Something you might want to consider, is basing a name for your dog on character traits; such as Happy, Buddy, Lady, Tiger, and so on.
Fictional Characters (from TV, books, movies)
Authors and producers come up with some great canine names. Here is a sampling:
Argos; Homer’s Odyssey
Buck; Jack London’s Call of The Wild
Carl, Rottweiler; Alexandra Day’s Good Dog Carl
Jip; Charles Dickens’ David Copperfield
Toto Terrier; Wizzard of Oz
Rex the Wonder Dog; DC Comics
Beethoven, St Bernard; Beethoven
Otis; The Adventures of Milo & Otis
Bouncer, Labrador Retriever; Neighbors, TV show
Flash, Bassett Hound; The Dukes of Hazzard, TV show
Ivarna, Pomeranian; The Suite Life of Zack & Cody
Napoleon, Tolkien, Elvis, and Winston are just a few dogs named after famous people. These can be good conversation-starters, for example: “…Yes he’s the 7th cousin twice removed of Napoleon’s favorite dog” (only if true of course!).
Great names for your female pet can be found in flowers, plants, vines and the like. Here are some elegant examples, which also fit the criteria for being short and easy-to-pronounce: Aster; Dahlia; Fern; Holly; Jasmine; Lala; Liana; Lily; Olive; Rose; Ivy
Many times dogs are named for their owner’s hobbies or passions. Some reflect this with names of well-known brands such as “Harley, “and “Budweiser”.
So, here’s to you and a long and happy friendship with your dog named______________!
