Egyptian Mythology Dog Name Considerations

Naming a dog is an important custom for many people and not one taken lightly.  Some owners feel deep connections to ancient Egyptian mythology because they work in the field, enjoy Egyptian inspired entertainment, or have a general thirst for knowledge of all things Egyptian.  The connection to the ancient myths of Egypt may lead some owners to chose a godly name that befits their revered pooch.  Dog owners can name their dogs anything they want, regardless of breed, size, or color but there are some considerations owners may want to take when choosing the Egyptian theme.

When it comes to breeds, there are some sleek-looking fleet canines that have possible origins in Egypt.  These breeds include the Basenji, Greyhound, Ibizan, Pharaoh, Saluki, and the Whippet.  All of these breeds have long slender legs with long necks and pointed muzzles.  Their skin is tight, and their coats are short and sleek, giving them a regal, powerful, and graceful look befitting that of an Egyptian god.  Owners may also want to consider the size of their dog when choosing an Egyptian mythological inspired name.  The Sphinx, for example, is a large and famous monument in Egypt and befitting of a large dog, such as an American Yellow Labrador Retriever.  Smaller dogs might benefit from smaller sounding names, like Bastet, who was the Egyptian goddess of warfare.
