Introduction

It’s officially springtime when you see the air alive with butterflies. They flit from bush to bush and remind us that patience pays off. They’ve spent a significant amount of time in a cocoon, growing and waiting. Then one bright March morning, they burst forth in all their colorful, fairy-like glory. They appear as floating flowers, full of beauty and grace. Your pooch may enjoy flitting about as well, smelling all the fresh, unique marks of spring as they leap, frolic, and play in the sunshine. If your dog reminds you of such winged loveliness and flair, perhaps a butterfly-inspired name will be ideal for your furry pal.

Butterfly Inspired Dog Name Considerations

If you’re in possession of a Papillon, or even a French Bulldog or Corgi, perhaps those ears are enough to signal the image of a springtime butterfly, alive and well in the cool April air. Yorkshire Terriers and Havanese breeds may have that soft, wispy hair as well. When they romp and roam, they sometimes appear to glide as they leap and run. Whatever your dog, if you connect their multi-colored fur or their wing-shaped ears to butterflies, a butterfly-inspired dog name could accentuate their beauty and make for a unique title.

You’ll also have a great time looking through all the strange and wonderful names of butterflies. They’re easily accessed on the web, and many are listed below in the guide. Try a few on your pet; see which one they respond to most. Look for their friendly tail-wag, and that’s a good indication you’ve landed a solid keeper. You might even decide to match your canine’s color with the color of a particular butterfly. Those golden, blue-black, jet black, tawny, and white coats can certainly correspond to a specific butterfly if you do your research. What an interesting story and further connection to nature you may share as you tell your friends about the background of your pup’s name!
