Introduction

Polar Bears are gorgeous, mysterious creatures that spend their days in the frozen wastelands of the world. If you can imagine how magical it would be to witness a Polar Bear emerging from the belly of a blizzard, stepping forward in all their glory, then you can imagine how the Inuit people felt when they witnessed these beautiful creatures. In fact, the Inuit were so impressed by the Polar Bear, that they viewed them as mythical beings that carried a human soul on Earth for a short time after someone passed away. They even have a Polar Bear god in their lore! Because of this, a lot of the names that you will see on this list are from the Inuit language and represent not only the bear itself, but also the characteristics that they deemed most important of the Polar Bear.

Dog Name Meaning Polar Bear Considerations

Perhaps the most obvious choice that comes to mind when considering one of these names is the color of your dog. If they are white, that may be one of the reasons why you are here! Another popular choice for a name that means Polar Bear would be the breed of dog. For instance, cold weather breeds such as the Siberian Husky, Malamute, Alaskan Husky, Samoyed, and American Eskimo Dog are just a few examples of dogs that would fit this moniker category perfectly. Of course, any breed can sport a Polar Bear name, however, because these mentioned breeds were typically used by people like the Inuit (or others in cold weather environments) they are a natural choice. One other consideration to keep in mind when choosing a name for your pup is personality. Because the Inuit people cherished so many of the bear's qualities (such as strength, motherhood, courage, cunning, and playfulness to name a few), if your dog has one of these characteristics, then they will also be an excellent fit for this category. For example, the name "Amka" is Inuit for "one who has a friendly spirit". This would be perfect for any dog who loves people, is playful, and captures that part of the Polar bear.
