Introduction

The Airedale Terrier originates from a place called West Riding, in England, that is close to the River Aire. They were originally bred for hunting small animals in the early 1800s. This sturdy breed is ranked as the 55th most popular breed in America by the American Kennel Club. His little beard on the end of his triangular jaw makes his appearance similar to that of a Black and Tan Terrier, also originating from England, and this breed was often referred to as a little old man due to their bearded appearance. They are very eager to please, so now you’ve chosen to get an Airedale, what will you call him or her? Read on for some Airedale inspiration!

Airedale Terrier Name Considerations

Naming a brave, proud and loyal companion like the Airedale Terrier isn’t an easy task. When naming your Airedale, there are certainly considerations you can make, that might make your choosing a little easier. 

Your Airedale is quite energetic and requires brisk walks as well as mental stimulation, so you could choose a name based on this; a name like Dash would be suitable.  If you consider the temperament of an Airedale Terrier, you could select a name like Lear for the proud pooch, or if you have a dog with a strong personality, then you could pick a name like Avery. A brave canine might suit the name Camelot, if he is as courageous as a knight. 

Color can be another inspiration, for example, a name like Shadow, Rusty, or Sandy would be just the fit for an Airedale.  Some sources suggest that the dog belonging to Annie in the original Annie movie, is in fact an Airedale Terrier named Sandy. You could also consider the appearance of Airedale.  For example, you could consider their coat, which is often thick and wiry, so a name like Shaggy, or Raggy or Scruffy could be another choice. Check out the list below and see if we can inspire you with a special name for your Airedale!
