Here’s how it goes (maybe this is only funny in MY head…).  This name has two possible conversations when meeting people:

Dog growling and snarling.

Stranger: Wow your dog isn’t too friendly, is he.

Owner: No, my dog is Friendly.

Dog growls and lunges.

Stranger: Ummm… no, your dog is definitely not friendly.

Owner: I’m telling you, the dog IS Friendly.

Stranger: That isn’t any definition of friendly I’d ever use.

Owner: But he IS Friendly.


Dog wags tail and grins at people.

Stranger: Wow! What a friendly dog.

Owner: Yup. Friendly.

Dog wriggles from shoulders down because of that tail-wag.

Stranger: I don’t think I’ve seen such a sweetie.

Owner: No, he’s Friendly.

Stranger: Well yeah, I said that…


I’m telling you – perfect dog name.  As the owner you could have some damn fun conversations.

Writer, nerd, and perpetual student. I am obsessed with books - both the reading and the making of them. If I won the lottery I would try to have the best private(ish) library in the world. It wouldn't be totally private because the whole purpose of having books is helping other people find a book they will love. I have 2 cats, Genkii (energy) and Kawaii (cutie). I will mention them regularly because they are a daily delight in my life. Granted, sometimes when I'm playing video games they are not so much "delight" as they are "distraction"... but I love them regardless.
