The Bluetick Coonhound, named for its color and “tick” markings, is brilliant in both appearance and intellect. On many days, it may be found tracking scents on trails or playfully interacting with families. At home in the wide open country, in spacious fenced-in yards, and among dense forests, the Bluetick Coonhound connects with its history of the nighttime prowl. In fact, Blueticks were bred and prized by early American settlers who longed for hunting companions that could follow week-old spoors and eventually discover the hideouts of wild game. Famous for its inherent, high prey-drive and signature bay, these all-American, energetic hunters are also known for their friendliness, loyalty, and obedience. The Bluetick Coonhound is a sharp problem-solver that seeks to perform and to please and protect its owner. Speedy and determined, this sleek, speckled breed still dazzles us today. Indeed, a creature of such beauty and skill certainly deserves a name that dazzles as well!

Bluetick Coonhound Dog Name Considerations

When choosing a name for your Bluetick Coonhound, consider their history in the United States. These strong nocturnal hunters led their masters to desired meat and skins. They blazed the trails. Their bawls and bays into the night might startle or even annoy some, but for early settlers, the howls signaled moments of joy and celebration: the task was complete, the battle won. Even today, you’ll find that Blueticks are playful yet driven. They are inquisitive and devoted, quick to frolic but also to safeguard their owners.

Further, much inspiration may be found in their striking appearances. The stunning, mottled coat of black, blue, gray, brown, and white affords many color- or pattern-based names. Their childlike energy combined with a somewhat regal air makes them perfect for bearing both humorous and sophisticated titles. On the one hand, you might call him Huck because he boasts a sort of southern charm and dark, mischievous eyes. On the other hand, Etta may fit best because she’s more careful and astute. She’s the head of the household ― at least in her mind. Ultimately, choose a name that suits your Bluetick’s personality and unique physical traits.
