Introduction

Choosing the perfect name for your newly adopted puppy or dog is exciting.  Many people pre-plan their new dog's names, sometimes years in advance, and rely on a number of dog name themes to guide them through the selection process.  Sometimes, dog owners have their hearts set a dog name that starts with "Ma" because they are trying to match their newly adopted canine companion's name to another pet or even to their own or their children's names.  The choices of names that start with "Ma" are many, and pet owners can find great names, such as Marco, Mandy, Maverick, and Maggie.

Dog Name that Starts with 'Ma' Considerations

 Dog owners have little considerations to take into account when choosing a name that starts with "Ma".  Any dog of any color, size, or breed can enjoy a name that begins with "Ma".  However, finding the perfect match may take some consideration.  For example, some names that start with "Ma" may allude to size or color.  Maximus and Mack, while suitable for any male dog, give the sense of large size.  Names such as Macaroni and Mango are ideally suited for smaller dogs.  Names like Magenta and Marble, on the other hand, are color descriptive, just as Malachite is also color descriptive.  However, a green-colored dog that inspires the name Malachite may be an anomaly.  

Dog owners can also consider their dog's breed to find regional names that start with "Ma".  A perfect example is Maya for a Chihuahua.  Chihuahuas are well represented in art, ritual, and burials among the Mayan people of pre-Colobumian Mexico.  Another breed regionally inspired dog name is Macbeth, which is perfect for the Scottish Deerhound, the Bearded Collie, or any of the other Scottish breeds of Terriers.  Macbeth was a famous Scottish warrior and king as well as one of Shakespeare's most tragic heroes.
