Introduction

There are many different ways to choose a name for a new canine companion. Some people may choose the name of a celebrity or icon that they admire for their new pooch, while others choose titles that reflect their interests, like a techie who names his dog Gigabyte or a botanist who names their dog Daisy or Fern. Further individuals may choose a moniker for their dog that has a specific meaning, such as names that refer to the nighttime. Night names are good for naturally nocturnal dogs, like the Great Pyrenees, the Anatolian Shepherd, and the Tibetan Mastiff, but make equally great names for dogs who are dark like the night sky, dogs who were born at night, and even dogs that like to howl at the moon.

Dog Names Meaning Night Considerations

While our canine companions typically don’t have to deal with being teased about their name on the playground, choosing a name for your dog is an important early step as a pet parent, and can seem daunting to some. Names that are easy for household members to pronounce and distinct from the basic obedience commands can help with comprehension during training, and a name that makes you happy can help strengthen the bond between you and your new pet. There are several ways to choose a tag for your pup from a list of names with a specific meaning, like this list of names meaning night. You could highlight a behavior; for instance, dogs that do like to howl at the moon could be dubbed Atheer, a name meaning the sound of night, or Samar, meaning conversations at night. Basing the moniker on a physical trait could lead to names like Galagos for a dog with big round eyes or Amaya for a spotted dog. Another option might include picking a name from the list based on the dog’s breed, maybe choosing a name like Jericho or Busana for a Canaan dog, the National Dog of Israel, or Ilta for a Finnish Lapphund or a Finnish Spitz.
