Bosnian Dog Names

Introduction

Bosnia and Herzegovina is a country in the Balkans, Southeastern Europe, “on” the Adriatic coast. We say “on” because Bosnia has only a small portion of the coast, only about 20 kilometers in the town called Neum. The rest of the Adriatic coast belongs to Croatia and Montenegro, so poor Bosnians just have about 12 miles of beach fun. However, this did not stop Bosnia from becoming one of the most intriguing countries in the world, with a rich history, astounding food, and the undying love for furry little creatures – dogs! In the capital, Sarajevo, you can find many doggos with their lucky owners walking happily on the cobblestone, sipping coffee by the river (humans, not dogs, don’t give coffee to your pup), and singing the famous sevdalinka songs about love and pain.

Bosnian Dog Name Considerations

Choosing the perfect name for your pup is no easy task, as the name has to be original, fun, and meaningful. Well, it is ideal then that you chose Bosnia to be your inspiration. Not only is there an abundance of Bosnian names out there, but you can also use plain words that sound cool in English as monikers for your pup. One of such words is Burek, an excellent name for a doggo and the most delicious food sent to Earth by gods. Burek is greasy, cheesy, and oh so delicious, and if you have never tried it, give it a little nibble, we promise you’ll want to name your first born Burek, not just your dog. 

Another marvelous option is Ker, a colloquial word for a dog in Bosnia. The official word for dog is Pas, also a fantastic option for your lovely pup. Hanuma is the Bosnian word for a lady, perfect for a classy doggo, and if you are looking for the most beautiful name in the Bosnian language, choose Sevdah. Sevdah is an obscure word, untranslatable almost. It means love, longing, sadness, passion, fiery soul, enthusiasm. Basically, Sevdah is all emotions a human can feel summed up in one word, and if it isn’t the most beautiful word out there, then, as Shakespeare said, no man has ever loved.
