Jazz is often heralded for its musical complexities, its history, and its non-stop transformation over the years, including several reinventions since its inception in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and because of it, the genre has never ceased to amaze and delight fans of all types and even now, moves forward in its own right with contemporary jazz. While some of the names involved in the modern movement may not hold the same weight as that of Miles Davis or Thelonious Monk, it still holds considerable talent and better yet, titles that will soon be cementing themselves in the history books like their predecessors, leaving us a top-notch list of Neo-classic names perfect for pairing up with our pups.

Contemporary Jazz Dog Name Considerations

While many other themed names have the benefit of immediate recognition or a crossover between intended meaning, contemporary jazz names tend to be a bit more obscure and idiosyncratic, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get away with being clever.

For instance, a dog short in stature would be well-suited with the name Shorter, the same as a sweet dog named Candy would, while both could still be tied into their respective jazz artists. A dog that likes to crawl around (such as Sprout the Brussels), would be the perfect candidate for Krall, a play on both Diana Krall and the dog’s quirky habits. A dog whose bark sounds like a trumpet (or has frequent gas issues) would be a prime candidate for the name Toots, the same as a skinny dog who loves to chew would be perfect for the name Boney, after Boney James. 

Of course, you can always take the easy road and just name them after your favorite artist, but if you’re seeking a bit more depth, don’t hesitate to do some research on a few different artists to see if there are any appropriate commonalities you can use to base your decisions on, especially if they’re just as notable or quirky as your dog.
