Introduction

Whether you’re into electronic dance music or a DJ yourself, giving your dog a DJ-inspired name is an apt way to pay tribute to both your faithful friend and your favorite music. And realistically, they have a few things in common even if it doesn’t seem like it on the surface. Your dog is probably reliable as a beat, may like to dance (or show the appearance of dancing) when they’re excited, both dogs and DJs like most things that spin off tables (dinner or turn), and both will generally light up a room with their presence and the right people. So why not give them a name that says as much?

DJ Inspired Dog Name Considerations

Finding the right dog name can be a bit of a challenge, especially if you choose to roll with a themed name. Realistically, unless you have a dreadlocked dog breed and want to name your dog Skrillex, there’s not much you can do to match your dog with an artist aesthetically, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t other ways to go.

You can always go with a DJ term over an actual DJ name. For instance, if they have different colored ears than the rest of their head and it looks like they’re wearing headphones, then Phones would be a good pick the same way a dog with one different colored leg would be a perfect match for the name Bootleg (even if the meaning is different in this context). If your dog loves to scratch itself (or any of your furniture), then Scratch would be ideal for obvious reasons (or the name DJ itself, just so you can say to yourself “That DJ is always scratching”). If they love to bake in the sun and lounge outside on your deck or patio, then Dex or Decks would certainly suit them. For a dog that always barks in the same pattern, then Hook, Loop, Cue, and Remix would all be perfectly suitable. 

There are tons of ways to conceive the name and find a good match, so don’t hesitate to get creative — and don’t forget to turn on some tunes for inspiration if need be.
