Arizona Dog Name Considerations

Arizona dog name considerations are not usually dog breed, color, or size specific; however, owners may want to take some consideration when naming their dogs an Arizona theme name.  For example, you may consider naming your dog after a favorite destination in Arizona, like Greer for a male dog or Sedona for a female dog.  Sedona, which is world-renowned for its red rock formations may also suit a red-colored dog better, such as a Miniature Pinchers or a Dachshund.  You may also consider more subtle or "Arizona insider" names, like Biscuit, especially if you live in or near Prescott, Arizona.  The residents of Prescott pronounce the city's name "Pre-skit, like a biscuit" and they are eager to correct the out-of-towners.  If your dog is destined to be a behemoth of a canine, you may consider naming her Saguaro, which is an Arizona cactus that grows to 40 feet tall.  White-colored canines can enjoy a double name meaning with Cotton as both a reference to coat color and the cash crop that helped project Arizona's economy in days passed.  Breed specific names in might include Chimi or Margarita for a Chihuahua, which pays homage to the Mexican infused cultural so popular in Arizona.
