    Oakley could sound like "Okay", a common release word. I wouldn't pick that one.
    Kelly Cassidy (person)

    HR Maple Cassidy CDX JH RE (golden retriever)
    Alder Cassidy CDX RE (standard poodle chipmunk chaser)
    plus whacked-out weird Burka (elderly mix-breed rescue girl)

    Very good point. I avoid using names that could be confused with commands.

    I've been lurking on the sight for a while, and thought this would be a good chance to post...

    My new pups name is Oakley (Fire in the Oaks). I wanted something unique, and now I see that name all the time

    I agree on waiting for at least a formal name, it should come to you. I kept referring to my pup as a ball of fire, and it clicked (also helped that he is almost a fox red)

    Good luck.
