Keep in mind that a good name for a dog-boy is easy to pronounce, distinctive, sounds clearly, loudly and not too long.

The consonants here are solid, courageous, and vowels [a], [e], [o] underline the strength of the name. Thinking how to name the puppy, say the names out loud, appreciating their "sound value".
