Introduction

Our world has existed for a lot longer than we have been around. Before we were born, cultures rose and fell. There were mighty empires that did not worry about our existence. Monarchs who were sure that their memory would endure forever, only to fade into obscurity. History gives us many fascinating legends, and although those cultures don't exist anymore, they still influence modern culture. One such culture was that of the Celts. Although they did not survive until our day, their myths and legends do. These are interesting stories with plenty of heroic names for your beloved new pet.

Celtic Mythology Dog Name Considerations

It can be hard to separate Celtic legends from the Irish and Welsh legends since they are all so closely intertwined. We do not know nearly enough about these ancient people, but we do know enough to make us want to know more. For this naming guide, we chose Celtic names with interesting meanings. Some of them were plucked from the myths themselves and have rich stories to back them up. When choosing a name, you can decide if you want to name your dog after gods, heroes, villains or a name with an interesting meaning and even more interesting spelling. 

These myths have come a long way, they have traveled through time and were carefully preserved by the early Christian monks. At first, the monks had their doubts about recording these pagan stories. That is until Saint Patrick professed to have received a vision in which he was told to respectfully preserve these stories. Thanks to their efforts, we now have these fascinating tales. If it weren't for them, these stories would have been lost in time or adopted by other cultures. Unlike Greek myths, the Celtic deities were humanized which makes them very interesting to study in our day. Consider one of the names in our list that may describe the wonderful characteristics of your new addition.
