If you need to name the new companion in your life, this can be challenging. There are so many names to think about, so it’s always best to try and narrow down your search. Thinking of names that begin or end with a specific letter is a great way to reduce your list and cut down on your choices. Sometimes, people choose a particular pattern if they have more than one pet. They choose names that end with the same sound, which can be fun, and can add an interesting twist to the pet family's names. There are some great titles out there that end with the letter "l", so read on for inspiration.
Dog Names Ending in 'l' In Pop Culture
There are some many names ending in the letter "l", and some of these are unusual names while others are pretty regular. Regardless, there will certainly be a name that suits your taste in this guide.
In popular culture, dog names ending in "l" are common amongst celebrities. Reece Witherspoon has Coco Chanel, and Paris Hilton owned a Chihuahua named Tinkerbell. Adam Sandler owned a little French Bulldog named Meatball, who died in January 2004. The Sandler’s held a memorial service for their beloved pooch, who Adam had owned for many years. Meatball’s younger brother Matzoball attended the memorial.
A Matzo Ball is actually a Jewish Christmas eve nightlife event, held in a number of major cities across the US and Canada. This is a fitting name for Sandler’s pet, as he is Jewish, and sources suggest that before he got married, his wife also became Jewish in order to have a Jewish wedding ceremony.
Matzoball Sandler has found himself in the spotlight on many occasions. He is certainly a huge part of their family life, and in 2007, Sandler was photographed leaving his hotel room in New York City with the lovable Bulldog. In 2008, Matzoball appeared in the press as he almost drowned on a Santa Monica beach. Sources say he got too close to the water and was pulled out into the water. As Bulldogs are unable to swim, Sandler saved his beloved pet by pulling him back onto the beach.
Matzoball was also photographed again with the Sandlers in June 2016, when sources stated that the family had packed up “all the essentials” and were spotted boarding a private jet to Los Angeles, with Matzoball in tow. It was noted that Matzoball explored the runway and was eager to investigate the plane.
It’s fair to make the assumption that Matzoball is an important member of the Sandler family. The truth is, we all become attached to our four-legged friends and just like Matzoball, they do become part of your family, often like a child. That’s exactly why choosing a name is so difficult and it’s a huge responsibility. Naming our pets can be just as daunting as naming a baby. Sources indicate that Sandler has always been very fond of dogs, so Matzoball’s name definitely means something to Adam.
Dog Names Ending in 'l' Considerations
When naming your new addition, there are some things to consider. You should choose a name that suits your pooch and this could be based on different traits or even appearance. Sometimes we choose a name based on the size of a dog; a toy breed could be called Lil, for instance.
Color is another name consideration to make. Names like Coral and Hazel are great names inspired by color. Temperament is another consideration as this often influences name choice, and this is because we want a name that suits the nature of our pet. The name, Conall means strong wolf in Gaelic and will be just the fit for your strong natured pooch. Rascal is ideal for the mischievous canine in your life, or what about an angelic name like Raphael, Gabriel, and Angel?
Take a look at the suggestions below and make a list of any names you like for your new addition. You can go back to those names later, but if you still can’t decide, why not talk to family and friends to see which name they prefer? You could even create a ballot box and vote – why not have a dog naming get together for family and friends!
