Hmmm... I like Fortune a lot! (Or Fortuna?)
I always end up naming my animals after movie characters (or muppet characters) that I like, maybe who have a similar personality.
For example this is a not-well-known fact... I named Nigel after the character Nigel Tufnel in the movie "This is Spinal Tap" because frankly, he is a rather goofy unintelligent character... like my sweet Nigel. Cheesy

So if I had a beautiful new white female... I would name her "Amalthea" from the movie The Last Unicorn, a magical and beautiful white creature.

That's just always the way my animals get named!!! Grin

Is the dog pictured the one you're looking to name? Noel is a pretty name.  To me it is definately associated with overcoming hardship.  The spokesdog for the rescue group that I work for is named Noel becaus she was found around christmastime amlost beated to death and her ears cut off.  She is a wonderful dog with a sad story.  I can share more later and post some pics if you like...

names I like...

Liberty - associated with freedom...your new baby (I've failed fostering too) is starting a new life with you...a new freedom..and if your patriotic...th er you're set

Lenci - a Kuvasz is hungarian right? - This is a Hungarian name meaning Light

Asa - the morning - a new day..a new life for a new dog

Bela - mean the white one..another Hungarian name

Just a few suggestins from me...good luck...

I like Almathea, too! Would it be too hard to say all the time? Maybe Alma for short?

I still like Astrid quite a bit, and Noelle is just too pretty.

That is a cute name! I used to listen to Delilah on the radio all the time. She has such a great voice and it sounds femine. Sampson and Delilah is really cute together! I saw go for it!
