My gsp ended up with the name Frankenstein or frank for short. Found him on the floor one morning, when I went to wash the carpet lint off him before giving him a proper burial he started swimming around in the sink. "ITS ALIVE!"

It would be awesome if someone could collect all these names and make it so people can vote for the best names.

Or if they could be in an article in the library for inspiration.

Alas, I am too lazy... :P
