As promised, here is the big surprise!!!!

So where did we get the name Cida? We went the Welsh route. Ci (key) and gi(gea) mean "dog" in Welsh and da(dah) is supposed to mean "good". So basically we named our new fella "good dog". Not terribly creative, but corgi means "dwarf dog" in Welsh so we didn't have much of a bar to trip over. LOL!

I'm a big one for thinking about meaning first and sound second. Not gonna name my dog "fast runner" or "fierce protector" cause I don't want to be chasing after it, or keeping it from biting everyone who comes near me. Told you I was the traditionally superstitious one! We ran through the idea of naming Cida, "little brother", "second", "smart dog", or "black and white". None of them seemed pronounceable or they were too boring to say. We even toyed with something patriotic since we met him on Flag Day and knew we would bring him home on The Fourth of July. No dice though because the words were too hard to say, too unwieldy, or just meh. Cida (which btw my spellcheck HATES and keeps trying to make Vida or Coda) was one we kept coming back to and we said it enough that it stuck. :)
DH has never owned a puppy and I haven't had one in 30 years! This is going to be an adventure for sure. Stay tuned as the adventure continues...
