Introduction

The concept of divinity is synonymous with the sublime. Any experience that can cause you to take a step back and look at things on a universal scale has the potential to be considered sublime. Any experience that can achieve that same effect while also making you feel more connected to the universe could be considered divine. Whether you're a practicing Buddhist, Muslim, Christian, Aethiest, Deist, or Taoist - we all have a bit of divinity in us. We mean that literally by the way, as humans are made of star stuff. And where do stars come from? That's right, the Heavens above. This article is all about paying homage to the concept of divinity and underscoring a few ways that folks from all around the world appreciate it. Because of the diversity of belief in the divine, the choice of dog names for this theme is extensive!

Divinity Inspired Dog Name Considerations

Divine figures, concepts, and stories have played a massive part in shaping modern society. Giving your dog a divinity inspired name could be seen as a way of paying it forward to the powers that be. Think about it, entire cities have been named after figures from various world religions and mythologies. Even the celestial bodies are named after Greek gods!  When we send rockets and robots into outer space, we usually name them after demigods or deities. And at least three of the most popular superheroes in the world, as of this writing, were inspired by divine figures in some respect or another. We really weren't trying to be over dramatic when we said that divine figures and concepts have shaped our society. Very likely, they'll continue to do so for many years to come. 

Another reason to name your dog after a divine figure or idea would be if you're an active member of any religions or sects. Christianity, Islam, and Hinduism make up the world's top three largest religions to date - out of the 7 plus billion people living on the planet, a combined total of more than 60% of the population belongs to one those three aforementioned groups. It's very likely that the majority of our readers belong to at least one of those religions. And even if not, there's plenty to admire and be inspired by. Take a pen and paper and peruse our list. You are sure to find what you are looking for in a dog name!
