For someone who feels a connection to Colorado, a name inspired by the state will evoke the positive feelings that you have every time that you call for your new friend. You may choose a Colorado-inspired name if your pup reminds you of a particular dog from the state, whether due to his breed, appearance or personality.

If you envision spending a lot of time outdoors in the state, a name related to the state makes perfect sense. Colorado has many places to look at and enjoy thinking about when seeking ideas for names reminding you of the state.
