Introduction

The Alaskan Malamute is a large and beautiful dog breed that is part of the Spitz family; which includes the Chow Chow, Akita, Siberian Husky, and much more. Originally bred by the Inuit people, the Alaskan Malamute is a native breed of Alaska as their name suggests. The dogs were designed as helpers for the Inuits and performed jobs such as keeping the people warm, pulling their sleds, and helping hunters seek out animals for food. There is no doubt that based on their history and genes, the Alaskan Malamute is known as one of the most ancient breeds in existence. Because of their close relationship with the Inuit people- where everyone's survival depended on a firm foundation of trust, Malamutes have always been the people's dog and love being around humans. Although the Malamute can be independent and a bit stubborn at times, the breed is truly amazing and a perfect fit for those who want a genuinely sweet companion for life.

Alaskan Malamute Dog Name Considerations

When choosing a name for an Alaskan Malamute, the most obvious choice would be to search for one that exists within the Inuit language. From the religion to just the everyday language, there is a multitude of interesting and unique names that are just waiting to find their way into a Malamute's title. If you do not like the way that some of the Inuit names are pronounced, there are a lot of great ways to shorten the names to have easier (and just as lovely) pronunciations. 

A few examples of female names for an Alaskan Malamute may be Umiaktorvik (or Umia), Nuvua, or the the most well-known Inuit goddess Sedna; all of which are lively, unique, and gorgeous. For males, there are equally awesome titles to choose from, such as Sila who is the Inuit god of weather, Anju, or Toklo. These monikers have a strong, yet playful, resonance to them and may be an excellent fit for Malamutes of all personalities types. Due to the fact that Alaskan Malamutes are quite large and striking dogs ( reaching up to 100 lbs full grown) there is no doubt that any name chosen for one should be just as unique and wonderful as the breed themselves are.
