Dog Name Meaning Thunder Considerations

Dogs with loud, thundering barks are an obvious choice for this name consideration. Breeds like the Basset Hound, Doberman, Mastiff, and the Great Dane are known for their deep sounding expressions. Other breeds like the Keeshond, Maltese, Miniature Schnauzer, Pekingese and Pomeranian are also recognized as having a very verbal way of expressing themselves. If your talkative dog can rival the rumbling in the clouds, naming them after the thunder phenomenon is a good idea!

High energy dogs will generally be suited with equally energetic names. Breeds like Airedale Terriers, Australian Shepherds, Border Collies, Dalmatians, and English Springer Spaniels are all hyperactive and playful. They have the same innate power that thunder has. These amazing dogs will never tire of working or playing with you!

Our name choices are a mix of thunder gods and the word thunder in different languages. It's definitely an interesting mix of ancient and historical influences. These names can serve as an homage to a culture that is native to you or your dog as well. Naming your Chinese Shar-Pei "Leizi," or your Mexican Chihuahua "Xolotl" is a nice cultural touch.
