Introduction

Aramaic language is a language group that belongs to the subfamily of Semitic languages and includes Hebrew and Phoenician. Geographically it is spread across the Levant, the Fertile Crescent, and Eastern Arabia, and is considered to be one of the oldest languages in the world. It was originally spoken by the Arameans who lived in what is now Syria. It is one of the languages of the Talmud, and also can be seen in the Biblical works of Ezra and Daniel, and it is also considered to be the language Jesus Christ himself spoke. So, safe to say that it had a lot of influence on the names and languages of today!

Aramaic Dog Name Considerations

Finding inspiration for the new name for your dog can sometimes seem impossible because just when we need to do something, we find our brains to be a completely blank slate. Which is normal, of course, but quite annoying! Luckily, the muse is out there, and you just need to reach her somehow! For example, choosing the Aramaic language or, more importantly, names that come from the Aramaic culture will give you plenty of options to choose from, and one of them will surely fit your new pup’s personality, looks, and gorgeous puppy eyes.

One example is the name Martha, quite a serious name of Paul McCartney’s beloved dog that even got her own song! Another option is to go for toponyms, or, in plain English, place names. One of such names is Palmyra, the ancient city in present-day Syria, once occupied by Arameans, among others, Aram, a region from which the ancient Northwest Semitic Aramaic tribe emerged, or even Babylon, an ancient city which the Arameans conquered. These places are historical and have amazing stories told about them, so you can even educate your friends and family on the history of the world when they ask you why you named your doggo after a non-existing city today.
