Well, here’s where we are so far:
Duke: It may be louder than other names when yelled, but can’t compare to a two fingered whistle, which is my preferred call in signal.

Scrap-
Luke is good, if I wanted to avoid Duke.

Jefe rates honorable mention as a contender.

Cane is interesting as it also means “to cock” (as in a gun) but it’s properly pronounced Connay

But, so far, the only name that might knock Gringo out of the box is Terra Fuego or some variant of that. Ground Fire. Real interesting.

Keep ‘em coming.
Thanks much-
Rich

You will be hunting pigs right?

Cerdo - Spanish for pig

Chancho - Spanish (mexican) for pig. You can say it in you best Nacho Libre voice.

Perro - spanish for dog

Nariz - spanish for nose

Cola - spanish for tail

Siga - spanish for follow(to follow)

Great looking dog -

My guess is that you probably haven't considered OTIS - there aren't many of us around by that name.

Charley wanted me to put in a pitch for his name -

I think you already have it.

First: I hope you stick with "Gringo." "Pistolero" is a bit long for a dog's name. I deduce it would inevitably be shortened to "Pisser," or something equally unflattering.

I hope your inspiration, listening on your iPod, was either the Allen Wayne Damron OR Tim Henderson version of "The Gringo Pistolero." I have ALWAYS been a big fan of the song, and the story behind it. I heard the back story directly from composer Tim Henderson, which makes it all the more valuable to me.

Tim based the song/story line loosely on Army Captain Leonard Matlack's rescue of the two Army aviators from Mexifcan insurgentes in 1920. Hey, the excellent song is about as authentic as the story line in "The Wind and the Lion" movie - - Mrs. Edith Pedicaris was in reality a male diplomat . . . .

Anyhow, if for some reason you decide that "Gringo" is not exactly right, I submit that "Leonard" would make a good nombre del perro.

The border bandit troubles are referenced in the review of the book, Bosque Bonito here. The entire Captain Matlack/Chico Cano interaction is detailed in Elton Miles' excellent book, More Tales of the Big Bend, Texas A&M Univ Press, 1988.

I hope to meet Gringo, Leonard, whatever, in the future.

Best

I figured he was listening to Robert Earl Keen's "Gringo Honeymoon"

Not nearly the story as "The Gringo Pistolero" but a gringo song by a gin-u-wine texas song writer.

Shame on you, Johnny. He's a papered dog. Of course he has to have some long name, including the Breeder's Creds as prefix. Fr'instance: Guest Ranch's Hemmingway Boddington the Third.
.
.
.
But you'd still call him Hemi.


Trip-
Tango is pretty good: Double Ott's Tango Down.
Deserves review once we get more on the table.

That last one made think of a variation of it: Double Ott's Lo Tengo Abajo (I have it down). Or Tengo for short. I'm assuming your all male dog doesn't want to dance (tango), but does want to "go get it" and take it down.

Double Ott's Lo Tengo Abajo- I like it, Mal.

Query:
Is there a reason everyone is going Spanish, other than my proposed name, Gringo Pistolero?

These pups have Spanish Bull Mastiff in them, yes. But they're predominantly Indian Dogs and named for the tribe: Choctaw. Our last one was BLT's Miko Wattah. Choctaw for "Chief Hunter". Known as Mookie. They're pure (Native) American.

Thanks for all the suggestions, people. We're not settled yet. He's still being called "Pup" and "Baby Boy".

[Best Pacino Voice On] Name him right and he'll make you all proud. I promise. [Best Pacino Voice Off]

Johnny-
Leoanard? And I propose we change your name to Hortense!

You mentioned the name in your first post Rich. The name should be Tracker, if the dog is truly a utilitarian dog. Plus it's also part of my namesake.

Rich ~

I'm still plumping for Gringo, but wouldn't mind a free magazine subscription either. Sooooo... I offer the following.

Double Ott's Choctaw Spirit. Call him "Chock" or "Jock" for everyday.

My previous Mastiff's registered name was Hipshot (actually - Avalons Hipshot O'King).

He was CharleyIII. The one above is CharleyIV (Farpoint Charley O'King)

I had a Rhodesian Ridgeback named Leo (Lion Hound) before I went to Mastiffs some 20 years ago.

I guess Otis is out - in fact, that's why I'm called "OJ" by most people that I call friends.

Loads of good ideas. Nice thread!

Good lookin pup.
Since the first two struck out and he is the third try, you should throw in a
"Tres"

Such as Tres Banditos or Tres Gringos

I even like Caliente. I know they are spanish but you dont live in New York.

You bypassed George's Rooster from the John Wayne movie, but his full name was " Rooster Cogburn".

He had attitude!
