Introduction

The term Baltic Mythology is something of a catch-all phrase that refers to various religions from a group of Indo-European people - the Balts. Lithuanian Lore, Latvian Lore, and Prussian Myth would also be considered a part of Baltic Mythology, as these groups are historically tied to the Baltic people in some way or another. Even if you feel that you're not very familiar with the Baltic culture, you've probably been exposed to a few figures from Baltic Lore via the television, books, movies, songs, or video games. Pajauta - the fabled Princess of Kernavė - has partially inspired numerous fictional princesses like Princess Zelda and Princess Leia. And that's only scratching the surface of how Baltic Myth has influenced pop and contemporary culture. The Baltic Mythology theme allows for plenty of dog name choices!

Baltic Mythology Dog Name Considerations

One reason to give your dog a Baltic Mythology inspired name would be if you have ties to Baltic, Lithuanian, Latvian, or Prussian culture. If you're able to, trace your family tree back to your earliest ancestors. If you're of Caucasian or European descent, specifically if you have any family members from Eastern Europe, you may end up finding an ancestor who was born and raised in the Indo-European part of the world! Even if you don't have any hereditary ties to Baltic culture, you may find that your particular breed of dog hails from that region; Polish Hounds, Cesky Terriers, and Transylvanian Hounds all hail from Eastern Europe. It could be suitable to name a dog from Eastern Europe after a figure from their culture. 

Another reason to name your dog after a figure, place, or concept from Baltic Mythology could be that you simply find the topic fascinating; World Myths often reflect how various peoples from around the globe deal with lofty subjects such as our cosmological place in the world, where we come from, and where we're going. World Myths are just as cerebral as they are spiritual and can help one understand much about a group of people by reading about their collective past.
