Introduction

Close to a third of all people on earth call themselves Christians, with Islam following closely behind. Eight in 10 people connect with at least one religion, even if they don’t practice it on a daily or regular basis. Given its prevalence in modern society, it makes sense for people to not only name their children after distinguishable religious figures but their pets as well.

After all, pet ownership is on the rise, so if you aren’t going to name your child Noah or Jesus, there’s no reason why you can’t call your pet those names instead. If you are looking for dog names with religious meanings, then you will find plenty of options below to suit both your tastes and your religious beliefs.

Dog Name Meaning Religious Considerations

When you decide to give your dog a holy name, there are a few things you need to consider. Some names are not going to be suitable for large dogs, while others won’t be suitable for small dogs.

Apollos, for example, is a tough name and would be less than ideal for a small and mild dog such as a Bichon Frise or Poodle. Goliath, however, which means giant, is more than suitable for a large dog. For comical reasons, it may also suit a small dog such as a Chihuahua.

If you have a dominant dog or a dog who likes to take charge, then the names of leaders could be entirely appropriate. For example, Abner was a commander of an army which would be a perfect name for a working dog. Abigail, or “Abi” for short, was a prophetess and wife of King David, which would be a lovely name for a female dog with a stubborn and “snobbish” streak.

For fun-loving, loyal, and cumbersome dogs, more “fun” names are necessary, but they can still be divine names as well. For example, Rufus, Silas, and Simon all feature in the various books in the Bible, but fit in with a kind, caring, and loyal dog as well such as a Labrador.
