Hey All-

My wife finally broke down and bought me the dog I have always wanted, a female yellow English Lab. The family wants to name her Lucy but I was looking for a nautical name.

I need your help! Any ideas on nautical female names?

Thanks alot!

A friend of mine had his dog named Vela. Vela is the spanish word for sail. I do both sailboat racing and fishing, so I like it.
Other names: Marina or
Fisga: translates in spanish to a harpoon with 3 hooks for catching large fish.

Congrats on your lab. Mine is 10 and just last weekend I did the 5k turkey run in D.C. with him and he still ran like a pup. I definitely held him back. He is just too active to take on my boat though. I worry about him jumping overboard and getting snagged on a trolling lure. But, you may be better if you start him young.

I'll try to think of one for you. Mine is a black/rescue named Sally = immature female crab.
Jim (Jimmy = mature male crab)

Once you have a lab, you will never want any other type of dog.

Marina (I second that name)








Zabra (small Spanish sailing vessel)

(some are more feminine than others but female dogs can have nuetral names. My last female lab was named Spencer after Spencer Creek off the Miles)

Hey MJ,

Congrats on the new pup, a great bread and great for families. In addition to nautical names, you may want to consider Chesapeake themed names. Our female lab is Tilghman, we call her Tillie. Tolly was also on the list as we live right off that point.
Be sure to post a pic!
