“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 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.
