Name contest!!

Our buddy, Reilly, over at Cowspotdog is having another one of his fabulous contests to win his momma's awesome card designs!

I have a slight feeling I've written a post about this before, but haven't the time to dig it up again!

As many of you know, I was born right at home in my garden after it had rained that evening. (The story as to why I was born in the garden in the first place can be read here if any of you are interested!!)

Well, my dad wanted to call me "Rain". They kept the name up for a few days until my sister Rosie and mommy decided that "Rain" sounded way too depressing! So Rosie cracked her brains until she decided on a name she liked a lot...and that is "Eva".

She got the name from an awesome Pixar animation, as many of you may know, called Wall-E!
Eve is in fact the white flying robot's name...but when Wall-E calls her, he says "Eeeee- Va" in his electronic voice and it sounds so cute!

I still have the name 'Rain', but it is in my kennel name as Caledonian Rainbow.  
(I think Rainbow is much better than Rain!)

I like the name "Eva". I look like an Eva, don't I?

Eva suits you beautifully! I have a blog friend named Wall E, too! I think Rainbow is rather pretty, though.

I think that is a great way to get a name.
