I don't know how good this is, but the other day I got a kick outta this guy's dog's name. He said his name is (phonetically): "Dee-Oh-Jee", with emphasis on the "Oh". Which is just D.O.G. spelled out. If I ever get another German-origin dog (GSD, rottweiler, GSP, GWP, dobermann, etc.), it's gonna be named Shultz or Colonel Klink.
Maybe some history on the breed will give you an idea:
