Dog Name Meaning Good Luck Considerations

When considering a pet name, many owners think about tales that they have heard. In Scotland, it has been believed for centuries that if you meet a stray canine then you will experience good luck. If the stray dog is black, then you will have even more good luck. 

In France, it is widely accepted that if you accidentally step into a pile of dog poop then you will have good luck all day. However, there is a catch to the superstition and that is that the foot you step into the pile with must be your left foot. If you step into it with your right foot then you will not have good or bad luck. You will just be faced with the nasty task of cleaning off your shoe. 

Overall, most humans believe in some form of superstition.  Such a belief scheme often encourages the new owner of a dog to pick a moniker that they feel is lucky or will bring goodness to the dog's life. Many believe that the luck that is attached to a certain name will have a direct effect on the dog. Such a belief scheme is often referred to as, 'sympathetic magic,'  by psychologists. 

According to research undertaken by Richard Hooker, the Director of Veterinary Services at PDSA, which is the largest pet insurance provider in the United Kingdom, there is a direct bearing on a name and a dog's luck. Pet insurance policies were analyzed between 2012 to 2015 to determine if names had any effect on a dog's overall life. They looked at dogs who had suffered traumatic injuries for falls, surgery, or accidents. They also looked at policies of canines who had suffered from cancer or other pre-existing diseases. Overall, it was determined that dogs with the names Bruno, Cassie, Jake, and Izzy suffered the most accidents and early onset diseases compared to all other dogs. 

If you are seeking to give your dog a handle that promotes good luck, you should avoid names that are known to be unlucky and focus only on ones that promote luck.
