Athens Dog Name Considerations

Anyone who has ever visited Athens, Greece has probably seen firsthand the many stray dogs that run in packs throughout the city. Athens is a city that glitters and is famous for its combination of old and new. However, the canine citizens that prowl the streets are easily visible. Many locals dislike the dogs, but others consider them a crucial part of the city's existence. 

Years ago, Athens had a problem with stray dogs running the streets. The pet overpopulation in the city had reached staggering numbers, so the city officials decided to start rounding up all of the dogs to spay and neuter them. The canines were then returned to the streets. The program was a success, and now the aging population of canines has become a familiar site that many tourists look forward to seeing. 

It is only natural that you might want to name your canine buddy after the lovely, historic Greek city of Athens which honored its canine residents by spaying and neutering instead of euthanizing. There are many famous Greek gods, philosophers, and others who have called Athens home that you might also want to name your pooch after. Whatever Athen's related name you pick will be unique, and many people will ask you why you chose such a title.
