“Creativity takes courage” Henri Matisse once wisely said, and his famous quote can be applied to many realms of life, not only art. Creativity does indeed take bravery, especially when it comes to an important decision of coming up with a creative name for your lifelong companion, your lovely dog. Our beloved pups are with us through thick and thin, so honoring their love and friendship with a unique name is nothing short of artistic. Therefore, immersing yourself in the world of art will give you many ideas of possible names for your new pupper.
Artist Inspired Dog Names in Pop Culture
Vincent Van Gogh is one of the most celebrated artists in the world and one of the most genius creators that ever lived. Therefore, it is no surprise that many people and dogs alike bear his name. One of such dogs is the lovely Labrador Retriever Vincent, a star of the hit series Lost. Lost is one of those shows that can leave even the most attentive ones confused and wondering just what is going on with those people now, but everyone can agree on one thing, that Vincent was definitely the cutest cast member and the most adorable character in the series.
The incredibly handsome Vincent was the only non-human survivor of the dreaded Oceanic Flight 815, and his time spent on the island is nothing short of adventurous. Vincent began his island escapade by exploring the island where he became best friends with Walt, the little boy survivor. Walt spends much of his time looking for Vincent who seldom gets lost in the jungle. However, even though it might seem not-ideal that he goes off wandering around the island, Vincent is actually a very good boy. He managed to wake up the whole camp when the intruders, wild boars, were to come close to the survivors, he always protected Walt, and was a constant emotional support to many of the Oceanic flight survivors.
Vincent was one of the main reasons the gang found the DHARMA van, as he was the one who found the key on a rabbit’s foot in the jungle. Therefore, it is safe to say that the survivors would not be as insightful, as successful, and as socialized as they were if it weren’t for Vincent.
The great Vincent van Gogh, Vincent’s name buddy, was a Dutch painter who wowed the world with his masterpieces, and who was also quite fond of dogs. His famous saying “If you don’t have a dog - at least one - there is not necessarily anything wrong with you, but there may be something wrong with your life” is one that most dog lovers can subscribe to. And how can we not? Dogs make life more beautiful, make us realize the value of friendship, and lifelong love, and our pets are the most influential “people” in our lives. All we can hope for is that we will someday become the people our dogs think we are, and isn’t that worth striving for?
Artist Inspired Dog Name Considerations
Hey art lover! Time to name your new doggo! Is your new pup blessed with an orange fur coat? Perhaps you are a proud owner of a Rhodesian Ridgeback, Galgo Espanol, or a Vizsla? If so, the oh so posh name Arearea might be perfect! The name comes from one of Paul Gauguin’s paintings in which an orange doggo takes the spotlight. Speaking of Gauguin, he was also fond of his canine friends, and animals in general, having painted them quite a lot.
Inspired by Paul Gauguin, maybe you’ll decide to name your small, black pup Breton, to honor the famous painting Breton Women at the Turn, a stunning work of art, in which the spotlight, again, belongs to an adorable black pup. If you are feeling adventurous, why not name your new pup Guggenheim, after one of the most famous museums in the world? Another solid choice in the same field is Prado, the legendary museum in Madrid, home of many masterpieces, some of which belong to the celebrated artist Francisco Goya, another great choice of a name for your doggy. In any case, drawing inspiration from the great artists is a great option, and a good way to have a compelling backstory behind your pup’s name.
