Lightbulb Name assistance requested!

So I'm at a loss at the moment. At a loss for a good name! You see, next month on the 15th I get to add a fur baby to my family! A black and white miniature parti poodle, a little boy! I am super excited about this and really can't wait to be able to take him home.

But I'm having issues with deciding on a name. Westley (the character from The Princess Bride!) was in the running for awhile. A favorite book character, Two-Bit, was also considered.

But just tonight the person I'm getting the puppy from sent me new photos of my new baby and those names don't seem to click with him.

So now I turn to my friends here on bettafish.com for some creative name help. Just please....no suggestions of Oreo! Lol

Or Megatron, as my boyfriend seems to think he should be called. -_-

Here is one of the photos just sent to me!

No, not really looking for any theme...just a good name that seems to fit that little boy!

It's ok to have LOL'd...I did too, until I smacked him on the arm and said 'NO!' when I realized he was serious. Lol

He's sooooooooooo cute!! I'd go with Toto or Spike :)

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Hmmm, I guess I'll just start throwing out names then that might fit: Popcorn, Sunny, Blaze, Crackle, Frost, Thor (lol), Toro, Daken, Spyke, Padfoot, Karima, Sunder, Gambit, Hyperion, Feron....any yeah that's all I can come up with odd names. Not sure if you want a simple name or not :) I can add more later.

Poor Russell was "Little Man" or (only from my husband) "Shihtee" for three months! Then one day "Russell" just hit me. I've decided what fits as a puppy doesn't always fit an adult. So, take your time. Although he does look like he'll be a "Franklin" when he's grown.

I love and have had many poodles. Never had a parti but always wanted one. The minis are so easy to train and so quick! You'll have tons and tons of fun; especially if you decide to try Agility. Ever need any help, PM me; I'm a retired dog trainer who specialized in puppies.

If this is how bad I am about naming a dog...I am so glad I don't ever plan on having kids. Naming a child would be a nightmare. This is a nightmare. Lol!

Thanks for the suggestions, all! Goving me things I've not considered, which is what I'm looking for. Getting tired of poring through name books and whatnot ( I miiiiiiight be abut nuts. Did I forget to mention? )

@MattsBettas: Gah! Noooo! I already know/ have known about a dozen black and white dogs named Oreo. Lol It kills me to know that with his markings it fits perfect, too. Lol
@Russel: I might take you up on pumping you for help when the time comes. :) Agility is actually something I've been considering. Haven't really looked not it yet but I may start. Thank you!
