Are you seeking the perfect name for your precious pup? It’s a confusing and stressful task to be sure, but, it doesn’t need to be. While the name of your precious pooch is a very important part of who he is and who he will be, you can find a great name while keeping it simple and relatively low stress. Many people consider the breed of the new pet, the color, the gender and some of his cute characteristics for clues to potential names. Allow me to suggest an additional way to isolate that delightful designation we call a “name” … the alphabet. Let’s talk about dog names which start with the letter “A”.
Dog Names that Start with A in Pop Culture
The TV and movie industry have quite intelligently picked up on the soft spot that most of we viewers have for our beloved furry family members, making a variety of films and TV series reflecting that canine captivation. Their productions include movies involving mystery and stealth, love and marriage, and search and rescue in addition to many other areas of our everyday lives. Those productions are available in cartoon, digital animation and real movie “film” with real live characters, all of them gripping us by our heart strings to propel us through the story while we munch on our popcorn and pizza. While many of those famous dogs were only figments of the writer’s digital imagination, many were “real” live famous furry family members who played roles just like their human counterparts. Your “famous” furry family member can be just as spectacular!
For example, you may remember Ace the Bat-Hound … he is one of those famous dogs with whom you may have grown up. He was Robin’s pet and, living in the Bat Cave, he is known for lending help and encouragement to the Dynamic Duo. Initially, the role was played by a German Shepherd but later was played by a Mastiff, so some of you may remember him differently than some of the other viewers. Ace the Bat-Hound would assist the Dynamic Duo, using his exceptional Bat-skill of tracking, and, when not following his Bat-nose, he was an affectionate and loving Bat-Companion for the Dynamic Duo.
Or, how many of you remember dear old Mr. Magoo? I guess the younger of you may not be old enough to have experienced the cartoon escapades or the movie starring Mr. Magoo along with his nephew Waldo and Angus the Bulldog. Mr. Magoo was a gentle and loving little old man who was half blind and, as a result, managed to get himself into some very interesting situations which required assistance from Waldo and Angus throughout the live-action movie which was released in 1997. It was quite an entertaining TV children’s series.
Dog Names that Start with A Considerations
When it comes to naming any precious pet, one can consider their coat color, their size, breed and history. For example, you may have a Greyhound that you may wish to name Andretti, after the famous NASCAR driver, or a very verbal Terrier you could name Andy, after Andy Rooney, a famous writer, TV and radio personality who spoke on many political topics and current events. Your favorite puppy can be named after stones (like Agate) or spices (like Anise) or those which display a characteristic of his coat or color. Or he could be named a name which is reflective of a lovable ball of fur which occupies your lap quite often (think Abracadabra for the magical pup). The names and ideas are limited only by your imagination, which for many is practically limitless! And, remember the only “rule” you need to consider is what the name (or any shortened version of the name) will sound like to others when you call him from your front porch to across the street, across the dog park or from several blocks away. Just keep it fun!
