Introduction

Dogs are well known for being man's (and woman's) best friend. These fluffy angels in disguise are constant companions, a source of distraction, and often offer a purpose to those who can't seem to find one anywhere else. No matter how often we may fail our dogs, they will always continue to love us faithfully, regardless of our flaws. This is what makes animals wonderful healers for the soul. In that sense, choosing a name that means "healer" is a great way to go if you specifically choose your dog for the purpose of acting as a healer. Perhaps you need him as emotional support, or maybe he helps to keep you safe in some other way, such as a service dog. Whatever the reason may be, choosing a title that means "healer" is a great way to pay homage to the wonderful works of love that your dog performs every single day.

Dog Name Meaning Healer Considerations

When deciding which name you'd like to choose for your dog, the best place to start may be the original ancestry of the breed. Names come from all over the world all kinds of different languages. Some are from mythology, others from root words of a language and so on. In an attempt to narrow things down, it may be best to do a bit of research about your breed and go from there; unless, of course, you just really like the sound of a name and don't care much about origin! 

For example, one name found on the list below is "Airmed", which is a female name of ancient Irish mythology. This title may fit perfectly for an Irish Terrier, who originates from the land of Ireland and is known as one of the oldest terrier breeds. Another example of choosing a name based on origin would be the male title, "Daktari" which is African. This name would be an excellent fit for a Rhodesian Ridgeback, as Africa is that particular breed's native homeland. Whether you decide to choose a name from this list for it's origin story, or simply because you like the way it sounds, you can be sure that the name will definitely represent your dog as the healer they are.
