Introduction

While choosing a name for your new canine companion can be somewhat daunting, it can also be an enjoyable experience. Red is generally seen as a color of power in Western culture, one that denotes aggressiveness, passion, vigor, love, and desire, but it has other connotations in other countries. China, for instance, sees red as a sign of happiness, good fortune, and prosperity, while in South Africa it is the color of mourning. While these names are frequently used for dogs with reddish coats, it can also be employed as a more symbolic name, referring to qualities that are associated with the color.

Dog Names Meaning Red Considerations

There are several things to take into consideration when choosing a name for your new canine family member. Choosing a name that is easy for you to pronounce clearly and consistently and that sounds distinct from the commands you plan on teaching your dog may help to improve training sessions, while one that is difficult for your dog to clearly understand may lead to confusion and frustration. While a good portion of the people who choose a name based on the color red have a dog with a reddish coat, there are several shades of red possible, and that may affect your choice of name. A dog that sports a deep, dark red may find that names like Burgundy or Brick fit the bill, while a lighter color coat may inspire names like Poppy, Arun, or Ginger. The personality of the canine may also help to pinpoint the correct name for your dog and a fiery tempered animal may end up with a name like Chili or Ember, as can your own personal interests leading a wine aficionado toward names like Merlot or Barbera, while person with an interest in gems might be more inclined to choose names like Ruby or Bixbite.
