Introduction

There is an overstuffed quiver worth of reasons you should give your dog a famous archer inspired name. Maybe they fly like an arrow, maybe they’re ultra silent or swift, maybe you’re really into history, fantasy or mythology — or maybe you’re just into astrology and they are a Sagittarius. Whatever the case may be, both history and literature alike have been littered with great characters and names of those who have accomplished great feats of marksmanship, stealth, or just plain-old analog body control. Either way, giving your dog an archer’s name will surely make them stand out and pay homage to the greats of the past, fictional or otherwise, and we’re here to help you hit the bullseye.

Famous Archer Inspired Dog Name Considerations

While there are certainly a lot of things to consider when trying to find your dog an apt famous archer inspired name, isolating both their traits and your preferences will be the easiest ways to start narrowing down the options. Consider whether you are giving them this themed name based on their personality or other attributes, such as their stealth, swiftness, quickness. Then, start to narrow down a field of possibilities based on your interests. 

For instance, if you are a fan of Greek mythology, consider giving your dog the name of a Greek hero or character that was famous for their skill with a bow and arrows, such as Hercules, Artemis, or Apollo. If you’re into fantasy novels or films, then you’ll likely find Legolas, Greenleaf, Kili, or Tauriel more appealing. For those into comic books, then Oliver, Queen, and Hawkeye would be perfectly suitable. 

Of course, you can read deeper into the stories of these characters as well, such as giving your dog that steals toys, socks, or anything else from you the name Robin Hood or the dog that made you fall in love with them (or your partner) the name Cupid. 

There are tons of directions you can take it, so don’t be afraid to get creative or think outside the box. If nothing else, giving them the name of your favorite famous archer is always a great default.
