Hi! My rescue chihuahua was named Joey by his foster home. There are too many bad names and advertisements; for instance "I am no ordinary Joe." So I was searching for a name (could not find any mexican names I liked). I came us with Hendrik but wanted something a little simpler (did not like the k at the end of this name. You "pupnames" said that Henry is taken from Hendrix........and I liked the meaning which fits him perfectly. Thanks
