Introduction

Alexandria is the second-largest city in the wonderful and ancient country of Egypt. It was founded around a small town back in 332 BC by none other than Alexander the Great, one of the greatest conquistadors, the king of Macedonia, and the leader of the Greek League of Corinth. Alexander transformed once a small town into a buzzing city, the center of Hellenistic civilization in this part of the world. Alexandria also became a Ptolemaic Egypt capital, as well as the capital of Roman and Byzantine Egypt, and remained that until the Muslim conquest of AD 641.

Alexandria Dog Name Considerations

Picking a perfect name for your new doggo can be hard, but luckily, there are so many places from where you can draw your inspiration, and one of them is the city of Alexandria. Egyptian culture, in general, is quite fascinating, so when we take that into account, you can end up with more names than you can handle. However, there are a few places you can start, such as the names of ancient Egyptian gods! First off, since we are talking about gods, you can take the name of the god of embalming, Anubis, as he was often depicted as a black dog or a man with a canine head. Next, you can pick the name of the primordial god Nun, or Naunet in its feminine form. Amun or Amun Ra is a perfect name for a dog that is your ray of sunshine, mostly because Amun was the god of Sun and Wind.

If you like cows and you want to honor them in some way, even through the name of your pup, you can name them Hathor, after the goddess of joy, love, and motherhood, often depicted as a cow. Of course, since we all know that dogs are the most honorable creatures in the world, you can name your little furry goddess Maat, after the goddess of truth, justice, and cosmic order.
