Introduction

You can have alternative music, and you can have country music. But what if you want both? You can; it’s called alternative country. Alternative country music is either country or country rock, which has an eclectic mix of subcultures in the combination. It can loosely feature rock, country, pop, or alternative rock too. The culture originated in the late 20th century and includes such well-known songs as Windfall by Son Volt, and Barrier Reef by Old 97’s.

Before you get too lost in the music, why not show others how passionate you are? Consider naming your new adopted pet with alternative country dog names. The variety available will surprise you. Below are a few options to start you off on the right track.

Alternative Country Dog Name Considerations

Before you end up with alternative country dog names you regret, it’s important to take the time to consider your dog and your passions. While your favorite alternative country band might be the 2003 alternative band The Little Willies, do you think those three words would be suitable for a dog? Possibly not. Therefore, the first consideration is the feasibility of the name. Imagine trying to fill out their veterinary paperwork with such a mouthful!

The personality of your dog can also be something worth considering. Some dogs have old souls, suiting names like Graham, Roman, and Wayne, but some have more energy, making them more ideal for alternative country dog names such as Hansen, Guthrie, and Hawk. Look at your dog and call them by the name you think will “be” them. You’ll have your answer soon enough.

The gender can also make a difference to the variety of alternative country dog names you have on your list. In most cases, you would not name your female dog Matthew or Thomas. You would, however, call her Carrie or Lindi. Some names are unisex, but not all are. The color makes very little difference, so the options are endless on that front. Pick your alternative country dog names wisely.
