Best 2-Letter Dog Name Considerations

Selecting a dog name isn't as easy as it may appear upon first glance. Sure, you could name her "Fluffy" and call it a day, but what good will that do? Your dog's name will forever be something you came up with on the spot, something of no real meaning, no affection, and no originality. 

And as anyone knows, dogs are best friends. They are there when no one else is. They're loyal until the end, they're protective and trusting, loving and accepting. So, of course they deserve more than just whatever name you know comes easiest! When selecting a dog's name, remember to pay attention to her personality, appearance, likes, dislikes, favorite toys, favorite food, and yes, even their favorite shows. Maybe they can't get enough of Game of Thrones, or Stranger Things.  

It's also a smart idea to check out your dog's background. For instance, Siberian Huskies developed in Russia by indigenous people known as the Chukchis. The dogs helped them thrive in an otherwise inhospitable environment. They would transport goods and people. In other words, this is an ancient breed, so a name influenced by its heritage, or sheer age, would be a good idea!  Don't be afraid to think outside the box.
