In the early 1400s, Edward, Duke of York wrote a hunting and game guide that included a list of over a thousand "names for all manner of hounds."

Some good ones:

Cachefaste
Honeydewe
Symfonye
Garlik
Christabell
Terry
Havegoodday
Lewde
Rage
Crabbe
Beste-of-all
Pretyman
Pretiboy
Joliboye
Mercurye
Oribull
Brente
