Name that Pup!

Not letting any cat out of the bag (whippets love chasing cats by the way) but what do you think the puppy in the pic would most suit? Bear in mind that fully grown she will be extremely skinny (see previous post pic.), far removed from the plump little ball of fur she is at the moment. Here are the top five...

MOLLY. This is my wife's preference.

WILMA. Childhood crush from Buck Rogers... see here. Wife's not too fond of this one (I can't imagine why). Wilma's also the name of one very neurotic cat I once had.

DAISY. Another childhood crush from the classic Dukes of Hazzard.

MURIEL. Kinda old-fashioned and retro, but not too sure if it would suit a dog.

LOLA. Lola's the name of the puppy's mother. Hmmm, this is actually growing on me... ('Lola the 2nd').

Would love to see your comments.

I'm hearing you Rhys... It's just that as a family man, I'm trying to pick a name that everyone loves (including Shemayah, who absolutely adores girly names and puppys).
