Like Eowyn, our last much-loved golden retriever, the name Goldberry is from Tolkien -- Tom Bombadil's fair lady Goldberry, River-woman's daughter.  Berry is also Berry Clearcreek from the Sharing Knife, who is a counterpoint to Tolkien's Goldberry, as Sharing Knife is to Lord of the Rings.  And as River-woman's daughter, Berry is also connected to the Rivers who are genii loci in Aaronovitch's Rivers of London books.
