Cairo Dog Name Considerations

When selecting a Cairo-inspired name for your dog, remember why you thought of Cairo in the first place. It's the capital of Egypt, and Egyptian history and heritage runs deep. Ancient Egypt was a massive force to be reckoned with, with its lavish riches, and dirt poor poverty. Pyramid building, artistic pursuits, and politics were all integral aspects of life in Egypt. So take all of that richness into consideration when naming your dog. It can be very valuable, and lead to some amazing name selections.

Another thing to take into consideration is your dog's ties to Egypt. Basenji are thought to have first been owned by the pharaohs. Same with the Pharaoh Hounds, which spanned all the way to ancient Greece as well. The Saluki is yet another. They used to go fox, hare and gazelle hunting in the desert. If your dog has no ties to Egypt, don't worry. Just think about your dog's appearance, personality and preferences. Large, agile dogs would benefit from some of the powerful Egyptian names found in this guide. Even smaller dogs could benefit from ancient Egyptian names, as long as they act like royalty. In other words, the sky is the limit. Be creative and use your imagination. Above all, don't settle for anything that seems forced.
