Introduction

Mythical creatures that dwell in the misty mountains, by the hidden creeks, in the depths of the sea, or in the caves in remote locations are what the fairy tales and legends are made of. Us humans like to imagine these whimsical beings to explain some of the formerly inexplicable natural occurrences, as well as to give each other a good scare once in a while. If you are a fan of the mystical, mythical, and legendary, you might consider naming your dog after one of these extraordinary beings that frequent our dreams, fill our books with exciting stories, and spice up the bonfire circles with their fabulous stories and mysterious appearances that have never been proven.

Creature Dog Name Considerations

Choosing only one name in the sea of creatures from various cultures and mythologies is not an easy task. However, you can pick your favorite mythology and start there. For example, if ancient Greece fascinates you, you can consider choosing a name of one of the creatures described in those legends. One of the options can be the name Demogorgon, a deity of the underworld and a primordial being in the Greek mythology, and the scary monster in Stranger Things. The name Titan can also be interesting since Titans were supernatural creatures living on Mount Othrys and were children of Mother Earth Gaia, and Uranus, the Father of the Sky. Among Titans, there were Theia, Phoebe, Mnemosyne, Hyperion, Coeus, Crius, Rhea, Themis, Cronus, Oceanus, and Iapetus. All fantastic names for your dog!

A famous dog from Greek mythology is Argos, the dog of Odysseus and his faithful companion. Laelaps was a dog that had the destiny of always catching her prey, and Maera was known as the hound of Erigone, and all of them have amazing names that can complement your dog perfectly!
