Chantilly sounds like a good name for a dog. I can't see naming a dog Centerville or Middleburg, however.

ps. Annandale is actually starting to grow on me. Especially if you had two dogs, Ann and Dale.

Huntington for a male pet--I like that one. And Shirlington would be his girlfriend.

Which got me to wondering.... what other Virginia places would make great names for a pet?

I used to have a cat named "Hamilton" (because that's where he was found) but I always thought I should have named him after "Backlick Road" since that's what he was always doing...
Normie, I love your ideas for threads! I love the name Hamilton!

Love it! I don't think I can do much with Lovesttsville, Hillsboro, and Waterford, the towns closest to my house.

Friends of mine have cats named Sam and Dave, after an old rock and roll group. I said when our elderly dogs pass on (sniff, sniff) I want to get two dogs and name them Willie and Waylon.

Waterford could be a good name for a spaniel, or a retriever. Or you could name a dog Berlin after the Berlin Turnpike in Lovettsville. Or Snickers after the Snickersville Turnpike.

Purcellville could be the name of a cat. But everyone would think it was named Percival.

LOL, you know if you say Route Seven enough times, it starts to sound ok as a dog name.

"Here Route Seven!" "Don't chew up the newspaper, Route Seven!" "You're a good boy, Route Seven!" "You kids stop making Route Seven bark so much!"

It may even start sounding like "Woof Seven".

Abingdon ("Abbie)
Cameron
Braddock
Wolfe
Henry
Montgomery ("Monty")
Pendleton ("Pendie")
Oronoco?

Sorry- this is kind of off topic.. but we named our dog Boulea (Boo-Lay) because my husband said he would listen to one of the Sports station personalities on the radio and always referred the Washington Bullets "Le Bullet (Boo-lay)" I thought it was an unusual name for a dog but I liked it..

back on topic..

Vienna - for a female cat.. or a female dog.. make sure you don't have a male dog name Jake.. (I've never watched the show but had to throw that in there)

Stafford for a pit bull

Aldie for a Scottish terrier -- just sounds right

Prince William for a retriever

Anf if we can skip across the Potomac for a second, Muncaster (as in Muncaster Mill Road) for a dog with droopy ears and even droopier jowls. Somehow it fits perfectly.
