Cornish Dog Name Considerations

Even the Duchess of Cornwall is known to adore dogs. She owns darling Jack Russell Terriers that are known to often steal the show wherever she goes. In addition, she is the royal patron of several animal rescues in the area. 

Cornwall's history with dogs is long and diverse. There is even folklore about canines in the region. The phantom dog of Linkinhorn has been a story that has been told and retold for centuries. It involves a black ghost dog who regularly haunts locals. The ghostly apparition is said to roam the lonely roadside between Linkinhorne and Stoke Climsland which is near Callington, Cornwall. Many locals speculate that the canine ghost frequents the area looking for his long-lost owner. However, many say it is a demon dog or a shapeshifter. During the 1800s, there was a massive mine collapse that caused the death of numerous miners. After the mine cave-in, many locals started to see a single black dog or an entire pack of the beasts. 

If you love everything Cornish, then why not name your furry buddy a truly unique name that focuses on Cornwall. Alfie is a cute Cornish name for a male dog. The name means wise counsel. Perhaps Evie for a sweet girl dog?
