Dog names

My parents are getting a Belgian Tervuren dog on Thursday. They are thinking of calling him Remus. I have logged enough hours in Harry Potter fandom to find the name full of odd connotations. There is also the matter of his mythological brother Romulus. I proposed some other name alternatives:
  • Farley, as in Farley Mowat
  • Felix, meaning happy or lucky
  • Sasha, more Russian but I like how our cat's name sounds with it: Vasya and Sasha
  • Alex, the Greek version, Alexandros, means 'defender or helper of men'
  • Tomi or Tomas
  • Nico
  • Remy or Raimi if my parents really like how 'Remus' sounds and don't mind the Army of Darkness reference. 
He's a seven month-old boy with a sweet and even temperament and a golden coat that will darken with maturity. His owner has been calling him Golden Boy for the time being. Like other dogs of his breed, he's very intelligent and calls to mind a somewhat fluffier, perkier German Shepherd.

If you've other names to suggest, I'd be open to them.
