Hi, nadarshiv:

Before making any suggestions about a name for your pet, may I ask what he/she looks like?  Coloring, breed, type, variety, behavior, etc.???

For example, my cat was a black male, his adoption day was in March,  so we named him Morgan Free-Kitty, after Morgan Freeman.
What Makes an Elder? :
A head of gray hairs doesn't mean one's an elder. Advanced in years, one's called an old fool.
But one in whom there is truth, restraint, rectitude, gentleness,self-control, he's called an elder, his impurities disgorged, enlightened.
-Dhammpada, 19, translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu.

 Thanks, nadarshiv.

Here is a link to a German Buddhist website with ties to Shri Lanka, which may give you some ideas:

He is German Shepherd and Is brown and Black in color. He is very naughty. Thanks for the names link my friend. These are nice names. One of my friend send me this link too. It has Buddhist names with meanings, origin, history and even numerology numbers too. Suggest me some names from here too. http://www.babynology.com/buddhist_babynames.html
