Introduction

There are several ways in which new pet parents can find inspiration for names for their canine companions. Some individuals choose a name from a book, television show, or movie that they are particularly fond of, while others may choose a name that fits the dog's intended profession, such as Tracker for a hunting dog or Shep for a Shepherding dog. Others will choose names related to their favorite hobbies and activities. Another option is to choose a name that starts with a certain letter or combination of letters, like this list of names that starts with the letter "o" and "y".

Dog Name that Starts with Oy Considerations

There are many different ways in which to pinpoint the perfect name for your pooch from a list of names that start with a specific letter or set of letters. Some of the names on this list may lend themselves to dogs with a particular physical appearance. A name like Oystrige, an obsolete spelling of Ostrich, or Oyl, short for Olive Oyl, may suit a long, lanky dog. A moniker like Oystercatcher may work well for a dog with a darkly colored coat and Oyera will suit a pup with a white coat. 

Your dog's overall personality may help you to decide on their name, leading you to choose a name like Oyag for a nervous dog or Oysten for a canine that is generally happy, while their skills and interests may also help. A dog that loves to swim could be named after Olympic swimmers Yoshi Oyakawa or Tsutomu Oyokota, or after the African river goddess Oyawale. A quiet pup may be best tagged with a name like Oya or Oyvind, and a dog that is intended to be a guard dog will fit Oyendo or Oyente. A few of the names on here are better suited to one gender or another and there are several names that will work for either male or females, so it is a good idea to look through both lists.
