Introduction

English Pointers, also known as “Pointers”, are hunting dogs that were originally bred in England around the mid-1600s. They were developed to “point” smaller animals such as birds and hares, hence the name. Before hunting with shotguns was even a thing, hunters bring English Pointers with them to trace an animal’s scent and “point” the hunters towards the right direction. By the 17th century, the English Pointer became more recognized and utilized among hunters. This dog breed is known to be energetic, intelligent, loyal, and obedient. They are very active and can easily adapt to a new environment. With appropriate training and frequent socialization, English Pointers can be excellent companions and family members.

English Pointer Dog Names

Naming a new dog is never an easy decision to make. Nowadays, anything under the sun inspires a name. Oftentimes, dog owners, especially first timers, easily get influenced by ideas posted online and elsewhere. The problem in that is there are too many names that sound cute and pleasant. In the end, the dog owners end up choosing a name simply because it sounds ‘nice’. What a lot of dog owners fail to take into consideration is that the dog name must correlate with the dog’s origin, personalities, qualities, or physical appearance for it to be special and authentic. A dog name that simply sounds ‘nice’ and ‘cute’ does not suffice.

For English Pointers, you can choose a name that reflects their fun-loving nature, perhaps a name that means happiness or joy. The names Isaac, Winston, and Felix are good examples for male Pointers and the names Carol, Aida, and Bliss work for female Pointers. You can also choose a name that symbolizes your dog’s devotion and versatility. And since the English Pointer is originally a hunting dog and also hunter’s companion, you can choose a name that means “hunter” or “companion,” or a name that defines the characteristics of a hunting dog, such as brave, alert, quick-thinking.

From the breed name itself, an English Pointer originated in an English-speaking country which is England. So it would make sense to choose an English name or a name that relates with England’s culture. However, if you feel the need to be a little less common, you can always choose a name that is of a different language.
