Dakar Dog Name Considerations

It can be difficult to choose a name for your new canine pal; it is understandable that you want to take the decision seriously. After all, you will be calling your dog by the name that you choose for years to come; it makes sense that you want to feel good about the name that you decide upon.

If a name that has meaning is important to you, it can help to come up with ideas from a place that you care about. Take the city of Dakar, for example. With over a million residents, Senegal’s capital city has much to offer. Those who love the beach can choose to name their new pal Madeleine, in honor of an offshore beach in the city. Someone who enjoys football can consider the names of a number of football players from the city, to include Abdoulaye Diagne-Faye, a former player born in Dakar and Bouna Coundoul, who played on Senegal’s National team. Even though some of the names may be long, nicknames are easily found. Abdoulaye Diagne-Faye can be shortened to Faye or Abdoul, for instance.
