish Terrier but I can't tell what else.

I like Regan and Sian (pronounced Sh-awn) but not sure if they are good dog names. I'd probably be silly and call her something like "lassie" so I'm no help!

I think Bonnie is lovely. Fiona- shortened to Fi would also sounds nice. Ferguson is popular with men-- but you could use Fergie for a girl.


It's not the passage of time that heals. It's what you do with that time.

Sian (pronounced Sh-awn)


That is Welsh and not Scottish and it's pronounced Shaaaan ( long a as in (a)pple)

I would go for Fi ( Fiona) too, prounced feeeeeee as in (e)ating and not I as in eye.
Bonnie is another as already posted.

Isla is good, but to be really true to form should be spelled 'Islay' for the island off the Hebrides.
Skye
Aisla (ale-sa) (for ailsa Craig)
Iona (eye-own-ah)
cara (little island near Islay)
Danna (little island near Aisla-Craig)


Moving away from island names.

Fancy a dog called cat?! Catriona (pronounced 'cat-reen-a) bit of a mouthful!
Mora (more-a... Variant of Irish Maura (mor- a) - short o like 'for')
Quinnie (k-wine-ee) Doric (Aberdoninan dialect - like the guy most folks didn't understand in brave!) for 'lassie'
there's always Ceilidh (Kay-lay) like the dance.
Maree (as in the Loch)
Katrin (also a Loch)
Ellon (place in Aberdeen)
Gretna (place in Galloway where people fled to marry because age of consent for marriage in Scotland was lower than England and Wales)
Lenzie (town in central belt. Very pretty town)
Lexie - common, not sure how Scottish it really is - usually short for Alexandra
Roslin? Big name for a wee dog! (As in Roslin Chapel in Da Vinci code. It's a parish near Edinburgh)
Kippen? (More male to me)


Molly isn't really Scottish - it's a UK wide shortened form of Margaret.It is cute though!

congrats on the new puppy!

Flora
Heather
Morag (stress is on first syllable)
Eilidh
Callie - short for Caledonian
Ina
Innes
Weegie...

Lioness-rampant, (can't quote on my phone) I chuckled when I saw you suggesting Ellon. Our Labradoodle is called Turriff. My DH is from Buckie, but we reckoned that calling the dog that, when we live in the Central Belt, was asking for trouble!

I was thinking of Isla St Clair and the Generation Game rather than the island!!- always thought it was a lovely name

We too were looking for a Scottish name for our dog. My parents immigrated from Scotland so we thought we'd go with a Scottish theme for our Golden. My Dad came up with Morag and lots of other good really Scottish names but we settled on Piper - short for bagpiper. Because both my Dad and my brother play the bagpipes. So not really Scottish but it plays into the theme!

Well I stay near Kirriemuir ... what about the short form of that Kirrie? you aren't likely to find any nearby dogs with the same name.

Or another island name is Rona

Don't know if they are really Scottish, but they feel like it to me:

McDuff
Duff
Duffy
McDunnough
Dunny
McDougle
Doogle
Doogie
McFarland
Farley
Ainsley
Dinny

A lot of these seem a bit masculine to me, looking over the list, though.

I don't mind naming dogs after landmarks, either. So there's Glasgow, Stirling (Edinburgh seems like a mouthful), Aberdeen (Abby for short) Perth.

The department store akin to Harrods is called Jenners, which could be a female dog name. Nessie is the nickname for the Loch Ness monster.

If you get into clan names, we could go on all day.

I don't know any Scottish names, but love Molly or Holly for a dog. Also Gabby or Abby. I love using "people" names for dogs! That seems to be a trend in our area.

My great-grandfather on my dad's side is known as the father of the Scottish Terrier in the U.S. because he introduced the breed to the U.S. and use to raise/breed them. I feel like I should have one myself. LOL

My maternal grandmother had a Scottish Terrier many years ago. His (I assume) name was Scottie McGregor. I love that name but it definitely sounds like a male name. I would probably come up with something similar but with a female name.

Some of the more feminine-sounding clan names:

Ainslie
Baillie
Blair
Carnegie
Eliott
Hepburn
Hope
Hunter
Kelly
Kennedy
Leslie
Lindsay
Mackenzie
Moffat
Monypenny
Paisley
Pennycook
Primrose
Rose
Roxburgh (Roxie?)

I behold you riding with my love throughout the town,
And I bite my thumb at you.
Methinks the ducats in my purse are sorely lacking,
And I bite my thumb at you
And at her, too.
Were I but richer, I would be her suitor
Is this not a patent fact?
Though it pains me to the quick, I will salute her still
The aforementioned way: I bite my thumb.

It is, but it means 'laddie'. the Ghillie is the gamekeeper's boy to do the running around. Also Gaelic for boy. Dad had a Ghillie dhub beag (I think spelling is right, I only have a few words of Gaelic! Pronounced Gilly doo beg) - little dark laddie - he was a dark short haired cairn terrier I believe.

Any luck OP?

There's always whisky - we had a dog called whisky (she was a yellow lab, but dark coloured)
or you could go for a brand of whisky (not a whisky drinker so can't help there!)

Or one of the castle names- all kind of a mouthful for a wee dog though
Glamis? (Pronounced Glams - like clams)

I've probably give you really obscure things people won't immediately recognise as Scottish.
