Burmese Language Dog Names

The Burmese naming culture is extremely interesting as it lacks the same structure as many other languages do. Because the Barmars do not have the same patronymic and matronymic systems like many others, there are actually no last names (surnames) at all! On top of this, people in this culture can change their name at any time without much government interference, which comes in handy when a large event happens in their life that requires something as important as a name change. Traditionally, Burmese names stay around one syllable and had very simple meanings. Today it is still the same, but the syllables have increased to around four for males and five for females.

Burmese Language Dog Name Considerations

Burmese language names can literally be for any-dog and every-dog. Due to the fact that the culture's naming structure is already very loosely based, it isn't difficult at all to assume that the same would be applied to pets as well. So, if you are someone who tends to be unsure about things, never fear! These names are simple yet unique, and if you really decide you don't like it later on, you could change it if you wanted too; just keep in mind that dogs may be a bit more confused by a name change than a person would be, so perhaps make the change while they are still young if anything else. 

When it comes to deciding what name might fit your pup best in the first place, it may be a good idea to consider personality first and foremost. This is because Burmese names have simple meanings, such as "Za" which means "Lace" or "Ye" which means "brave". There are quite a few other examples that work well with colors, so if you want to name your pup after their appearance you could choose the name "Wunna" (as it means gold) or perhaps "Yuzana" (meaning Orange Jasmine) for orange or golden colored breeds.
