How about Swamper? Seriously, A dogs name is a personal thing. We own a kennel and name all of our dogs after ducks and geese. Some of the more popular names these days seem to be gear suppliers, Avery, Mojo,Cabela,etc.

Well there's the KENNEL name and the CALL name.  I guess you'd like suggestions on a short call name.  Years ago, many owners avoided people's names, because that can become awkward :ermm:  My nephew is named Hunter, so probably not a good name for a dog of mine, except if I didn't like my nephew:crazy: (or his parents...:laugh:)  "BAD DOG HUNTER" would go over really well...  Using hunting related terminology can become problematical ;)  You may not want to name a dog Deke if you plan on him helping picking up, well, decoys:Wow:  I agree with the concept though and had come up with a really good name, which I am not at liberty to divulge:P  OK, OK the short call name would be 'BOOM', for my next dog:sick:  You can stop twisting my arm now:exclamationmark:  I have had a dog named "Bang", one named "Brave" and another "Magnum":D  I know someone that named a dog 'Hoover' because she was a vacuum cleaner on grouse scent in the woods.  Not exactly hunting, but closely related thereto (sort of).  Try to avoid names that sound like dog verbal commands:arrow:  I erred when I named a dog "Bacchus" 'BACKUS' so ended up calling him 'Bock Us', except he always had problems with the BACK command:w00t:  Because dogs have a hard time in distinguishing certain human sounds anyway, like 'B' from 'P', 'N' from 'M' and 'S's as I recall:doze::doze:  Oh, in parting, the pups mostly named themselves over time as their interests, personalities and proclivities develop:hehe:  So I'll likely never get a chance to name a dog 'BOOM' after all....so what did you name 'em?
