Introduction

There are several ways to choose a name for your new canine companion; you can choose a name from family or pet history, pick a name from a favorite book, movie, or game, or even opt for the name of a celebrity. A popular choice is to select a name based on the meaning of that name. A name that means chief, such as the names on the list presented here, makes an excellent choice for many different circumstances. A name meaning chief may be particularly well-suited for dogs in authority, in other words, police dogs, military dogs, and even the lead dog on sled teams.

Dog Name Meaning Chief Considerations

There are several things to take into consideration when choosing a name for your pooch, even from a list of names that mean the same thing. It is important that whatever name that you choose for your pup be easy to distinguish from training commands and easy for you to pronounce both clearly and distinctly. You can break down a list like this in several ways, depending on your interests and your dog's interests and personality. For instance, you may choose a name like Akida for a dog with very diplomatic leadership abilities, or a name like Sanjeev, after the Chief of Monkeys, for a dog that tends to jump all over the place. You can also look to your dog’s breed or place of origin to help you choose. This can lead to names like Glory or Hiamovi for a Native American Indian dog, Bek for a Turkish Kangal Shepherd dog, or Flosi, Nils, or Jorunn for dog breeds with a Nordic heritage such as Old Danish Pointing dogs, Karelian Bear Dogs, and Norwegian Elkhounds. You may even want to celebrate a famous chief like Powhatan, who met and fought with settlers landing on American soil, or Wilma Mankiller, the first female Principal Chief of the Cherokee Nation.
