Hi Liz, thanks for sharing the interesting information about the rise in demand for puppies. I read some headlines like that. Dogs do keep people healthy and active (mentally and physically well). I love them! Your name ideas are cute.

Liz Westwood from UK on January 10, 2021:

During the first lockdown in the UK last year, there was a rise in demand for puppies. Daily exercise becomes more meaningful when there's a dog to walk in a household and dogs were a distraction from the pandemic. This is a great list of names. Others I have come across are Bear, Nimbus, Finn, Peggy and Olly.
