Introduction

The Ariege Pointing dog, known as the Braque de l'Ariège in their native country of France, are agile and graceful hunting dogs that are very skilled at locating game, even in completely new environments. Due to disagreements about breed preferences that led to differing hunting behaviors and several cases of albinism, these exceptional French pointing dogs nearly became extinct in the early twentieth century, but were re-established towards the end of that century. Like most hunting and pointing breeds, these dogs are energetic and friendly animals who are typically well behaved, but they are also independently minded dogs who tend to follow their noses, and they have a strong prey drive that can get them into trouble.

Ariege Pointing Dog Name Considerations

Ariege Pointing Dogs are a fairly rare breed, and they are typically still employed as hunting dogs rather than as family companions or show dogs. When choosing a name for a hunting dog, you will want a name that is easy for you to pronounce and one that you don’t mind shouting out over long distances, making shorter names better choices than longer names, especially when actively hunting, although a well thought out nickname can also work. While names such as Scout, Tracker, or Ranger are perfectly acceptable for any hunting dog, this list of French names is designed to honor the heritage of the Ariege Pointing dog, a breed that was developed to hunt hare and upland birds in France. There are names in the list that can describe the physical appearance of the dog, such as Bayard, meaning reddish-brown, Jolie, meaning pretty, or Brice, meaning speckled, while others describe traits typical to the breed, such as Viviette, meaning alive and lively or Gregory, meaning watchful and vigilant. There are a number of names which describe the job of a hunting dog as well, including Gaspard, meaning treasure bearer, Yvette, meaning archer, Chercher, the French word for search, or Chasseur or Theron, both of which mean hunter.
