  1. I swear I always have thousand name ideas until I actually need to pick one! My particular Yorkie is unlike any other and I wanted to give her a really unique name to match. I also like the idea of a name with a history, so I appreciate your information about the names with historical background! I think Reese would be a lovely name, thank you for the tips!

  2. In my opinion, You should add the name “Bear” to the list. Especially if she/he was a small dog. Imagine how adorable that would be!
