50 Male Dog Names And Their Meanings

What is the first thing you want to find about a person when you first meet him or her? Generally we refer to the name. No matter what kind of application you need to fill, first of all you have to write down your name. When you introduce yourself to someone, first of all you tell him your name. Between the first expressions one learns when starting to learn a foreign language is: “What’s your name?”
