Introduction

There are many ways to choose a name for a new canine companion. Many pet parents will choose to utilize names from favorite movies or books, while others may choose names that honor friends or family members. Another popular method for finding an appropriate name for your dog is to choose a name with a specific meaning. Names that refer to dark or darkness may be used not only for dogs that have dark coats or coloring but also as a sign of hope for dogs raised up from dark circumstances, or even for those few dogs, like the Great Pyrenees, the Tibetan Mastiff, and the Anatolian Shepherd, who are naturally somewhat nocturnal.

Dog Name Meaning Dark Considerations

Choosing a name for your new pup that that is easy to clearly pronounce and is easily distinguishable from the dog's obedience commands can help to improve training efforts, and choosing one that makes you smile can sometimes help improve the overall bond that you have with your dog. For many people, darkness is not a thing to be feared, but a source of solitude, comfort, and calm, and they may choose a name based on darkness for their new pooch. There are several factors that can be taken into consideration when choosing a name for your new pet from a list of names that have similar definitions. While most of these names are likely to be appropriate to dogs with dark coats, there are other reasons to choose these names as well. Some dogs, like the Chinese Crested or the Xoloitzcuintli, may have soft, dark skin that particularly lends itself to names like Moritz, Wamuiru, and Pinochos, and a dog that is blessed with dark blue eyes may find a name like Sunil is most fitting. Some dogs are naturally somewhat nocturnal as well, leading pet parents to choose names that refer to the dark of night like Laylah, Koko, and Ratri.
