One thing I have noticed about Basenji owners is that we don't name our dogs "typical" dog names. I haven't seen a spot, butch, socks, or those other "typical" names. Our dog names usually have some meaning behind it. What is the meaning behind the name you gave your Basenji?
I have two basenjis, Sheba and Ramasey.
Sheba: I did not name her but she was named for Queen of Sheba
Ramsey: he was named after the pharaoh, Ramesses II. He held power the longest of all the Ramesses in Egypt. He was very destructive and started many wars and conflicts. When we got Ramsey I had already decided on his name, but the first week he proved the name to be unfitting for him. He was very shy, docile, and loving. So his AKC name is "Ramsey's Loving Side". Now, 5 months later, he has once again proven that to be unfitting… Lol. He is still very loving but also very destructive, starts wars and conflicts with Sheba and the cat and, of course, us... His pets.
