We all want our dogs to have a unique and interesting name, but coming up with one can be really tough! Should you go with a name from a TV series, a movie, maybe even an anime or manga? Should you focus on your favorite music genre or name your new pup after your favorite actor? Or perhaps, you need to honor your travels or hobbies and come up with the craziest moniker ever. Thinking about all that can get a bit overwhelming, but if you need a place to start, how about you start with the ending of the name? How about choosing "an" as the ending?

Dog Name Ending in 'an' Considerations

Sure, when you just look at the suffix, you may think that there are no names out there that end in “an,” but that is simply not true. There are plenty of names out there with this beautiful ending which can suit your doggo like the crown they deserve! Just look at all the options you have – Dylan, just like Dylan Dog, Alan, much like the beloved actor Alan Rickman, Gillian, after our X Files goddess Gillian Anderson, or even Joan, after the Godmother of Punk, Joan Jett! If you are not satisfied with these options, you can always name your doggo after the dashing Cillian Murphy, an English actor who played the iconic Tommy Shelby in Peaky Blinders, or, if you are feeling the thriller night, Billie Jean, after a girl who is not Michael Jackson’s lover.

Other famous “an”  people are Ewan McGregor, a charming actor who played the enamored Christian in Moulin Rouge, or Sean Bean, the actor with iconic roles such as Boromir in The Lord of the Rings, and Ned Stark in A Game of Thrones. And let’s not forget the girls either! You can name your princess Siobhan, after Siobhan Fahey, an Irish singer, member of Bananarama, or Meghan, after the Duchess of Sussex, formerly known as Meghan Markle.
