I racked my brain trying to figure out a name.....then when listening to the song "Waltzing Matilda" by the Irish Rovers....the explanation of what Waltzing Matilda meant just "felt good.....and that it will be. Actually Waltzing Matilda is not far from the present name "Rover" (except the precious owner named her Rover because he was never able to get a dog)
