There are several valid methods of choosing a new name for your canine companion. The inspiration for dog names can come from literature, television, movies, art, or from family and can be chosen by meaning, by sound, or by sentiment. Some new pet parents may start their search for the perfect name by looking at the ending of the name, choosing one that fits in with the rest of the family, one that rhymes with another pet’s name, or perhaps one that they have found their specific canine to be particularly responsive to. If you are looking for a name that ends in the letters "lee", this list may include the perfect name for your new pet.
Dog Names Ending in 'lee' in Pop Culture
In 2010, when single mother Yolanda Segovia took in a matted little terrier that her neighbor had found at the local school, she made sure to tell her ten-year-old, Azaiah, not to get too attached. While the dog had no collar and no microchip for identification, there was still a chance the dog could have a home somewhere and they likely wouldn’t have him long. They made flyers right away and got the supplies needed to care for a dog for two or three nights. Azaiah started calling the dog RaeLee (pronounced like Riley), a name that he had heard on television, and the two of them walked together and played fetch in the yard while Christian, Yolanda’s elder son, a twenty-one-year-old with Down’s syndrome and several other debilitating medical conditions, watched happily from the window. They also distributed the flyers to mailboxes throughout the area and placed a Craigslist ad for a found pet. Several days later, the dog’s owner had still not been found, and he was starting to answer to his new name.
One afternoon, Azaiah was out spending time with his father, Yolanda stepped outside to tend to the flowers on her porch, she was startled with RaeLee came flying at the door, barking uncharacteristically. Yolanda opened the door and followed the dog to the boy’s room where Christian, who had recently undergone surgery to his heart and kidneys, had fallen to the floor in a seizure with blood flowing out of his nose and mouth. His mother was able to maneuver her son into a safer position and get medical intervention for him in time, a feat she was told would not have been possible if RaeLee hadn’t come to get her when he did. At that point, she decided to keep the dog if nobody claimed him. A few days later, the original owner of the dog called, a man named Randy Cliff who lived just six blocks away with his wife, four children, and an infant granddaughter; he had been looking for his dog Odie for over a week. When he came by the house to pick up the terrier, the little dog came running out to him, but when Randy he looked at Azaiah crying on the porch and Christian staring out of the window in terror, he couldn’t separate them. He set the little dog down by the boy’s feet and told him that maybe Odie had been meant to find them.
Dog Name Ending in 'lee' Considerations
There are several elements to take into consideration when choosing a name for your new canine companion. It is important to ensure that you choose a name that you can easily and consistently pronounce, to avoid causing confusion on the part of the dog, and it doesn’t hurt to get a head start by picking a name with a sound that your specific dog naturally responds to. Many dogs respond quickly to the long "e" sound that is found in names that end in the letters "lee". There are several ways to narrow down this list and pinpoint exactly the right name for your pet.
Some pet parents may choose to focus on their specific dog’s personality or habits, naming a dog who loves to follow you hiking through the mountains Jahlee, or choosing a name like Idalee for that dog that just doesn’t want to quit working. While a good number of these names are English names based on the suffix "lee", meaning meadow or field, there are some names from other countries as well, so you could highlight your Native American Indian Dog’s heritage by giving them a name like Wamblee or you could choose a Scandinavian name like Karee for your Norwegian Elkhound or Finnish Spitz.
