    Names for large breed dog?

    Hi,

    I've been lurking on the boards for a while and finally found the nerve to post something
    What are some great Russian names for a large breed dog? My friend suggested Grom or Velikan.

    Any other ideas?

    Thank you,
    Danielle

    Мухтар, Барбос, Полкан.

    Барбос might look like this:

    Thank you so much! I like Барбос a lot. I supposed that would be translated as Barbos?

    Yes, Barbos. Your assumption is accurate and true. Your might possibly reduce pet's name to Barbie. In that case none would say that he is Russian sleeping agent, like Bernie Sanders might be. I mean that anyone who has any connection to Russia might be a spy or something.

    Puzzling: something is going on between Russians and Bernie. Scared? Why? As a President he will be their best friend.
