Thanks! I was looking for names that were like yellow so this one fit the bill. It's also a pretty flower. It's fun coming up with different dog names. If we ever get another dog, I'll have plenty to choose from.

Adrienne Farricelli on April 05, 2019:

Claudia, you are a volcano of ideas! You put so much creativity in your work. I had a client with a dog called Jonquil and never realized it was a gemstone color.

Claudia Mitchell (author) on February 02, 2019:

That's a great name for a horse, and very sparkly too! :-) Thanks for reading Ellison.

Ellison Hartley from Maryland, USA on February 01, 2019:

Such a fun and cool article! I love the layout as well. Really easy and fun to read. I don't currently have any dogs with gemstone names. I do have a boarded horse named Ruby though!

Claudia Mitchell (author) on January 31, 2019:

Thank you Liz. When I was doing research for this article I found some that I wasn't familiar with either.

Liz Westwood from UK on January 30, 2019:

This is a very thorough list. There are some gemstones that I have not come across before.
