Introduction

So, ever since primary school, you’ve been dreaming about having a dog, and ever since high school, you’ve been obsessed with philosophers of the Antiquity.

Ancient People Dog Name Considerations

If your dog appears to be exceptionally intelligent and strategic when fetching, binge eating in the park or learning new tricks, consider giving him a name to reflect his phenomenal intellectual capacities. To help with that, the olden times have left us myriads of mathematicians, physicists, and philosophers that could be your inspiration. You just need to choose your favorite one – perhaps Ari, as in Aristotle, or Leo, short for Leonardo da Vinci. These ancient brainiacs are perfect for breeds that are prone to be quite smart, so Jack Russell Terriers, Border Collies, and Poodles fit into that category without a single doubt.

But don’t forget all of the royals and the emperors of the ancient times! There are so many historical figures that were quite fierce, confident, and prudent, and these are characteristics that all dogs possess to a certain extent, but are especially suitable for German Shepherds and Saint Bernards. Therefore, names such as Caesar, Napoleon or Elisabeth will telltale that your dog is not just a mere monarch with no brains, but also the most capable and dependable best friend you could have. Additional advice: Choose a famous emperor or empress that ruled the country your dog’s breed originated from.
