Dog Name that Starts with 'He' Considerations

What ultimately determines the name we choose for our pet? There isn't really an easy answer as quite a few factors can come into play, such as color, personality, size, or breed type, however a lot of the time the reasoning may be as simple as there is no reason at all. We may simply hear a name that we like and decide that we want something similar for our own pet. Or, perhaps the way that two letters sound together is extremely appealing to an individual, and so the choice is made to select a name that embodies that sound perfectly. The letters "he" when combined make a rather soothing sound, almost like a sigh. Considering this, a moniker with this letter combination may be chosen because it is purely relaxing to say. Because of this semi-relaxing mind set, if a breed were to be specifically designed to this theme, a couple of options may be: Bernese Mountain dogs (the gentle giants), Maltese, and Golden Retriever. While these dogs are not necessarily quiet at all times, they do tend to have very loving and affectionate personalities, with a caring side that can make pretty much any bad day just a little bit brighter.
