It's got sass, class, and a dash of mischief, just like the infamous Delilah who gave Samson a disastrous haircut. Plus, it's a nod to the catchy tune by Tom Jones, ensuring your dog's name will be belted out in song, not just called. And let's not forget the radio show, "Delilah After Dark," making it perfect for those night-owl pups. So, if you want a name with a blend of history, pop culture, and a sprinkle of naughtiness, Delilah is a paw-some choice!
