Introduction

Whether you’re a diver yourself, just enjoy the sport or have a dog that dock dives, giving your canine companion a diving inspired name can be a great way to set them apart from the rest while bestowing them a title as meaningful as they are to you. There are plenty of options to choose from as well, such as naming them after a specific movement or dive type or even giving them the name of a favorite or famous diver. Whatever you happen to choose, rest assured all the time you spent diving into the depths of themed naming will pay off in the end.

Diving Inspired Dog Name Considerations

When attempting to come up with an appropriate diving inspired dog name, the best course of action is to first list and consider your dog’s most prominent traits, such as their breed type, quirks, looks and personality, as these will be the easiest links to a good name. 

For instance, you can always match your dog up with a diver of the same origin. For Chinese breeds such as Shar Peis, Pugs and Cresteds, the names Wu, Minxia, Guo, Jingjing, Qin and Kai would all be suitable. 

Of course, if you want to dive a bit deeper in terms of meaning, try playing off of their quirks and personality. If your dog loves to flip or roll, the names Somersault, Tuck, Twist and Gainer would all be good options. For a dog that never quite succeeds on their first try, consider names like Bail, Balk and Crow. For those who are good or frequent jumpers, the names Springboard, Takeoff and Hurdle would all be good. For an uncoordinated dog or one who just loves to make a splash, the names Splash and Cannonball would certainly fit them. 

There are plenty of ways you can go from basing it on a movement, technique, event, famous diving spot or even a famous diver, so dig in and see what category speaks to you and your dog most, then do some experimenting.
