Danish Dog Name Considerations

If your heart has melted over the story of little Grace, the royal dog, then you are ready to start thinking about the perfect moniker for your new pup. They deserve a great name that they will carry with pride throughout their lives, and Danish names are just that, powerful, elegant, and most of all, cool. So, if you too are a proud owner of a Border Collie, you can name them Grace, just like the Danish royal family did. Or perhaps you lean more towards Frederik, after the Danish Crown Prince. Perhaps Mary works better? Or you can name your pup after one of their children: Christian, Isabella, Vincent, or Josephine. All great names that carry grace and elegance!

However, if you are more into pop culture, you can name your new pup after a famous actor from Denmark? The name Viggo is a great one, after the legendary Viggo Mortensen who played Aragorn in Lord of the Rings. Or perhaps Mads, after Mads Mikkelsen, a famous actor known for his role as Dr. Hannibal Lecter in the hit TV show Hannibal. Maybe Nikolaj, after Nikolaj Coster-Waldau sounds perfect for you, and he is also famous for his iconic role as Jaime Lannister in Game of Thrones. The options are endless, as Denmark is full of talented people whom you can take as inspiration.
