Nowadays, when it seems as if the whole world is speaking English, being fluent in another language is considered to be a great advantage. If you are someone who loves to explore new cultures, learn new languages, and embrace new ideas, learning Belarusian sounds like a fun thing to do. Belarusian is an East Slavic language, similar to Russian, Ukrainian, and Rusyn, with Cyrillic alphabet, widely spoken in Belarus, Poland, Czech Republic, and Ukraine. If you have dived into the Belarusian language in full swing, you may get inspired by the Belarusian culture and name your dog after one of their many talented individuals.
Belarusian Language Dog Names in Pop Culture
Can a dog be a hero? Can he save the day? Can he prove to us all that we really do not deserve dogs and that we should ask ourselves every day what we did to have them in our lives? The answer is yes. Dogs are our best friends, they are our protectors, and the discreet heroes that can save us from even the hardest of perils. One such heroic dog is the lovely Malinois called Max, the main character and the star of the 2015 hit film called simply – Max.
Max started as a helper to Kyle Wincott, a U.S. Marine in Afghanistan. The two of them were best friends and fellow soldiers, however, at one point, during the battle, a suicide bomber’s explosion injures Max and kills Kyle. Naturally, Max was devastated, and cannot keep calm. When Kyle was buried back home, the other Marines noticed something interesting. Max would only be calm when he was around Kyle’s younger brother Justin, an illegal video game salesman. Not knowing what to do, the Marines let the family adopt the dog to avoid euthanizing him, which they resorted to due to his unpredictable behavior.
Justin’s friend Chuy and his cousin Carmen teach max a few tricks, and bit by bit, his behavioral issues begin fading away. However, Kyle’s old friend Tyler, who was also in the battlegrounds with him, visits the family, which makes Max angry and apprehensive. Justin and the rest of the family wonder why he would have such a reaction to a fellow soldier, and Tyler lies and says that Max betrayed Kyle, causing him to get hurt and pass away in the process. However, Justin did not believe this story completely and decided to investigate this claim and really see what was going on in Afghanistan. He receives a video of Kyle training Max, which shows him just how devoted and loving Max is, and how well the two of them got along.Finally, in a not so surprising twist, we find out that Tyler is colluding with the members of a cartel, trying to sell them stolen weapons, which was the reason why Kyle and Max found themselves on that battlefield. Max fights with the cartel dogs, and is taken by animal control, but manages to escape. He comes back home, and in an exhilarating climax manages to knock Tyler over the bridge.
Belarusian Language Dog Name Considerations
When you are thinking about the perfect Belarusian name for your dog, you can always turn to the world of art and name them after one of the many talented people that created beautiful artworks, movies, photographs, and books. However, if you are not into naming your dog after people, and you want something more elusive, and if you want more freedom, you can use a good old dictionary and find a word in Belarusian that corresponds to the epithet you think of when you think about your new pup. For example, since your dog is the epitome of love, you can name them Kahanne, which means love in Belarusian. Or, if you want to show the world just how sweet and cute they are, name them Mily, which translates to cute in Belarusian.
If you want to be a bit funny, you can go the classic route and name them Sabaka, which literally translates to dog in Belarusian and Russia as well. Lapa means paw, and Ščaniuk means puppy in Belarusian. If your doggy is the sweetest little munchkin in the world, you can name them Salodki, which means sweet, or if you want to use their fur color as inspiration, you can opt for Biely which means white, Čorny which means black, or Šery which translates to grey in Belarusian.
