What is in a name?
A name is special and is usually well thought about before giving it to someone or something.
Some names even have a meaning behind them or, perhaps, is an old family name.
Many of asked where we got the name for our Wheaten Scottie Dog, Fiona. Some asked if we got her name from the movie Shrek or the TV show Burn Notice. Both the movie and the show have characters named Fiona. (I like the tenacious Fiona character on Burn Notice!)
For both of our dogs, we chose their names from a Gaelic website. Of course, we had to choose a Scottish or Gaelic name because they ARE, after all, Scotties!
Fiona translates to white or fair haired. She is NOT looking so white after having attempted to help me in the muddy flower beds.
Mr. Duhgall can be a bit of a mysterious chap. Like some Scotties, a bit on the quiet and aloof side - but give him a Guinness and he will be your best friend!
