Introduction

Elves are prevalent throughout popular culture, starting with the first mention of elves in Germanic folklore. They became more popular first due to their depiction as happy, tireless workers in Santa’s Workshop, an idea propagated by illustrations on magazines starting in the mid-1800s. The release of J.R.R. Tolkien's first Middle Earth novel, The Hobbit, in 1937, gave the public a different type of elf. Instead of diminutive workers, they were depicted as beautiful and intelligent beings, with supernatural powers and near-immortality. Since then both the diminutive worker elves of Santa’s Workshop and the regal, long-lived elves of Tolkien's Middle Earth have captured our imaginations and have been represented in many popular books and movies.

Dog Name Meaning Elf Considerations

There are several ways that you can choose to pinpoint the perfect name for your new dog from a list of names related to a specific subject. Some pet parents may choose to utilize a name that describes the dog physically, for instance, a name like Aellflaed, meaning elf beauty, or it could describe the personality of the dog, such as names like Elfi, Alvina, or Nissa for a friendly dog, or Goncalo, Alfhild, Auberon for a combative one. Purpose-related names are also available, names like Aylward, meaning elf guardian, Alfred, meaning elf counsel, or even Louella, meaning famous elf. Your own interests are also likely to play a part in choosing a name, people who are big fans of the Christmas season may be more likely to name their dogs after Christmas related elves, such as Judy or Bernard from The Santa Clause while those who prefer the elves of old Germanic tradition may choose names like Ljosalfar, Dokkalfar, or Freyr. Literary-minded folks have several options; fans of more contemporary novels like Harry Potter or Artemis Fowl can choose from names like Dobby, Hokey, Kreacher, or Holly, and those who prefer the classic Lord of the Rings series that helped to popularize and shape much of the elven lore we have today can choose from names like Galadriel, Legolas, or Arwen.
