Introduction

So, you’ve made a decision of your life to adopt a dog, but you’re out of your depth in the vast world of dog names. Have no fear, because the trick is to focus on either your interests or a language, and the traditional names that that language may offer to you. If you happen to be familiar with Dutch culture, or you’ve visited Amsterdam while traveling across Europe, you must have noticed the rich history and culture that this Northern country prides itself on. Therefore, if your choice rests on The Netherlands as your guide through the difficult task of naming your dog, rest assured that you’ve made the right decision!

Dutch Dog Name Considerations

If this amazing story about Pompey’s heroism has inspired you, perhaps you should consider giving your dog the name of his owner, the brave William of Orange. Pompey’s breed is still debated as some believe that he was a relative of what today we call a Pug, while some argue it might have been a Kooikerhondje, the breed made famous by Dutch masters Rembrandt and Jan Steen. Be what it may, if you happen to own a dog that is similar in appearance to Spaniels, you can consider these names.

Then again, you mustn’t overlook the illustrious Dutch artists when searching for a suitable name for your doggo. Dutch and Flemish Renaissance painters are famous worldwide, so much so that it is almost impossible to decide who made a larger impact on their successors and the world of art in general. Skim through your high-school Art History books, and remind yourself of the masters of Dutch painting and architecture. Our suggestions are Vincent, to honor the Post-Impressionist painter Vincent Van Gogh, (especially if you’re dog has ginger fur and quirky habits), and Jan, not only being a frequent Dutch name to this day, but also the name of one of the most significant painters of the Northern Renaissance, Jan van Eyck.
