There are many paths one can go with choosing a puppy name. Some name their dog using conventional folks names, such as Suzie, Charlie, etc. This might cause some confusion though when speaking to acquaintances. For instance, if you, a good friend, and an acquaintance are speaking and you also mention your dog by its own name (say Alexander), the acquaintance may think you’re speaking about a person. This is among the many reasons why most people don’t choose a people name for their dog.
