Hubby and I have decided to get another boxer within the next few months. Now we are already having issues with names. We made a deal when we got Chloe, I could pick her name and when we got a male he could pick it. Problem is he is set on the name Ami (pronounced AH-me). It was his Uncle from Germany's name and he loves it and I would too if we lived in Germany! I tried telling him people would think our little guy is a girl because that's just another spelling of the name Amy.
Chloe is still always being mistaken for a male and it drives me nuts!  Any suggestions for a German boy's names???

I like the name "Kaiser", it means "king".  But whatever you decide, congrats on the decision to get a new puppy.  I would love to get another but my dad doesn't want any more dogs.  There is already 4 in my house, plus my 4 cats.

German is my specialty (German relatives, lived in Germany for five years, speak the language)...

Here's a few suggestions of German male names and their meanings that might go good with a Boxer... I'll throw in some extra "A" German names, since your husband seems to like the "A" sound.

Adalric/Adalrik - Noble friend
Adalwolf - Noble wolf
Adel - Noble
Adler - Eagle
Aksel - Father of peace
Amell - Power of an eagle
Armand   - Of the army
Dieter  - The people's ruler
Fremont  - Guardian of freedom
Helmuth - Helmet, protector
Lear  - Of the meadow
Odell - Little wealthy one
Roland  - From the famous land
Ulbrecht  - Form of Albert
Vilhelm  - Form of William
Warner - Defending army
Zelig  - The blessed one

I like old fashioned names.  My husband's family is German.  They have names I like.

Fritz, August, Ernst, Van, and Albert are some names in our family.  I think Fritz is my favorite.

Good luck! :D

Okay now I got too many names I like! lol...
Zelig, Amell, Odell,Fritz and a few I found last night.
Alvin- friend to all
Coen- Brave
Baron- young warrior
Bren- flame
Zeven- town in Germany (figure, maybe hubby would like it because it's where his uncle lived)
Now, help me narrow it down..lol  Glad I started this months before actually getting the puppy. Hubby is so hell bent on this name Ami tho, it's got me nervous but I'm stubborn I'll win this one!!

Oooh...I love the name Fritz! I would actually call him Fritzie!  I like Baron too. Adolf is a good name too, but it goes with the whole Hitler thing. What about Otto? I actually like that one too.  Chloe and Otto....Fritzie and Chloe....Baron and Chloe....hmmm.... :roll:

Mastray and I have eight Ferrets... one is named "Otto" and another is named "Fritz"... but I always call him "Fritzer" (Fritzie is too feminine... especially since the German use of "der", "die" and "das" for masculine, feminine and neutral).

My uncle actually had a German Shepherd named Fritz.  I think it's a really good name.  I like Baron also.
