Introduction

Strength is defined as a beneficial quality or attribute of a thing. (The term "thing" must include dogs, right?) A large, powerful looking dog needs a name that exemplifies that brute strength, right? Should a Chihuahua have a name like Brutus? In actuality, any dog of any breed or size is entitled to a name that means strength. Yes, any dog can be strong, and he or she deserves a name that depicts that inner strength. By the same token, large, muscular dogs deserve a name that highlights their prowess. Exploring names that mean strength can lead potential pet owners to the perfect name for their pooch.

Dog Names Meaning Strength Name Considerations

Why should a potential pet parent consider giving their new pup a name that relates to strength or that means strength? Certainly, some particular breeds personify strength. These breeds include the Saint Bernard, Mastiff, Rottweiler, Irish Wolfhound, Pit Bull, Siberian Husky, Boxer, Great Dane, and the German Shepherd. The Saint Bernard is legendary for working in snowbound mountainous areas to save lives of travelers who became trapped during snowstorms. Also, Stephen King depicted his rabid Cujo as a Saint Bernard in a novel of the same name; the Saint Bernard, although sick, is able to tear into a small car. The Mastiff is a humongous dog who has been entrusted to guard the homes of many throughout the years. The Rottweiler is a distant relative of the Mastiff, and he was traditionally used to drive cattle to the marketplace in his home of Germany. The Irish Wolfhound is a gentle giant; however, he measures over six feet in height standing on his back legs. The Pit Bull is a tenacious dog, as is the Siberian Husky. The Boxer and Great Dane are both very large, powerful dogs. The German Shepherd is known for his work as a military dog and a police dog. Each of these breeds exemplify strength, be it physical strength or other areas of fortitude.
