Dog Name That Starts with 'Mc' Considerations

If you are wanting to choose a "Mc" name for your pet based on breed alone, a few that would fit into the category perfectly could be the Border Collie, Irish Red Setter, Irish Terrier, Scottish Terrier, Cairn Terrier, or Scottish Deerhound (to name a few). There are many, many other examples of Scottish and Irish breeds that would also fit into this category extremely well. Breed will be the biggest factor when it comes to choosing a "Mc" name, however personality can be taken into consideration as well. For instance, if you have a happy-go-lucky Scottish Terrier who has a goofy side, the name "McGuffy" could be a great choice as it is both happy and light. On the other hand, if you have a dog that is more sophisticated and stoic, a name such as "McConaughey" may be perfect as it represents a talented, suave actor who many people appreciate. Another consideration for whether or not you choose a "Mc" name may be based on your heritage. If you have a family member or an ancestry that bears a "Mc" name, choosing something similar for your fluffy family member is an excellent way to pay tribute to your past!
