Name change for Kahuna

😞 Rats. Right when I decided that I do like Kahuna - it was growing on me – dh decides that he doesn't like it. So, we are doing a name change.

I dont like the new name at all, but the kids and I figure that since he lost the war {that is, wound up bringing home another dog}, we should let him win at least one battle. So, the puppy's new name is Keoki.

Like I said, I don't like it. But, I did name all six of our children, and the five other dogs we've owned in our 21 yrs of marriage, I suppose I should let him name something, LOL.

So, good bye Kahuna; Hello Keoki.

Keoki? Like Kay o key? I like it.

Keoki is a nice name and original. How did your DH find it? Does it have an African meaning?

Hello Keoke!

It is Hawaiian. My brother had a friend named Keoki growing up. He prononunced it Key - Oh - Key.

Yes, Key-oh-key, and yes Hawaiian.

My dh has a friend from Hawaii who suggested it. I guess it's equivelent to "George" in English. "George????" I asked, but dh says that is irrelevent as the dog doesn't know it means "George", and he likes the way it sounds.

I think it's cute!

I like it! Welcome to Jazzy's world, Keoki!!

There is an owner here who has two dogs, Kona and Keoki - Keoki was rescued from someone else who couldn't keep him. It's a really nice name, I think….

I like it its different.

If you are anything like me your dogs have lots of names anyway, Rufus answers to Bear at the moment which came about from the song Rupert the Bear which I used to sing to him! Fiji is sometimes called Flea or Felicity (Her show name is Zande Feleji), Kia answers to Kissy shortened from Kissy Keeks and so it goes on!

My DH says it doesn't matter what you call them, they don't come anyway!

I do like Keoki, it has a nice sound.

I like the name Keoki too.
Moetmum you are the first person i have heard say their Dogs have a few names, i thought it was just us.
Benji used to have quite a few alias, we called him Anubis, Boo Boo and Ninki to name just a few. He did seem to respond to them all , well as much as a Basenji responds anyway.
We felt his favourite was Ninki as sometimes he would do things a bit better when called that,lol.

I have to admit to giving mine a few names too…

Gracie is grassy arse ( She got all excited when someone said gracias or however you spell it so she ends up being called grassy arse now πŸ˜ƒ ) or Gravy (again, got all excited when someone mentioned Gravy :o ).

Delilah is Lilah, Lils, Lily.

Riley is Crickey ( as in Crickey O'Riley πŸ˜ƒ ) or just Ry.

And poor Maya gets called MyMy at home :o

Chloe our old lab is Chlodagh or Da Pig πŸ˜ƒ Thanks to my brother for the second one lol!

Beau is The Bobo!

And Cassia gets called Cassandra when she has been bad!

Its terribly confusing at times :rolleyes:
