Introduction

For fans of astronomy or just those looking to compare their little furry star to the ones that shine brightly in the night sky, giving your dog a star-related name can be a great way to help set them apart with a unique title while also paying tribute to their similarly unique personality. Many of the celestial bodies’ names have significant history, some dating back to the Ancient Greeks while others are derived from the Arabic language or even Latin, each with their own backstory and meaning that will provide the perfect parallels from which to base your dog naming.

Dog Name Meaning Star Considerations

When attempting to come up with a suitable star-meaning name, the first step should be to compile a list of your dog’s most obvious or prominent traits, including everything from the heart of their personality to the quirks of their behavior, as these will be the easiest points to work from. Then, scroll down our list (and pull up several other more comprehensive and translated lists of star names) and see what elements overlap.

For instance, if your dog tends to eat their toys instead of just chewing on them or playing with them, the name Albali, meaning “the swallower” would be absolutely perfect, as would Chalawan, after the crocodile king from the Thai folktale. If your dog is particularly good when it comes to endurance, the name Atlas, after the Greek Titan god of endurance, would certainly be suitable. If your dog always lays under your feet when you’re on the couch or in a chair, then the name Cursa, meaning “footstool” would be a clever pick. 

There are hundreds of stars with names, a vast majority of which have meaningful stories and names behind them, so do your best to scroll through as many as you can until you find the one that truly helps them shine.
