Hat tip - and apologies - to Gem of the Ocean for the title of this post.

After much cajoling, whining, pleading, and finally smacking upside the head, the Digihusband relented and agreed I could have as my Christmas present a new puppy. And after a search, I found just the one - a female tri-colored Pembroke Welsh Corgi, pictured above (she's the one in the middle).
Now comes the decision - what to name her? I have always joked that as an attorney I should name a female dog "Sue." But I was thinking more of a Celtic name - as corgyn (yes, that is the proper Welsh plural form) are wee Celtic dogs. But then, she was also born on November 2nd, which this year was All Souls Day or Dia de los Muertos - maybe "Ana?"
I need suggestions - what would you name a corgi?
And no, "Elizabeth" is not in the running, despite the affinity that English monarch has for these dogs.
BTW, the puppy is coming from Poso Creek Puppies in central California. Please visit their webiste to learn more about this breed.
