Your definition of cool really depends on your interests and personality. Naming your pet is the first step toward bonding. Don’t pick a name because someone else thinks it’s cool. Pick a name that suits your dog’s personality, as well as yours.
Your dog is your best friend and you will call him an average of 25,000 times during his life. Imagine giving your dog the wrong name!
Another fact is that many dog owners would like to change their dog’s name after a few months already. Why stress the dog with a new name when you can do it from scratch?
Below are some great dog name suggestions. But before we start here are some more tips. Don’t use dog names that sound similar to very common words and commands like “go, stay, sit, eat, come, run,” etc. The biggest mistake down owners make is to give the dog a cure name that fits well as long as the dog is young and still a small puppy, but sounds stupid to an adult dog.
Another not-so-great idea is to name the dog after people you know. They may not be very happy with it. Here are some suggestions on how you can find a good dog name:
If you like sports:
Name your dog after your favorite team or the city he plays in.
“Dolphin” is only great if your dog likes to swim. “Miami” is a great name.
Name them after your favorite sports personality. Your last name or nickname is usually a better option. This, of course, depends on its name.
The sport itself: difficult to translate into a cool name. Here are a couple:
If you like mythology:
Hercules – for the tough dog
Persephone – great for a dog mom
Athena – for the tough bitch
Zeus – the “king”
Apollo – especially good for fair-haired dogs
